Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I understand the logic and feelings behind your comments above, but there are two sides to the Brexit equation and I doubt the EU would ever consider letting the UK back in after all that has happened. If you leave, it will be for good, come what may, and post Brexit relations may not even be very close or friendly if it ends up being a no deal Brexit. The UK may not become the North Korea of Europe (Gordon Brown), but it will come to be seen as a Trojan horse for a hostile USA in Europe.

So yes, there may be a crisis of political legitimacy if the UK stays in, but that problem may be more fixable than trying to reverse Brexit once Britain has left...
