The article seems to conflate incompetent leadership and seeking sovereignty... they are very different things in my eyes.

Backstory.

David Cameron's government decided to have a referendum on Brexit to shore up their majority believing there would be no referendum.

Russian money backed a misinformation campaign that was enough to convince a majority it was a good idea so it passed.

Same money pushed misinformation that achieved a leave vote.

It was never about seeking sovereignty.

Of course, if it was up to the Guardian, the UK would be a Maoist utopia.
