If you are thinking of voting to leave, I ask you to think again. I have not heard either side talk about the biggest problem with leaving:
Almost all of our trade agreements and a large part of our current laws are based on our EU membership. The leave campaign talk as though we can just negotiate new agreements, and they don’t even mention the need to revise a massive proportion of our legislation. But how practical is this really?
Well, an optimistic estimate is that this is going to take well over 10 years. We just don’t have the diplomats and parliamentary time or resources to do it any faster – and even to do it in 10 years will mean doing a bodged job and abandoning the idea of democracy in the form of proper parliamentary oversight and debate as we revise so much of our law.
