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

I watched a bit of BBC yesterday, someone claimed that the UK got similar deal to Norway yet Norway allows free movement of people. How can that be?
It's nothing at all what Norway has. Norway is in the single market. Free trade, unimpeded because rules are automatically aligned. The UK will enjoy tariff and quota-free trade, but it won't be in the single market or even in the EU customs union. If the UK deviates from EU rules (or vice-versa), retaliatory tariffs will be applied, and trade won't be as smooth. Even Switzerland has some hurdles compared to our neighbours, and the UK deal may be way worse (may, because nobody has the full text yet).
