The outcome of the referendum asking Britain to leave the EU notwithstanding Britain may choose not to leave. Why? The Referendum itself is just advisory and not legally binding. 51.9% of Brits might have voted to leave, but the only legal opportunity to leave derives its powers from Article 50 of the Treaty of Lisbon, the EU legislation governing a potential breakup. Why Prime Minister David Cameron, who led the Remain campaign, repeatedly said that a Leave victory would automatically result in the triggering of Article 50, we don't know (maybe to win votes for a stay), his utterance is more theoretical than practical. The only challenge is can the govt of Britain choose to ignore the advice of 51.9% of Britons?
