Consequences, not retribution to Brexit

EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker and French presidential hopeful Emmanuel Macron agreed that the United Kingdom (UK) shouldn’t be punished for exiting the European Union (EU). Instead, there should be consequences with a view to “preserving the rest of the EU” they both said without elaborating further. One can therefore assume that the consequences should be aimed at dissuading other members from leaving the EU. It’s unlikely, commented Cyceon, that this will incite the Europeans to like the EU more.
