Let me count the ways in which European countries need each other. The relatively small and shrinking economies, compared to rising stars in other parts of the world, face a number of challenges unprecedented in depth, breadth and height. Yet, the EU, the most effective mechanism for them to cooperate on meeting most of these challenges, is straining at the seams, with Brexit having exacerbated previously existing contradictions. The UK, in the meantime, did not have to wait long after Brexit to experience the kind of international buffeting that the EU used to shield it from, having been caught between China and the US with the Huawei 5G controversy.
