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

All the Brexit negotiations appear to be about how to bind the UK's arms and legs after it leaves. LOL.

Because if you haven't noticed, should the UK heavily deregulate and slash taxes, the EU would not be able to compete. Such a UK would be the EU's worse nightmare, yet it would be the UK's best interests in terms of fitness and form.

I don't think the EU can survive in such a competitive environment. They can pussyfoot around for a while, but that is what it will come to in the end.

There is absolutely no need for the UK to sell itself short here. It holds the upper hand in this. With that in mind, it can even demand things now if May were only wise enough.

MUKGA!
Corporation tax in the EU member Ireland is 12.5%

Corporation tax in UK is 19%, reduced from 28%. How low can UK go and would Ireland also reduce.

UK slashing taxes is not really a viable strategy
