This story which I posted in 2016, a week before the Brexit referendum, shows how much being in the EU corrupts a sense of nationhood

My British Remainer friend at dinner last night made various arguments for staying in the EU, such as all reputable economists think we should (certainly not true), and then said he thought nationals of other EU countries who live in the UK should have had a vote in the referendum. 

This was like the thirteenth stroke of the clock, that not only was not convincing in itself but cast doubt on the other twelve. 

I don't think he gets the idea of nationhood.
