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

An interesting comment here from Michel Barnier:

This would appear to be a very different perspective than what the UK have. And certainly no possibility of the UK parliament voting on the final deal before they leave.
I suspect Michel Barnier will end up eating these words. Of course the UK will end up getting offered a bespoke deal, it's ridiculous to suggest that there's only two off the shelf options available, neither of which are very suitable for the UK's largely service based economy. This is posturing and nothing more.

It's always telling when Barnier says one thing and member states say something else. The second biggest issue the UK will have to face in these negotiations behind the chaos going on in Westminster will be that the EU will be more politically than pragmatically driven when setting out their positions. Another good reason the UK left.
