The victory of supporters of Brexit is a massive defeat for the European project.
Until today were many who thought the UK was the quintessential country had managed to combine the European project with their national identity, while maintaining its currency, its borders, parliamentary sovereignty and foreign policy.
From this unique position forged by many prime ministers within the EU, London has managed to be one of the most influential, and increasingly independent countries. If anyone has been able to play and win both European and global board, is the United Kingdom.

No doubt. If this were true, the European Union would be revealed as a British historian Alan Milward said precisely not a federalist integration project, but as a tool for the rescue of the failures of Europe after the Second World War nation-states world.
What will happen now?
It is somewhat paradoxical that the confidence they have shown a majority of Britons to vote for leaving the European Union is symmetrical to the gloom that caused in the rest of Europe and the enthusiasm among Europhobes, which will celebrate and want imitate.
After the British vote, the EU seems today to the UK 1973: lost and disoriented, overwhelmed by events, without a clear plan of future. After years of bailouts member states hit by the crisis, it is urgent to rescue the European project.
