But these are actually points that quite a few other member countries are also unhappy with. Rather than trying to defend them at all costs, if the EU was forward looking it might open an EU wide debate over some EU-wide fair and transparent quota system to replace the present no-limits FMOP. That way it wouldn't be perceived as the UK unilaterally engaging in cherry picking.

If they had done that some years ago, the whole Brexit debacle could have been avoided, but sometimes you need a shock to awake from your complacency. Maybe Brexit was that shock but Merkel and Hollande are still in denial.
The EU view is that the Leave vote won because of all the lies that were spread by the Leave campaign; which happens to be an accurate view.
many sources for this but here is a good read.

The only shock for the EU was that so many people believed these lies.
Some here are still spreading the same ones
