Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

Nige was (democratically elected) there for a reason: The majority of the UK public does not want to be part of a Federal Europe, and this was the reason people voted to leave.

The UK has tried reform from within and each and every time were told to go whistle. The only reform which ever gets accepted is that of deeper and closer integration. It's pure folly to imagine that this would ever change.
The majority of the UK public couldn't define to you what "federalised" means, so not buying that for a minute as the driving factor behind Brexit. What percentage of Leavers polled mentioned anything about "Federalisation" vs "immigration"? I'd bet more people mentioned bendy bananas than Federalisation!

Has the UK really tried reform, or has it always been one foot in, one foot out, hoping for the best? The UK has actually managed to get some decent concessions from the EU in the past, but I'm afraid we've had such a vocal Euro-sceptic wing for so long that we've never really given it a chance.
