An Awful Start for UK-EU Relations Post-Brexit; My Piece for Aspenia Online

I have written for Aspenia Online on the politics of resentment that is gripping Brussels and London, as the European Union and the United Kingdom adapt to meaner and leaner post-Brexit relations. The full piece, which includes contribution by all-knowing Brexit guru prof. Anand Menon, is available here.


I touch on the major crises of the past few months - vaccine procurement, Northern Ireland customs border, the diplomatic status of the EU ambassador to the UK - as well as the brewing rows over the 'level playing field' and regulation of financial services.


TL;DR:


The UK and the EU are so invested in mutually incompatible projects – assertion of national sovereignty and supranational integration – that they keep measuring their own success against the other’s failure.
