Brexiteers love to present themselves as the long suffering victims of domination by an evil European empire

Makes you think of another group of rulers on the other side of Europe...

TBH, France also has a problem of "no longer being a dominant imperial power", to the irritation of many pf other EU countries - OK, this is also a Macron temperament issue. But, overall, we seem to be getting off it a little faster than our neighbors from across the channel. French language no longer being universal has helped bringing the point home. And of course, Erasmus.
