Brexit: whether to restore the full self-government of this nation, or to continue living under a higher supranational regime, ruled by a European Council

Stripped of distractions, it comes down to an elemental choice: whether to restore the full self-government of this nation, or to continue living under a higher supranational regime, ruled by a European Council that we do not elect in any meaningful sense, and that the British people can never remove, even when it persists in error.

My Europhile Greek friend Yanis Varoufakis and I both agree on one central point, that today's EU is a deformed halfway house that nobody ever wanted. 

His solution is a great leap forward towards a United States of Europe with a genuine parliament holding an elected president to account. 

I do not think this is remotely possible, or would be desirable if it were, but it is not on offer anyway.
