Just about every Liberal blogger who's ever existed has at one point made the same stunning point: most Conservatives like the US even while opposing the EU so they must be hypocrites because they don’t conform to the Left’s own stupid stereotype of Little Englanders ranting about bleedin’ foreigners

Apparently, the nuanced ones can’t handle the idea that British Conservatives may hold different views on these two entities by virtue of their differing natures. If you want to know how different, consider the contrasting uses of surveillance technology. Liberals have regular tantrums about the way US technology allows them to spy on other countries (see here for an example). The EU is above all that. They’ll still build the surveillance network, but they use it to monitor the real enemy: their own citizens.
