Brexiters utopian thinkers?

Out of a splendid blog posting jumps this allegation:

Brexiters are often said to be motivated by utopian enthusiasm, in the word’s doubly pejorative sense: their dream is impossible, and yet (or and so) they have a near-religious belief in its potential to deliver a new society

Why jumped out? Because that is what’s often said of Socialists, n’est-ce pas?
