Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
An approach to the "issuing A.50 notifications willy nilly only to withdraw them at the last moment" difficulty could be that the EU declares in advance that the only sort of xxEXIT is with no deal. The EU refuses to spend any time or energy "negotiating" with an exiting country until it is actually gone.

That is not a true statement.

Rather, UK gov has been unable over several decades of participation in union government to obtain allies for its peculiar point of views about EU political processes governing distribution of booty among member states -- some called the campaign "EU reform."

Now, whether or not, EU political process are as "neoliberal" as UK government would want is another issue of arguments altogether.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
