Subject: RE: BS: To Br/Exit Or Not To Br/Exit
Those who are cheering on Junker & Co., will see exactly why the vote to Leave was the correct one.

Now according to the Treaty the mechanism agreed by all 28 member states covering any member state leaving is Article 50. This says that the member state wishing to leave the EU must formally inform the EU and then the process is put in train and that process takes two years in which negotiations take place to finalise the matter.

The UK has not formally given notice so at present we are still full members of the EU and we should be up until the process is completed - now tell me how Jean-Claude is doing obeying EU rules? Next weeks Council of Ministers is being held with 27 Heads of Government not 28.

Junker & Co can say whatever they want the timing of giving formal notice is up to the UK NOT the EU. As someone has already said one idea would be that if the EU are going to disobey their own rules (Which they do regularly as long as it suits either the Commission, Germany or France) then why should the UK pay into the EU's coffers.
