Press release of Ioannis Tosounidis to the newspapers “The Times” of the UK, “FAZ” of Germany and “Le Figaro” of France regarding the “Brexit means Brexit”
Despite the fact that the UK would like to talk a lot about Brexit and act as if there was Brexit, Brexit has not happened apart from the “act”, “pretend” (and some malignant people would call ”bullshit”) Brexit. That means that ideally the UK would seek a period of “pretend” Brexit in which would like to “gain time” and also examine the parameters and implications of Brexit. It would also like secretly to see the EU falling apart (maybe by pressing already pressed states such as Greece or due to the refugee crisis). However and in the meantime the EU states may form a coalition against the UK and force the UK to accept the implications of the 64036/14 and 33900/15 ECHR case “Ioannis Tosounidis vs the UK” (especially since this case has its own agenda in the global field). After this the UK may come back to the Union but with no security like before. The alternative of course will be (when and if real Brexit happens) not “splendid” but “banale” isolation.
