Takeaways


  • Both the US and Russia support Brexit – but not for Britain's sake.

Theresa May’s failure to deliver is not that she doesn’t have powerful outside allies.

In fact, Churchill’s key allies – the United States and Russia — currently under the management of Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin — can be counted among the chief advocates of Britain leaving the EU.

Of course, they do so purely for very selfish and/or pure spoiler reasons.

In Trump’s case, it is to negotiate a trade deal with a much-weakened Britain.

In Putin’s case, it is part of a campaign to weaken the EU.
