Brexit end game

As the UK approaches regaining independence from the European Union it is worth remembering that in a democratic referendum, the voting population rejected being a member of an ever burgeoning political confederation of European states.
When the UK joined the European Communities in 1973, the country was joining a 'common market', a sensible attempt to free the continent from tariffs and duties and thereby promoting trade. I suggest that a majority of the voters would have opted to stay in such an arrangement even if it did seem to favour the German automotive industry and the fishing fleets of almost every other European country.
