Yes, the underlying reasons for unhappiness are economic in most cases and for many the Brexit vote was a protest. The xenophobia is the reaction of many, driven on by odious organs such as Nigel Farage and the Daily Mail, that put the blame on the EU and/or foreigners in general.

As for the EU running the country that is bollocks. Many of the less palatable EU directives, such as the telecoms data retention one, originated from the UK commissioners.
