When you hear the Brexiteers blaming the EU for this and for that one thing that they never seem to acknowledge is that whatever the EU does, we are a full part of its deliberations and decisions. If the EU isn’t handling the refugee crisis well,for instance, then it is we that aren’t handling the refugee crisis well. The Brexiteers are not big when it comes to offering solutions as to what should be happening. It is easier to blame ‘Brussels’ than to say what you think the British Government should be doing in Brussels. And of course when it comes to practicalities – for example what exactly might happen at the Irish border after a Brexit, their solution is to wave airily and talk of negotiation. But just imagine Ireland in the EU and Northern Ireland outside. That alone is a recipe for mayhem.
