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!
Absolutely spot on! The UK should become a low cost tax haven. That'll teach those pesky Europeans with their idiot socialist ideas and high growth rates.

PS I got the date for my interview to become a French citizen yesterday.
