New York Times: Britain, Time to Let Go of the ‘Anglosphere’

Michael Kenny and Nick Pearce wrote an opinion piece in the New York Times on the need to drop the dream of the ‘Anglosphere’.

They wrote: “Now, as the British government grapples with the fraught policy questions that leaving the union raises, the Anglosphere is a balm for those same Euroskeptics, who argue that Britain should just strike out on its own and make its own trade deals with some of the world’s leading economies, including the United States, Australia and New Zealand, as well as rising Asian powers like India.

But has the idea of the Anglosphere ever actually existed outside of the imaginations of British politicians?”

Professor Kenny is Director of the Bennett Insitute. Professor Pearce is Director of The Institute for Policy Research (IPR) at the University of Bath.
