But you strike a deal and encourage other members to leave, you're also cutting your nose off to spite your face. Which leaves us to ask which is the lesser of two evils and pretty much every EU politician asked has answered that loss of trade with the UK is by far the lesser evil. The only people claiming that the EU would see the loss of trade as the greater evil are those who have a vested in promoting that belief.
Because from a political perspective they have a vested interest in keeping the EU going as it is. From an economic perspective, which is what matters, having a poor trading relationship with a big economy like the UK is not in anyone's benefit.

If other countries want to leave, why not let them ? What right does a politician have to force a country to remain within a club they formed ?
