How Britain Lost Its Cool

Posted by hkarner - 6. Oktober 2017

Mark Leonard is Director of the European Council on Foreign Relations.

In the past 20 years, the UK and Germany have switched positions, with the latter now representing openness while the former has come to embody backward-looking nationalism. But there is no reason to believe that the two countries won’t swap places again.
