Dead End Road of Global Britain

23-07-2019

Finally, Boris Johnson's dream came through. Today 160.000 Conservatives voted him into the job he dreamed about well before the ongoing Brexit tragedy. Just remember. When David Cameron in 2013 assumed that a referendum on EU membership could keep him in office, it was Boris Johnson who started the campaign for Brexit in order to win the leedership of the Party and 10 Downing Street. He arrived there today as the second non-elected Prime Minister, with no other agenda than a few obsolete illusions. 

Attached article by Philip Stephens in the Financial Times  sums it up. As the new Prime Minister he has no vision, no strategy not even for decently completing Brexit that brought him to office.

Does today`s student or scholar still know who Robert Schuman, Konrad Adenauer, Alcide de Gasperi or Willem Beyen were and what they stood for?

The Illusions of Detente

Footprints of the 20th Century - Third Edition

Description

Since 1989, we refer to the whole post-war period as the “Cold War Era”. Such was not the case in 1968. At the time, the Cold War – in our perception – was behind us. We no longer felt to be in the midst of it. Europeans on the Western side of the Iron Curtain0 felt relatively at ease with Europe’s division. The era of Détente as we called it, was0 considered to be a fairly stable and long-lasting political condition, even after Soviet tanks crushed Dubcek’s socialism with a human face in Pragu
