Britons voting in the referendum to leave the EU should be reminded that leaving the EU does not mean leaving Europe –which will remain in the same geographic location it’s always been -- nor even that Britain will or needs to leave men of the existing European political insitutions that other European nations either do or do not belong to.
For instance, Britain is already outside both the monetary union and Schengen agreement on free travel (making the Brexit vote nothing at all about immigration), while countries both inside and outside the EU are outside and inside both.
It’s a complicated old arrangement.
