EU referendum: Juncker in 'out is out' warning to UK - BBC News

EU referendum: Juncker in 'out is out' warning to UK - BBC News | Welfare, Disability, Politics and People's Right's | Scoop.it
The UK will not be able to return to the negotiating table if it votes to leave the European Union, top official Jean-Claude Juncker says.
britishroses's insight:
We clearly are not very important to the EU, so thereforth should not cause WW3 or a global recession. Cameron asked for crumbs and got crumbs, we can do better, we want to trade globally without all the red tape and time delays of the EU; we will still be their friends and neighbours and trade with them and help them when and where we can, with intelligence etc. There will be no need to return to the negotiating table, it's a failing state and more and more want out of it. We can lead the way. Have confidence we are the 5th largest economy in the world after all. #TakeBackControl #LabourLeave #VoteLeave
