    Can A Progressive Alliance Ever Win In The UK?

    At the last general election, just under 15m people voted for parties on the right that wanted to “get Brexit done,” while almost 17m people voted for parties on the left and centre that wanted it stopped. Yet, as we all know, we ended up with a House of Commons with a big pro-Brexit majority. How come?

    The Other Britain Waiting to Surface

    Boris Johnson ignores the old truth that blaming scapegoats is one way to a run a campaign but no way to run a country. While this lasts, the flame of rational, outward-looking patriotism must be kept alight by Britain’s civil society.

    The Hollowness of Global Britain

    Illusions about the UK’s special relationship with the United States and a supposedly painless Brexit have been shed. The inability of Boris Johnson’s government to face up to that makes it impossible to define a new role for Britain in the world.

    The Price of Britain’s Megaphone Diplomacy With the EU

    The coming months may well see more bitterness and friction in UK-EU relations. These tensions threaten to unravel the fragile 1998 Good Friday Agreement, which has largely kept violence at bay in Northern Ireland.

    Britain’s Post-Brexit Ambitions Will Be Modest, Not Global

    Brexit Britain is discovering that its influence and ability to tackle global challenges have diminished. As reality sinks in, it could change the way Britain thinks and acts—very possibly for the better.

    The UK and the EU Are Dancing for a Relationship

    The loud boasts of defiance by the British government toward the EU have given way to the quieter language of negotiation. The outcome will determine just how much post-Brexit sovereignty London will have.

    Brexit and the Gradual Disintegration of the United Kingdom

    Brexit may well contribute to the breaking up of the United Kingdom. Only a brave gambler would bet on both Scotland and Northern Ireland still belonging to the UK in 2040.

    Britain and the EU Finally Approach the Reckoning

    Level playing field or no access to the EU’s single market? With Brexit talks in the final stages, one solution for a UK-EU trade deal seems within reach—but only if it allows for both sides to claim victory.

    U.S. Election: If Biden Wins, We’ll Know on the Night

    Ignore the scares. Unless the polls are badly wrong, a victory for Democratic candidate Joe Biden will be known on election night.

    Brexit and the Dismal Reality of “Take Back Control”

    The UK’s economic relationship with the EU will change profoundly. Instead of open trade, Britain is heading for a hard Brexit that will have dire consequences for its economy and role as a trading nation.
