Into a vortex of decline

04 January, 2019

• THE New Year opens under a cloud of economic privation, our mistaken decampment from Europe and the possible eventual dismantlement of its political and financial mechanisms.

This bodes ill for the future prosperity of the continental fraternity. Will it be under the vassalage of the US, a revivalist Russia and the emerging monoliths India and China?

Is Britain going to be sucked into a vortex of decline. Has the Cold War been replaced by international discord? Not much of a prospect for the coming year. Indeed, a forbidding one.
