Have you noticed how the UK is being ignored in world affairs? Our membership of the EU gave us an influence we expected but didn’t deserve. We have now realised our actual level. We’ve thrown away our influence in the world for the cause of vacuous patriotism.
I think the EU will adapt in positive ways following the invasion of Ukraine by Russia. Countries on the edge are warming to it. In an increasingly interdependent world, it’s a tragedy that the UK gave away its place at the table, thereby losing power and influence to formulate policies. The sooner we rejoin the better!
