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

Er... nope. In this case the EU has weakened its position dreadfully. I'm no Brexit fan but in any situation you don't think is ideal there will still be the odd moment when it's ok. The EU has shown itself (albeit momentarily) to be petty with those at the top making decisions without consulting experts and taking a reasonable approach. The EU commission pissed almost everyone off, did a swift u-turn that makes it look like a complete fool and... passed power to the UK as a consequence.
The UK was lucky that the EU made this U-turn but luck is not a reliable long-term strategy.

When you wrote "The EU commission pissed almost everyone off" then who do you mean by "everyone", outside of Europe who commented?
