Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

And yet these people do nothing - except generate obvious troll and astroturfing posts online.

They barely turn out to events. They don't have street stalls or meetings in significant numbers. A Leave march in London would be lucky to get a few thousand people.

A handful of them own some newspapers - so there's that.

Realistically, an absolute maximum of 25% of the population is anti-EU with any real fervour. That's not a small number, but I would surprised if the percentage of dedicated Remainers wasn't very significantly higher.

We cannot know for sure. Until a still elusive second referendum, of course.

The only things we can establish at this time is that they control the executive, a (relative) majority at the Parliament, and of course the tabloids.

Or ... maybe they don't have the kind of middle class jobs where you can easily get away whenever you feel like it? :)

You know, what studies have been done indicate that they probably do. Certainly as much as Remain do, yet remain can get reasonably large protests a couple of times a year.
