Britain’s longest-standing foreign policy directive is simple: prevent Europe from uniting, as a united Europe could potentially become an existential threat to the UK.

I’m not saying a united Europe would be an existential threat, at least not nowadays, but this ancient idea is still very much alive in the minds of the Brits.

Somebody posted that famous scene from Yes, Minister where they explain why Britain joined the EU in the first place: to make it more divisive.

They had hoped that Brexit would split the EU and were shocked to find them standing firm and united in negotiations, not willing to budge an inch on any free movement of goods or money without equal free movement of people.
