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

We will never know now, however I doubt the situation would be the same now if the UK:
  • hadn't triggered Art 50 before contingency planning was finished
  • hadn't triggered Art 50 before having a coherent negotiation strategy and knowing precisely what the UK wanted
  • had made adequate no deal preparations
  • hadn't accepted the EU sequencing of negotiations
  • hadn't accepted the Irish backstop
If they had actually done points one to three and people were made aware of what it would really mean, they most likely would never have gotten to points 4 or 5.

And even if they did it would not have made a bit of a difference. Because the EU is rule based and will apply those rules exactly the same and any change to that would require treaty changes which is something they would never agreed to for the same of a thirty country and none to the BREXIT gang would accept the idea of the Danes, the French and the Irish voting to decide there future.
