One of the key arguments, if not the key argument, of the Brexiteers is that if Britain came out of the EU, our position would be just like that of Norway.
No it would not.
The EU does not want to break up. They do not want anyone else to follow our example. If England and Wales leave, the EU is going to make life as difficult as possible for us pour encourager les autres. Trade agreement negotiations will be protracted and complex, barriers will be high and difficult to unlock, decision makers will be hard to contact. They want to see us crash and burn.
Neither side of the EU referendum debate will make this argument.
It is not in the interests of the Brexiteers to make it at this point in the game, and the Remain camp feel that it to point it out would paint the EU in a bad light.
It is true nonetheless. Brexit would be an unmitigated economic disaster for us
