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

What will delaying achieve? There's been two and a half years to negotiate, there is no better deal to be had. The EU doesn't negotiate which is why we're leaving in the first place.
Possibly the Euro elections in May will see a Euro-wide swing to right of centre parties and maybe a EU that will be more willing to offer the UK more favourable terms.

This is a very long shot though, as none of the front runners in any of the countries have made any statements or promises to that effect AFAIK. Some have criticized the present EU negotiating team but they have not said what they would have done differently.

OTOH, I don't think the EU will be willing to let things drag on that long, and even if there is an extension, it will be of limited duration.
