Brexit: I don't think there has ever been an overwhelming support for the EU in GB - but I might be wrong there.
Quote:
The EU has been a convenient whipping boy for a weak and incompetent government.
More than that - it's been used for decades as a uniting force within the UK. Whenever there's something really bad going on in domestic politics it's oh so convenient to find a Euro-target that everyone can agree to hate.

Yes Minister always did a great job of summing up what the great unwashed really thought, or rather what they thought they thought, about Europe.
