Echte Engländer – Real Englishmen | Britain and Brexit

After the United Kingdom leaves the European Union people and country have to re-position themselves. What defines a real Englishman? And will Britain turn inwards or outwards?

Will the United Kingdom go big and global by trying to establish Empire 2.0? Or will Great Britain shrink to Little England, if Scotland and/or Northern Ireland decide to stay in the European Union in the end? This is not only a greographical question. Team GB must find answers to globalisation and digitalisation like any other country, but by leaving the European Union the UK has the option to also leave EU standards behind and define a bespoke British future. Great Britain can miss the chance to become a modern middle power by lingering over the dreams of the lost glory of the British Empire. The colonial past is awaiting necessary reapparaisal if Britain wants to see globalisation as a chance for cooperation between independent and equal nations worldwide.
