    No, like everything else, you misunderstand democracy. I posted a defintion for you and other simplistic idots. As ever it went in one ear and out the other because you don't hear anything that doesn't align with your distorted worldview. Democracy is being able to choose someone else to act on your behalf. Normally the choice of people excludes raving idiots, and that's how we normally avoid Brexit catastrophes.

    I mean just look at the uproar over the fuel hikes in France right now.

    And no for clarity the economy of the EU does not rest on British people getting pissed abroad.

    However some parts of the EU would miss the tourist pound.

    It stems from his innumeracy.
    Given the cretious nature of certain Brits, I am amazed Portugal has not banned UK holiday home owners already.

    I think that will need to be established before a referendum. There'll need to be an extension period too.

    Which is what it should have been in the first place rather than Brexit cheerleaders misleading people that they could have their cake and eat it.
    But how do you know we can remain on the same terms. That is by no means certain.
