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

France, Germany & Spain will be in deep shit with no deal, by leaving with no deal you put the ball in their court. A50 states 2 years so no unnecessary hurry at all, the Uk did not choose 2 years as the time frame.
That's the old, and anything but intelligent, argument along the lines of cutting your nose to spite the neighbor.
"Yeah, it will have huge consequences, potentially lethal for many. But a few Irish will die as well so it's all good" - it really can't get any more moronic.
Besides, it's a bit of a change from the initial "every country will want to have a trade deal with the UK, getting them will be trivial".

See the announcement by Next linked to on here a while ago, they count on zero import tariffs, whereas UK's export destinations will be forced to impose 30% import tariffs due to WTO regulations. Obviously that would render UK's exports mostly noncompetitive.

As for all the rest, see Odile's #22843 and Troubleawesome's #22844 for additional elaborations. Plus the two before them.

(Welcome back Odile btw)
