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

Although it won't happen like this, the result will essentially be the same. Barnier is simply there to ensure whatever deal is agreed will not encourage others to leave. Barnier goal is purely political. Individual countries however will want a deal has the least impact as possible on them. This is where things will get interesting, especially as the EU states most exposed to Brexit are the larger ones.
Barnier was reported to have been chastised as a loose canon by Juncker himself for the outburst.

I think they recognize that such political rhetoric is meaningless and counter-productive. The more they blurt out such things, the more credibility they lose down the road.

I think the UK can start driving a wedge between EU interests and national interests.
