If this is representative of how Europe sees us now then I find this depressing. Having allies that trust each other is so important when we have common enemies. Looking on the bright side, I suppose it's good news that we're still ahead of Russia...

I don't know how I will ever get over it.

As far as breaking apart Europe, you'd think Germany wouldn't have the gall to moan about our little ref. Relative to what they did, we're saints.

I think its hilarious.
Which country caused the world wars?
Which country rebuilt said country?
Which country has hundreds if not thousands of nuclear weapons aimed at it?
Nice one Germany.

The UK and Germany are like two sober people carrying an enormous staggering drunk down the road.
The UK has just said "Sod this for a game of soldiers" and is walking away.
It would be amazing if they didn't trust us less.

I would imagine this mistrust may stem from Brexit, the leadership contest, splits and backstabbing in the ruling Conservative party and the general uncertainty that, let's face it, even we in the UK feel.

Brexit, for example, is causing share prices, and therefore pensions, to fluctuate (I work in the pensions sector and hear it from policyholders).

When Brexit happens and everything calms down a bit, we may see a more clarity. The Germans in general (we have relatives there) really like us as people and admire us as a country, so I am hoping for better things in the future. However they really, really believe in Europe and we don't seem to think we need Europe. This gulf in ideology is probably making them question us a bit, despite their fondness for us.

Stuff made up by some operative in an office and in front of a PC, possibly with a degree in Political Science or something equally useful. The NYT had this week a piece on how the Republicans are much farther to the right than the Brexit party and LePen's movement, pie charts and all the rest. It's all a load of airy-fairy stuff designed to lead people into 'thinking' the way intended by the authors, I bet in most cases these things are 100% made up. Personally, i can't even be bothered to look at it twice because it doesn't matter to anything at all.

I'm pleasantly surprised at 37%. I thought it would be a lot lower given we have the worst Prime Minister ever.
