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

Anyway, this being the Brexit thread and me being the oursider: How is this handled now? GB is still in during the negotiations, right? Or is it already considered out and no longer allowed to take part?
Is this like the period of separation in a marriage? One must still pay but doesn't have a say?
If you understand UK divorce procedures:
1. Decree Nisi
2. Decree Absolute
3. Financial settlement, custody, etc...

Brexit is currently past the Decree Nisi stage with many people trying to move the Decree Absolute to after the Financial Settlement, etc, has been finalised. Nobody has even begun to decide who keeps what car (Open Skies Treaty) and there are still 4+million kids + partners + offspring who won't know for certain where they stand until it's all over.

It's not a very messy divorce, but there's a lot of dithering, lack of direction and precious little certainty about anything. For many Brits currently in Switzerland, we can't live with dad (CH), don't want to live with mum (UK) and want to move in with a friendly aunt (EU) after the divorce is over, but mum currently says she won't allow it (landlocked).
