Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Au contraire: it is a central piece of the Brexiters strategy (to the extent they have one), as it allows to deflect the blame away from them and squarely at the nasty foreigners, so that Boris & Co can keep their jobs and wrap themselves into the Churchill mantel (cue in the Darkest Hour).

Nationalism is a well known lever to manipulate opinion and it has worked particularly well in England these past years.
