To EU or not EU - postscript

Just one more thing and then I'll stop banging on about this and return to normal service (whatever that is!)

I honestly don't think that the Leave group really needed to campaign at all. Remain showed such a profound misunderstanding of the British psyche that they did the job for them. There is nothing more likely to awake the old WW2 cussedness of the British than continually telling them of the bad things that are going to happen if they don't listen to their elders and betters. It brings out the old "very well then, alone!" spirit. What was desperately needed was a positive vision of the U.K. within a reformed and progressive EU, but that was never likely to be the picture based purely on the miserly reforms offered at the start of this process. Hopefully, this should be a wake-up call to the EU and politicians everywhere.
