    The British have been using the EU as their escape goat for their own failures for 40 years. Every time the local politics or economy tank, the politicians there start rows with the UK and blame them for all their evils, to distract the population from such failures.

    So a total Brexit and more, UK getting out of all international institutions, will be good for them as a tough love measure. The first time things go sour after they have pulled out, they will have no one to escape goat and maybe then they will hard introspect on their actions.

    Don't be so optimistic, they'll be able to blame the EU for many years to come for giving us a bad deal, plus they can always switch to blaming immigrants like Trump, or other bugbears like bankers. And the Tories are still blaming Labour for all their problems 7 years later.

    It's 'scapegoat' by the way.

    Unfortunately the UK has too many negative people who use the internet to megaphone their sad outlook on life. Trolls are keen to capitalise on that. Meanwhile the largely silent majority just get on with it. The election will say it all.

    Ah, I may be negative but I'm right and you know it.
