On the one hand, British Prime Minister David Cameron has obtained much from EU Council President Donald Tusk. On the other hand, the UK didn’t get anything meaningful and both Cameron and the EU have together played roles whose masks will come off when the no will have prevented the Brexit in the end. The proliferation, strengthened by social media in recent years, of two opposite viewpoints illustrates the deep malaise that is crippling the EU.
When one says it won, the next one says it lost actually. Within a same camp, there is similar deep divide. Within the pro-EU side, there are people who affirmed Cameron and Tusk saved the UK’s membership to the EU. Conversely, there are people who took Tusk’s proposal as unacceptable concessions in front of Cameron’s stubbornness. Worse, there’s now fear that the Cameron-Tusk entente might have caught the EU up in likely bidding wars. Meanwhile, the more confusion, the more support in favor of Brexit.
