“EU leaders must adopt a wartime mindset in their communication and actions”
“EU leaders must accelerate the greening of our energy and food systems”.
“EU leaders must collaborate and ensure solidarity across borders and society”.

Biden’s fluffed it in Ukraine, Macron’s losing across Africa, both nations are disintegrating internally. Britain’s also in the wilderness adrift strategically between US empire and EU empire. After the Russia-Africa Summit, the UK decided to “intensify its engagement” with Africa. Foreign Sec, James Cleverly emphasised that London is “ready to seriously consider any requests from African leaders regarding capacity building and training in the British armed forces.” British troops can “export the professionalism” to the African continent claiming that Russia and China have allegedly made “superficially attractive offers”.
