Careful with what you wish for. He who digs a pit will fall into it; if someone rolls a stone, it will roll back on them.
Poster like TonyClifton always seem to ignore the obvious - the EU, USA, China etc... have no intention of sitting back while the UK some magically move forward ahead of them. Of course they won't and they have far more resources and capabilities to enforce their position than a junior partner, with is what the UK is about to become.

They also ignore the fact that if you at the history of the EU it is actually very capable of reform, it's just that that reform does not suit him, so he choose to ignore it and pretend it does not happen.

For instance the EU is second only to the US when it comes to military spending and as the focus moves a way from NATO and onto coordinated EU defence spending you can expect more cash will be available for investment in European projects and the UK will not be in the queue for either US or EU military spending and so on. Going it alone seeking to built a technology basis is not on the cards but anyway...
