The vote in favour of Brexit has come as a rude shock not only to the EU but to most politicians in Britain as well. It seems even those who had been campaigning for it are dumbstruck now by their success. Why did this happen? Was it the loss of national sovereignty? Or was it the rejection of Tony Blair and Cameron's autocratic rule and their policy of joining the war against terror that turned Imperial Great Britain into a banana republic of US? Or was it due to scare-mongering headlines "migrant crises" and job losses? It seems Britain needs to focus more on home policy than on external warfare.
