Brexit - EU and UK levers in the negotiation

We are modelling various aspects of Brexit, the UK's decision to leave the jurisdiction of the EU political union but to remain a strong friend and ally of all European sovereign nations. In this model we show a grid separated 'by role': the EU and the UK. The levers (advantages useful, disadvantages harmful) that each side have are shown. As you can see, the EU has a lot of power. The UK position during the negotiations that followed the submission of Article 50 was considerably weakened by a change of Conservative Party leadership. 

Note the use of 'insufficiently useful' to denote the relatively inconclusive referendum result. 

This, and all other Brexit models in this blog, were drawn up during the final stages of negotiation as both sides started to come to terms with the reality of the situation.
