"French and Spanish radio broadcast daily press reviews covering major European and non-European newspapers. I do not know of any British station which does the same. The power of English as a language is in danger of turning native English speakers into provincials - and Britain's progressive detachment from the EU is perhaps a reflection of such provincialism."
By Manofiona on Why we need German thinking



"What is termed 'insouciance' on Greece could simply be the US and Asia not focusing on Greece, or Europe. I have noticed in 30 years of global travel and having lived in both Europe and the US that the European markets, players, and commentators speak and behave in a very insular fashion while Tokyo and New York take a more global perspective."
