Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

Usually the EU leaders say that after Brexit the UK should not finish up with a better deal than the current one; sounds fair to me?
Even if the EU leaders wanted it, it is not for them to grant it. You simply can not have one player in the market who is not subject to the rules, regulations and jurisdiction of the market. An awful lot of work has gone into trying to ensure a fair market over the years, so trying to convince Europeans toss that aside is not something the politicians will do. Nor will they want to hold at least 3 referenda on it.

Mind you depending on the outcome of the general election in NI in March, Mrs. May may have a very different landscape to deal with. If it turns into a referendum on EU membership and I expect SF will make it that and if people vote the same way, then we may be into GFA territory...
