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.

I don't know, to be honest I'm utterly lost and confused about the whole thing.

Unfortunately, I suspect I'm not as lost and confused as Theresa May and the UK govt.

Worth mentioning May removed 2 members of the negotiating team last week, post election, replacing them with new ones. With a week to go to the negotiations. Now, tell me that's not lost and confused :shifty:
