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

It was the EU that ignored the result, same as they've ignored the result of the 2014 Swiss referendum on FMOP, and until that Swiss issue is resolved, I fail to see how the UK can have a bespoke fart never mind a bespoke deal.
They didn't ignore it. Switzerland was given a clear message that no FMOP = No single market membership. Switzerland was correctly left to decide how to deal with the issue internally. Which we did, even though the SVP are not exactly happy with the result.

Opinion polls seem to indicate the populace in general is accepting, though.
