Also, you say the EPP will gradually lose its grip, but what if the Brexit example will embolden the fascists and lead to election victories from Le Pen to Jobbik, and could quickly reduce the EU to less than the original six.
Meanwhile, what strikes me most about this Brexit campaign "debate" is that the average citizens supporting Leave show even stronger cognitive dissonance than British Europhobes usually do. Apparently the top concerns are immigration and the NHS, whereas Brexit would not stop immigration (in fact, the politicians who would benefit from a Leave vote would increase non-EU immigration!) and give a free hand to the Tories ad UKIP to wreck the NHS. Add to that that Northerners blame the EU for the decline of their regions, which is actually due to the undue economic weight of the City (Jérôme's "English Disease") and Tory and Bliarite policies.
One whose delusions are out of fashion.
