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

The EU has been a convenient whipping boy for a weak and incompetent government.

Underfunded education? EU's fault.
Underfunded NHS? EU's fault.
Austerity measures? EU's fault.

Part of me thinks that a no-deal Brexit will be the ultimate "told you so" when the buck stops at the UK government and puts a glaring spotlight on their incompetence, although if the last three years are anything to go by there is little doubt of how badly parliament performs when faced with something they absolutely must sort out by a deadline.
It's not only in the UK, sadly most of the right wing European politicians are using this strategy. I say sadly because in my opinion the current "conservative" establishment (and in all fairness not only them but mostly them) has totally compromised themselves. Back home I'm still voting with a centre-right party only because they didn't resort to these tricks. And they improved their agenda (a lot) in regards with social policies. Well, I still make the effort to (religiously) vote even though I am living here.
