This is a good but sometimes over verbose blog
The elite love the EU because they are loyal to their class not their country. It comes from the officer class ideal that has its origins in chivalric orders of the middle ages. Cheval is of course French for horse. Officers generally rode horses and identified with those who rode horses just as they still do today at Royal Ascot and Polo grounds . Their main aim is to keep the plebs subservient. They are terrified of working class revolts.
Hence all the propaganda about Red Clydeside in WWI. They conveniently forget that the thin red line of the Crimean war was the Argylls who recruited in the working class slums of Glasgow.
The working class love their country. The political elite and officer class love their privileges. They know the EU will preserve their status and position.
For the workers, if they want to live, shooting their officers is the best survival strategy but be careful you don't get caught, 11th commandment.
