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

Quote:
The more you hear people talk about the changes they want post-Brexit, the more it sounds like it would have been better to simply overhaul the EU rather than leave it. Even the most ardent leave voters are adamant that trade deals and movement of people are important things to keep.
The EU will be overhauled in the next decade, but it will not be in the way the UK wants, so that it pointless.

The European Fiscal Compact is the first step towards a more integrated economy with a finance minister etc on the way. There is the EU Army, the move a way from nation constituencies for EU parliamentary elections etc... Do you see the UK signing up for that?

As for FMOP, the problem there are entirely of the UK's own making. The failed to apply the EU directive rules, they could have curtailed the third country immigration etc.. but they did not.
