Yes, but we will yet see how Britain is going to fare with that Brexit
That's what I said. If Britain creates an investment haven with low taxes and minimal regulations just on the border of the EU they'll have a competitive edge over the beaurocratic continent. In recent years Britain with its relaxed tax laws received more money in FDI than any other country in Europe, including the biggest economy - Germany.
The UK doesn't have to change its attitude, it simply has to do more of what they did already.
Indeed, Europe owes a debt of gratitude to the Brits
The EU [EU does not equal Europe. The EU is the antithesis of traditional Europe] made the whole process as complicated and difficult as possible with the sole purpose in mind to discourage the other members from leaving. You know, like a possessive girlfriend in a toxic relationship. The UK has pushed through showing that it's possible to leave and not on terms dictated by the EU.
Anyway, this painful - for both sides - Brexit has ended. The next possible -exit will use its example to speed things up and to make the process go smoother.
Like I said before: the UK needs to show the rest that the benefits of leaving are well worth going for it.
