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

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.
Have you even read A50? There would be no treaty change in order for the UK to remain part of the programme. This just typifies the sheer inflexibility and dogmatic approach of the EU. If they don't want the UK to remain a member of the programme then they should repay the UK's investment into it. Let the treaties plug that 15% hole.
