A virus is spreading across Europe. In fact, it has been for some time now, exacerbated by the Great Recession and the painfully slow recovery. The U.K. had a chance to fight the virus, maybe even give European leaders a stronger foothold in the fight, so they could say: “We’re in this together.”
But Britain failed.
Now the contagion has strengthened enough to spread unchecked across the EU.
The Brexit vote wasn’t just about the U.K. leaving the EU. All of Europe was closely watching the vote, waiting for it to succeed so that various party leaders would have the green light to start shouting for their own referendum.
