Actually, I loathe big government but I believe in the EU for these reasons:You’re right there’s never been any regurgitations from the remainers.
It’s been very much we respect the vote, we think you’re wrong but that’s how democracy works.
But of course in reality the most vociferous supporters of the EU find large government appealing, so the EU is really great in that regard as it fits in with their authoritarian world view.
And of course a dislike of the proles.
1) The days of a small nation state are over, killed by globalisation.
2) Trade needs less barriers, not more
3) Being part of a large labour pool encourages innovation, wealth creation and growth.
4) A unified set of quality/safety standards makes things easier and safer for all.
If we could cancel Brexit I'd move to change how we interact with the EU
1) Make MEPs directly relateable to constituencies and therefore closer to the electorate. This requires reform within the EU but after the shock they've been through I think they'll be amenable to constructive change. I'd rather see 650 MEPs and 73 MPs in Westminster (do away with the Welsh and Scottish sub-sub-levels)
2) Look to become the driver of the EU. After all, if you don't like the way it is going, take control. A UK at the heart of European decision-making is the best way to see our language and values dominate.
