The term “profit” seems to me to come from a “completely different” (concretely: the “enlightened rational”) sphere of thought, which, however, cannot understand or justify the phenomenon of Brexit.
In my opinion, the (alp) dream of Brexit becomes much more understandable if one is able to put one’s way back into the magical way of thinking of his childhood, which is predominant until about the age of 5 … :
[1 “In the magical phase, the child can transform into other beings such as fairies, witches or sorcerers in his imagination and creates a space in this as-if-world in which everything is imaginable, everything is possible, including what he or she is in reality does not exist.”
Through such a psychological regression, the (behind) reason for the very “big theater” called Brexit, in its cultural-historical size becomes recognizable and comprehensible … The real point, then, is to restore an apparently lost sense of belonging.But at the same time, this also makes visible the great danger that can be derived from it:
[1 “The danger of morbid magical thinking lies in manipulability and irrationality, which justifies the vulnerability of people with magical thinking.”
If someone ultimately benefited from Brexit (in the sense of the ‘enlightened’ use of meaning of the term), then these are the ones who actually exploit the precisely promoted manipulability and irrationality of the islanders in their favour.Of course, names such as Boris Johnson’s, among others, quickly come to mind.
Rather than “profit”, I would already speak of an “epic failure of British politics since the end of the Second World War”! As the last points of the failure of the whole British “Classe Politique” of the United Kingdom, it must be assessed … : that it not only did not prevent this backward development in pre-civilizational stages of development, but, without need, even actively promoted.And not even just before the ‘hard Brexit’ seems ready to take responsibility for their actions, or something like a duty of protection to their citizens: for neither was Cameron forced by external circumstances to take such a poorly conceived, and poorly prepared and organised to hold a referendum, nor was parliament forced by legislation to recognise the result of this opinion poll.
