May’s future will be hanging in the air. Probably she will resign of her own free will. That said, she will certainly perform her “historic” mission by plunging the country into “a tough Brexit” The decision to postpone until late January the December 11 vote in the House of Commons on the Withdrawal Agreement stipulating the terms of Britain’s exit from the European Union, agreement approved by the EU on November 25, created real ...

The Memes’ World Order

... panned meme culture, denouncing Pepe the Frog as a hate symbol. She was clearly not the candidate of the Internet. When Trump won the 2016 election, it was to the elation of those meme makers who felt like they had a say in defining his image. UK and the Brexit memes The Brexit case is another example of how memes can serve as a marker of people’s reaction to changes in the country. Britain has no standard internet meme symbol for either far-right movement or left movement, but Brexit uncovered a variety ...

Philip Ingram: Using HUMINT in Cyberspace Is Best to Fight Extremists Online

... either to return home with a new identity or to set up terror cells in some European countries. The extent of this infiltration is not known, and that is causing various security agencies a real headache. In your assessment, what are the implications of Brexit in terms of security? Before the referendum, former head of MI6 Richard Dearlove said that “the truth about Brexit from a national security perspective is that the cost to Britain would be low.” Do you agree?

From Post-Modernism to Neo-Modernism

... least in the form it had assumed by the end of the last century, was very short by historical standards. When exactly its decline began is an arguable point. Looking back on past events, some analysts say that 2016 was a watershed year and insist that Brexit and Donald Trump’s victory in the U.S. elections were the “points of no return.” Others believe that the era of post-modernism ended two or three years earlier when the Ukraine crisis broke out and the “Greater Europe” ...

The Mood of Uncertainty in Munich

... continue to carry its burden of the responsible global leadership provided that American partners are committed to a fair burden-sharing. U.S.-European allies welcomed this rhetoric, but appeared to remain concerned. The future of the European Union after Brexit was another elephant in the room; the modalities of Brexit procedure itself was a subject of intense debates between proponents of a “hard Brexit” and supporters of softer approaches to the defecting United Kingdom.

Britain Seeks Closer Links with China in a Post-Brexit World

... friends or enemies, only permanent interests. (The same man in 1841 famously dismissed Hong Kong as “a barren rock”.) It is these “permanent interests” which seem to have triumphed in Sino-British relations after a minor hiccup which followed the Brexit referendum in the summer. Things came to a head in September, 2016 when Jim O'Neill, the UK Treasury minister leading trade talks with China, suddenly resigned from the government in a row over relations with Beijing.
