Is this vast majority all seeing “the kings new clothes”? Or is there something else wrong with them.

Please, I beg you, not to repeat the same old lyrics from the Brexit song sheet, as I (along with many others) are in need of a new “enlightenment”.

Thank you.
I don't think the Brexit voters see anything specifically different than people in other member countries. They were asked and they gave their answer simple as that. They wanted those in power to listen.

Exactly the same as happened in the USA with the election of Trump.

It would be very interesting to see how the electorate of other EU countries would vote if asked the same question.

Most governments are afraid to ask. The EU do everything they can to avoid any treaty changes that would force member countries to go to their electorate.
