  • Coronavirus: Britain on the brink

    Nick Witney - 20 March 2020

    Britain’s Brexiteer government may be relearning the value of expertise – if only slowly.


    Britain sets sail – into the dark

    Nick Witney - 06 February 2020

    The odds that the UK and the EU will reach full, or even much, agreement within the breakneck timetable imposed by London do not look good.

    Brexit eve: The slow burn begins

    Nick Witney - 30 January 2020

    Democratic backsliding and constitutional crises could await if the wheels come off Boris Johnson’s Brexit bandwagon.

    Iran-US: Preventing a Collision Course

    ECFR, in partnership with the Friedrich-Ebert-Foundation (FES), invited to a discussion on “Iran-US: Preventing a Collision Course” on 21 January.
    Following a series of attacks in Iraq that culminated in the assassination of Qassem Soleimani and missile attacks against airbases hosting the U.S. military, Iran and the United States have reached a peak of military escalation under the Trump administration.

    A hard Brexit looms

    Nick Witney - 21 October 2019

    Prime Minister Boris Johnson seems to have the momentum to get his Brexit deal over the line – and to follow up with a general election triumph while the electorate are still sighing with relief.

    There’s only one way to “just get it done”

    Nick Witney - 07 October 2019

    The UK’s European partners should grant it another extension in the Brexit negotiations. The horror show of the last three years has deflated much of the public’s belief in British exceptionalism.
