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

The U.K. government, which is negotiating Brexit, is currently looking for a soft departure. They’ve made clear from the outset that they wanted to remain a member of certain programmes and were willing to keep on paying their fair share to do so. This is sheer bloody mindedness from the EU, which is why the U.K. is demonstrating that it is willing to go it alone. They’ll just have their £1.4 billion back thank you.
And right from the start they were told that this is not possible, if they are unable to read A50 that is their problem. Any change in that status would require a treaty change, meaning at the very least a referendum in Ireland and possibly France and Denmark. Not to mention changes to the role of the ECJ in supervising such agreements and so on. That is not going to happen for the sake of a third country no matter how many excuses you bring forward.
