The whole of the EU deserves to fail due to its fundamental problems.....

From what I can discern from news reports and interviews, I think it failed because of the wars in the ME. The spill over of refugees and immigrants have people scared. These set of refugees are frightening because of their zealous and violent religions, hundreds of different sects. There is no hope of unity.
British Politician Nigel Farage Credits Pompous Obama For Helping Brexit Succeed…
Appearing on Breitbart Radio Nigel Farage tells Stephen K. Bannon that President Obama’s visit to the UK (telling the people to vote Remain) offended a lot of British and backfired on the Remain campaign:
“Threatening people too much actually insults their intelligence and the lesson from the Obama visit is even more fascinating”.
“Here’s the most powerful man in the world coming from a country that we’ve always had a huge high regard for … and a lot of people in Britain said, ‘How dare the American president come here and tell us what to do?’ And it backfired and I think we got an Obama Brexit bounce because people do not want foreign leaders telling them how to think and how to vote.”

Possibly worth considering that there are 64.1 million people who reside in the United Kingdom. Not all of us were born with a silver spoon stuck where the Sun dont shine. Those fundamental problems of which you speak are caused by less than 1% of the population, the bankers, the politicians, the 1%er scum are responsible for the state of the nation. Also possibly worth keeping in mind that part of Europe or not, if Britain fails, then the rest of the first world nations will fall like a stack of dominoes.

Britain's vote to leave the EU sends out a clear signal. The majority of the British people reject the EU and all it stands for, and now passes the baton on to other European EU member countries to seek their own referendums, and to look at their own issue on sovereignty and national identity.
We can trade and buy and sell to each other, but it should not lead to the dissolution of an ounce of sovereignty, nor the disappearance of national identity, or the ripping up of a country's pages of history. Sovereignty should never be up for debate, or on the table to bargained away. A nation's power should always, without exception, remain firmly in the hands of the people. Anyone willing to cede that power away is a traitor to their country.
