Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Three problems:

  1. The EU is a rules based constructed based on a number of Treaties which were difficult to get passed and now almost impossible to change. There is no provision within the Treaties for the sort of trial Brexit you propose.

  2. If it were that easy to get in or out, everybody would be doing it and the EU would be in a constant state of turmoil. One Brexit has been bad enough!

  3. The disadvantages of Brexit are long term and may not be self evident to many (who have been relatively less effect) after one year.

Other than that, not a bad idea!
