Brexit vote could 'in theory' be reversed: EU minister Moscovici

PARIS (Reuters) - Britain's vote to leave the European Union could "in theory" be reversed although there is a still a strong probability it will go ahead, said the European Commissioner for Economic and Financial Affairs Pierre Moscovici on Monday.

 

Moscovici was replying on French radio to a question related to a move by the co-founder of fashion brand Superdry to donate a million pounds ($1.28 million) to the campaign for a referendum on the final Brexit agreement.

 

Asked whether the Brexit vote could be reversed, Moscovici told France Inter radio: "It is, in theory...it is up to the British themselves who have made the decision to leave, to decide ultimately if they will or not, and how they will do it."

 

"The probability of Brexit is nevertheless very strong because there has been a vote of the people, a referendum..." added Moscovici.

 

Asked if there would definitely be a deal between Britain and the European Union regarding the terms of Brexit, Moscovici also replied: "Not necessarily."

Is it not time for Burka Boris to fulfil on his aspirations and put some flesh on the bones of just how anyone for generations is going to be better off out than in millionaires aside. As an expat I'm sick to death of the constant relentless tide of drivel from all sides wreaking havoc with my 70p pound?

He is quite correct, 'we' did vote out, that is why we are leaving. The people that did not vote out will be leaving too.

It is 100% inaccurate of him to use “we” to refer to an entire nation supporting his view.

So said this EU bureaucrat.

 

Well he is kind of half right. Yes, the British themselves made the decision to leave. The way it will be done does depend on the EU up to a point, but only up to a point.

Last time a few US States decided to leave a 'union' we fought a bloody civil war over it.

Forget referendums, you guys got the bigger guns (well you used to at least), just go for it, declare war, invade France
