@APHClarkson I agree it’s stagnating, but Brexit would be an enormous shot in the arm. It’s not difficult to fast forward a year from now with Trump re-elected and the picture would be quite different. 1/2

Andrew Beatty

@APHClarkson I think the first point is absolutely right. The temptation of short-termism is particularly acute for the French. But even short term it’s naive to think Brexit Britain would be benign and passive. You would have an emboldened anti-EU govt, as the axis of illiberal govs grows.
