I would have voted in but am a tad sympathetic politically. Remember one thing : the UK never wanted a regulated federation EU superstate which a while back was a French-German fantasy about putting those countries at the heart of Europe. 40 years ago they wanted to join a economic community which was an extension of an original customs union.
