This ignores the tremendous ongoing problems the EU is having over immigration. Each new surge of immigration into Spain, Greece, and Italy, each threat from Turkey to reopen the spigot, and each new Calais jungle, underscores the point that the issue is not resolved. The eastern third of the EU doesn’t want to be forced to take in any immigrants. The harsh sanctions and threats against Hungary, Poland, and others may or may not succeed in getting countries to take their quotas, but they are definitely an object lesson on why Brexit is not such a bad idea. The EU failure to solve the immigration crisis may well strengthen support for Brexit, whatever the British demographics.
