Just like every conspiracy theory and prejudice based pitch: stating what could have been, then blaming X for getting in the way.

It is impossible to prove the non-existence of a delicious fiction, that’s why they win.
Now apply this to all the favoured Vote Leave memes.

We’ve only lost out on blitz spirited, sunlit, free-trade, wealth boosting, benefit from immigrant ejecting, £350m for NHS gifting, global power regaining, parliamentary power restoring Brexit cos of media and remainder scum
As opposed the the fact all that was made up and sold to people who desperately needed hope, desperately wanted change, or desperately needed a socially acceptable hook on which to hang their prejudice.
And why would any sane organisation aim for what’s currently happening?

Because energy harnessed by Brexit was at risk of being directed at the real cause of most pain: Self-interested wealth accumulation while stripping others of means to stay healthy and thrive
Here’s a wearying profile of OP and how he, like all party machine operators, commoditised this during campaigns
Adherence to the cause is of course not without benefits, even though most of us are appalled at the the moral bankruptcy.

Whether it’s telling folk to ignore the science when assessing COVID-19 risk to their kids. Sending infected elders to kill others in care homes
...or plastering over electoral misconduct cracks. Most have second homes outside the blast radius, peerages to bolster lucrative after dinner gigs, invites to do lots of non-exec directing and lots of other banked favours from friends
Then they retire to their real sunlit uplands and watch what they did to our kids
