Leave or Remain? It’s the English who hold the whip hand in the coming Brexit vote – and many want out. As the polls tighten, this report tours the UK to get a sense of why the English might want to divorce the EU.
The Leave campaign is tapping into a new-found boldness, pushing for Britain’s ability to strike out on its own as a sovereign state. “We’ve lost the pride to say ‘Hi, I’m English’. I think we’ve lost that pride in who we are”, says pub owner, Simon. Meanwhile the Remain side are pitching to Britons’ economic self-interest. Derek Mead, a farmer and businessman, says “We’re a small island on the edge of Europe with a population of half a billion, which we should be looking at as a customer base”. Yet a big threat to the Remain campaign is a simmering resentment of immigration, causing confusion for millions of Europeans who are unsure what will happen to their right to live and work in Britain.
