Indeed; I see the prospect of the UK leaving the EU as a losing proposition for both parties, but there are upsides.

And secondly, by dealing a considerable blow to an already rickety and deeply flawed insitution, namely the EU, it is at least one more step along the path - if not forwards along the path -- to a truly just transnational institution, i.e. one that embodies radical democratic principles and doesn't eat its own as happened with Greece. If the EU has to collapse and a lot of water pass under the bridge before that just institution can come to pass, so be it. I'm more of a reform-mined, work-within-the-system type myself, but there's more than one way to skin a cat.
