Is brexit a symptom of such delusion, also?

Probably. Partly. More to do with being an Island race off a large continent. Like Japan, island people tend to be eccentric with an odd attitudes to neighbours.

There has always been an enemy "over there", be it Napoleon, Hitler or Jean Claude Wanker / Brussels.

They can do, that is what both Japan and Germany did after the war. They built from nothing, inward focus, most pulling together.

The stupid feckin British think they are world champions at everything, ego based bullshit "we won the war" the world owes us a living. Us - Workers unite "it is our turn now, lets go and kick the rich bastards".
And when we get world champions a bunch of stupid politicians try to destroy them aka Bradley Wiggins and Mo Farah. Self destruct stupidity among politicians and fawning to certain factions such as press or unions depending on which party.

You will find plenty of people calling Wiggins a cheat.

In order to win their events Wiggins and Farah had to engage in blood / chemical enhancement. Same as Bolt in the 100 metres.

I'm not saying it's a good or bad thing. It's just the way things are.

So, following Theresa May's and Michel Barnier's speeches, I'm a little confused as to what Brexit is for...

We will 'diverge' from EU regulation but voluntarily 'align' with EU regulation...
We will have control of our own fishing waters but enter into reciprocal agreements (that are much the same as now)...
We will have tariff free trade but not completely friction-less...(a small worsening of what we have now)
We hope that the City of London will not take too much of a hit...(likely a slight worsening from what we enjoy now)
We will have control of our own borders but will still need migrant labour at around the same level...(and no system yet in place to manage it)
We will continue to pay £billions per year to the EU for access and agencies, but not have a say in new treaties / policy / regulation...

Of course, these are only opening gambits, but, if I had voted for Brexit I would be asking myself...'what has really changed?'

What do you chaps who did vote for Brexit think?
