Sure, it ill behoves us Europeans to be smug spectators of British political and societal woes that keep the sceptered isle snagged in political and international travel gridlock. It’s not as if the Dutch for example do better, with Amsterdam airport having an ongoing series of coronary episodes this summer. Or the Italians, who’re once again flirting with fascism. Yet, the British do such dramas so much better than us continentals. The lies are more absurd, the plots more convincing and the acting, as always superb. Because the main characters of the moment, Liz Truss and Rishi Sunak, surely cannot be real?
