Imagine a young Margaret Thatcher, a politician who deeply mistrusts the political establishment and identifies on a gut level with the frustrations of the middle class.The European Union is unpopular in Britain for the same reason it is in many other parts of Europe: It's seen as the project of a financial and political elite that often operates without regard for public sentiment.Britain in recent years has seemed to be slipping backward.The most hopeful aspect of the Brexit debate is that most young British people seem to be instinctively European. They have grown up in a global economy where people move from job to job and country to country. Other surveys make the same point: The older people get in Britain, the more they mistrust the EU. It would tie the country's future to the oldest, most conservative cohort of its population.EU purists may still dream of a tighter federalism, but that would involve a surrender of national power that nobody, least of all the Germans or French, really wants.
