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

Negotiating inside the EU has untold advantages and friction less trade can continue uninterrupted. Once no deal happens, the UK is a third country and a trade deal will take 1 more decades to complete with the exact same issues that will need solving first: Ireland, EU citizens, tariffs.

Every country with a trade deal already with the EU, like Japan and Canada will demand the UK doesn't get better terms than them. So the best the UK can get is worse than what they already have today, it can never get better!

Not many people in the UK understand that. No Deal Brexit is really the nightmare scenario but I start to believe people need to experience the pain and hardship as they've become too soft 7 decades without a war. They need to understand their place in the world and the gratitude they should owe to the European project. Peace can never be underestimated.
