The majority of voters in the last EU parliamentary elections, voted for parties that support a closer union, so how would they behave if not to kept the union going. Seriously.



Well if that is the case, then with 48% of it's exports going to the EU, we can expect the UK to accept FMOP, ECJ etc so they will get a deal, can we? After all trade is more important to the UK than principles according to your logic.



What could be simpler than telling people you are leaving and tidying up your affairs and well just leaving. There is no mechanism to prevent a member leaving, except the reluctant member themselves... It's a couple of months ago now since the EU appointed it's negotiators, where are the UK negotiators???
I think they should work to keep the union going, by having a favorable deal with the U.K. On the best terms for both, ignoring free movement, principles, tariffs and the rest of it and just say 'ok, what's best for both of us, for Europe and for you'. That's good government of your European Union. Not trying to hurt someone when they leave to scare others into staying. It's a political union for gods sake, not ISIS.

Im sure the U.K. will have its negotiators. A few weeks ago everyone was convinced we would never get a trade deal with the u.s. Now they want to make one as soon as is possible.

This may turn out really crap for England. Unlike yourself I am not wedded to being in our out if the eu. What matters is the will of the people is followed and in this case the voting majority voted to leave so that's what the country has to pull its socks up and get on with, for better or worse.
