So why didn't the millions who didn't like the EU leave rather than bring this mess on us?
To live in your own country and to be ruled by your own parliament with no oversight from one in a foreign country is quite a reasonable thing to want. It is how most countries operate. People who want this but don't have it cannot get it by leaving their own country. People who prefer being ruled by a foreign parliament can live anywhere but their own country, or if they live in the EU they can live in their own country too. For British people in this category their choice is soon to be reduced by one country, the UK. They will still have the choice of all the other countries in the world, or only all other EU countries if they insist that they are ruled by the EU parliament.
