Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The Brexiteer leitmotiv has always been the assumption that the current Benefits of the EU can be taken for granted and preserved, while the costs and obligations can be avoided.  Thus there is no need for customs controls at the border, and it will be the EU's fault if they are implemented. In principle they want everything to stay the same, but without the UK's contribution to the EU budget, subjugation to EU regulation, and requirement to pool sovereignty. Only the EU's stubbornness and desire to "punish Britain" is preventing this form being eminently feasible.
