Britons have accused the EU of being anti-British after becoming enraged by recent European Parliament comments.
MEPs suggested they could have secured the vote for Remain if they campaigned to warn “often misled” supporters of the risk of Brexit, a report on the Article 50 process said.
It stated: “British citizens had scant knowledge about the European Union and were not adequately informed about the far-reaching consequences of the decision to leave the union.”
“Citizens were never given a clear picture of the relationship that their country would have with the EU once it left, and were often misled about the implications of the withdrawal, especially as regards Northern Ireland.”
