False, in terms of the exit process at least.. Following a leave vote, Article 50 will be triggered, signalling a 2 year period of exit negotiations. If a deal is agreed in these 2 years, the departing state leaves on those terms. If no agreement is made within the 2 years, the departing nation automatically exits the EU unless the member nations vote unanimously to extend the window. During the 2 year period, all EU laws affecting the UK continue to apply, meaning we essentially remain members until negotiations are completed or we exit automatically.
