One of the bizarre notions of the the Brexiteers is that the UK lost it's sovereignty, which is a bit of a joke in itself because clearly the opposite was true. But somehow none of the other 27 felt the same. No it was just the English who have never been invaded since 1066. Never been under the yoke of an occupier because of course they were as often as not the occupier the invader the coloniser. The empire builder.
They feel oppressed having no knowledge of what it's really like to be invaded oppressed and colonised.
Some people might feel a certain schadenfreude.

That's a German word you know,
