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

However having a second referendum on it would be a joke, because legally there is no way back no matter what the politicians say. Any EU citizen could take an action to the ECJ requiring that the UK completes the process.
Many, including Lord Kerr (formerly a British diplomat, now a crossbencher in the House of Lords), who drafted Article 50, and senior government figures including presidents and prime ministers within the EU, seem to think that Brexit is revocable provided negotiations have not concluded. This is just one of literally hundreds of references that attest to this position.
