There are real bridges and psychological bridges. I was interested to read Boris Johnson wants to build a bridge to France and the irony is not lost. Actually vile irony would be a better description.
The bridge building between societies that Europe so desperately needed, has been shocked and beaten by Brexit and, if the European Union is a system of control , so is every government. Control is what government is for and about in our world because those at the top need to control. No one has ever tried a society where everyone is allowed to be their creative selves, wherever that creativity takes them. No one knows what that kind of society would look like.
Now the architect of division wants areal bridge between two countries with a fractured relationship. I don’t quite know where Boris left his intellect. Somewhere on the desk where he write two articles, one pro and one anti Brexit, his honesty died.
