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.

Brexistentialism for useful innocents

... the populist upheaval that drove a simple majority of Britons to vote to leave the EU. The Telegraph, The Guardian, CNN, Money, and social media say that's what we should believe, and that thet “existential crisis” exists among Brexiteers in Great Britain too.
