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

Quote:
And the referendum didn't indicate what kind of Brexit people wanted. This is very simple stuff, Clocker.

You can have that only if the EU treaty predefines what an exit would look like for any country and what the relationship with the EU would be - which is not the case now.



If you would do that now, then a country would go to the EU with a statement like "we are thinking about leaving. can we negotiate a detailed agreement so that we can have a referendum about it?".



Apart from putting the country in an extremely bad negotiation position, do you think the EU would even start with it as it is an extremely time-consuming process as most likely a waste of time?
