A strange, through-the-looking-glass type of symmetry is at play in the EU as it slouches towards the end of 2021. It’s a temporal symmetry on the one hand, with the end of this year very much starting to look like the end of last year in terms of new lockdowns and coronavirus restrictions. And there’s a spatial symmetry, with crises spiralling out of control on both the bloc’s eastern and western borders.
