    Switzerland, and the Scandanavian countries are arguable the best countries in Europe, and they aren't in the EU. Meanwhile, countries like France which are in the EU are going to crap

    So what? Does leaving magically make us like these countries, assuming that your assumption is consistent with everyone else's views?

    They still have deals with the EU, are members of the EEA, and, most likely, so will UK

    Only one of the scandinavian countries isn't in the EU and it effectively follows all EU law. Britain is not comparable to Switzerland or Norway, if anything the most similar nations are Germany and France.

    Also now we're leaving the EU it is much more likely that we will become less like these countries if we allow the right wing to take control.

    France might be "going to crap" but its above us now.

    Just to note that these countries never joined the EU and did not come to depend on it. Also that they are part of the EEA which still allows the free movement of people which was principally what UK citizens voted against with this referendum.
