May 24 '19 at 14:03 comment added Vorsprung You are referring to the recent rounds of votes? That's a different situation to before the referendum. The recent rounds of votes could have actually kicked the UK out of the EU and the cosy trade arrangements. Anyone that did this would be blamed. Some commentaries were saying things like "make the Tories unelectable for a generation". Back in 2016 it was a very different game. The bizarre fantasies of the leave campaign didn't come from zero - Tories believed a lot of the contradictory things they said
May 24 '19 at 13:54 comment added 52d6c6af But only ~130 of the Tories voted to Leave, with many of these being very soft Leavers. Did this minority pose enough of a strategic threat to the party enough to offer the referendum?

May 24 '19 at 13:50 comment added Vorsprung The ultra nationalist tendencies of the Tories have always been there. They don't like French technocrats running things. They think the ruling class of England should run everything. They aren't bothered if the economy is utterly destroyed. Cameron was prepared to take the risk of losing the referendum because it's was just a game to him
