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

Then it gets interesting. Extension of Art. 50, will this get through? The order of the votes means that if this final vote does get rejected then the UK will leave without a deal on March 29th. Plus it'll give the politicians the added benefit of being able to go out afterwards and say "well I didn't vote for a no deal Brexit".
Unless something big happens between now and then, I think the extension will be accepted because all the remainer MPs will vote for it, as will those leave MPs who still believe they can get a better deal than no-deal.


And this extension thing can be repeated and repeated. So in other words, May can kick the can down the road until either something new happens, or the EU says enough.


In other words, we get much of the negative outfall associated with Brexir, such as loss of investor confidence, without actually getting the positive bits of Brexit, such as actually being outside the EU.
