Anne Deighton has written an article for the New European (19 – 25 August) entitled 'We Are Now Not The Problem Solvers – We Are The Problem'.

In the article, Anne says, “The balance, ethos – and very future – of the EU will be at stake here. At a time when strategic problems are coming thick and fast over the international horizon, how Britain conducts itself will also be of huge significance to the wider international system. Bumbling, seat-of-your-pants British diplomacy could destroy rather than adapt.”
