Also, I'm not sure whether the UK would necessarily need to join EFTA to remain in the EEA after leaving the EU. They're two different treaties and there's some legal ambiguity as to whether an EEA exit is implied.

The EEA is certainly not the easy way out though. It's more like a bad compromise that should please nobody and the EFTA countries are only in it because they lack the political will to become EU members.

It is like their own home politics. Norway wont join because all the other Scandinavian countries are in. That is Norway.
