The UK was a powerhouse before EU so I'm pretty confident they will pull this off. It's not 'when' that matters, its 'how'. There are two options, exit at once and reform as fast as possible or reform in increments till a final exit. Farage is looking for the quick exit, and I somewhat agree, it's not like they have no experience in being an independent country [Kingdom]. The longer it drags out the more uncertainty and politics would creep in.
It would be easier and quicker to deal with the changes and adapt as they happen after an abrupt exit than to politicize a plan to exit, which have no guarantees either. Merkel seeking a fourth term, and succeeding, will only strengthen the resolve to exit sooner rather than later (not my opinion, UK opinion) as well.
I think that even if you UK does leave the agreement will be such that the UK might as well stay in the EU. I actually don't think it will happen in the end, there are quite a few road blocks that could stop things.
I am a Brit who voted to leave, I hope we go out quickly of EU and do not stay longer than necessary.
I agree that some stuff out of Brussels was good but the majority was bureaucratic clap trap and damned expensive at that.
If EU had been truly democratic (which it is not) then it would allow member states to negotiate. Brussels thought Remain would win and it could cnotinue to bully with the same reasoning as a Comora Don, Well we give that a good kicking.
Brussels also thinks that the UK will be a shrinking violet but when we are needed then we will answer. This will change.
The sacrifices that the UK have made upon the world stage have been enormous in all aspects whereas some in Europe are all take, take and more take. Brussels might find that it will have to say Non, No, Nein, and Niet a bit more often after 2019
Donald Trump (Whom I do not like) is perfectly right in tearing up those trade agreements that only suit certain countries and we in Britain are now going to do the same thing. In fact we have led in this idea. Globalisation is a massive failure.
I see Britain as escaping the clutches of a European Chancellor dictating to 500 million captives. Last time this was tried was between 1933 and 1945.
Teresa May will trigger article 50 in March 2017. 2 years later whether negotiations are finished or not on March 31st 2019, we will no longer be part of the EU.

I don't think it's correct to make such a comparison as we all know what was the regime then and how it was imposed! I also don't think someone is dictating to others. Every single member state can leave and break the agreements. Maybe there is a good reason for not doing that for the other countries. In my opinion EU is not about dictating and imposing, it's about joining forces and uniting the rules 😄 How it is being achieved is another story 😄 I am not for or against Brexit, just wanted to comment on this aspect.
