This straw clutching by Brexiteers will soon come home to roost. The EU is stronger as a whole than the UK, and can, and will afford to face down the UK.

The really sad thing is that if we do call the EU's bluff and fall out, then the usual suspects in the media will proceed to blame the EU, Juncker, Merkel - in fact everyone bar the real culprits; the politicans and lobbyists that sold a pup to a gullible UK electorate. Whether that washes remains to be seen.
