So far


Der Spiegel on Brexit:

'Furthermore, the fact that the British economy has not plunged yet is due to a simple truth: Nothing much has changed so far. The UK is still an EU member and it still has access to the common market. Two years from now, however, things will be different.

May knows this too. On Wednesday, she warned "there will be consequences for the UK of leaving the EU." The country would lose influence over the European economic rules to which British companies would have to adhere in the future. It's not for nothing that May's stated goal wasn't the "exact same benefits" but the "best-possible deal."'

I would still bet on a Brexit in name only. A face-saving Brexit, but who knows, some people are too proud (or too stupid) for face-saving deals.
