then are people seriously suggesting that everything was rosy in the world of established Republican / Democrat or cross-mainstream party consensus on membership of the EU?
If not, then what would be the tipping point? I only ask as it seems that established left liberal opinion seems to be four-square behind the everything rosy viewpoint.
I feel some ‘warts and all’ support for anti-Brexit views would be a tad helpful, as the numerous Daily Mash et al attacks are somewhat perplexing. ‘Well known satirical website voices support for largely unelected distant bureaucracy’ might not have gone down so well.
Fact is, there was no widespread great love for the EU, pre-referendum. I, for one, find its subsequent adoration utterly bizarre.
