I don't pretend to have firm opinions about European political affairs, but it seems to me that this writer untangled some of the confusion about the attitudes of Britishers regarding the Brexit issue. In a nutshell voters were motivated by mainly two concerns 1) class politics combined with opposition to the anti-democratic European Union versus 2) what is essentially identity politics in relationship to the hordes of migrants swarming all over Europe to escape the trauma of living in the war zone of Syria and Iraq.
Essays which saw the winning vote motivated by #1 are the following:
