Nigel Farage, UKIP and EU Membership
At this time nationalism is not a strong force enough.. but regional elite interests clearly emerge -- regional in the case of EU may be old nation states and thus a reflection of nationalism in a way, this is a moot point.

What is not a moot point:

UK staying in the EU contradicts economic interests of others, in particular of Germany. So Brexit is a done deal no matter what May May do.
(Merkel is not a mental giant .. but comparing to May she sure knows how to run a household!)

Brexit is really not that interesting anymore.

We have new fault lines emerging : Germany vs France and Italy vs France.
(and an old one : Eastern Europe vs the Core -- EE countries want the UK to stay, need British contribution to the budget.... but this is a minor thing, Poles do not have enough weight, and the others do not have any weight at all.)

Somehow I think these are not the last ones.
