The EU referendum generated a very one-sided debate in many respects. Though both sides oversimplified and exaggerated their arguments, there is the
sense that the Brexit arguments for control
of immigration, removal of Brussels red tape,
and sovereignty over our own country were clearer and better rehearsed. What did not come across very well were the practical benefits of
EU membership which we have come to expect
and perhaps take for granted.
