Leading from the left

by Harry Blaney

The Guardian, November 2017 | Letter

As an observer of European politics, I found the summary of the need for a realignment of the moderate left in Europe by Denis MacShane ('What Gordon Brown could learn from this old communist', Comment, last week) to be a necessary call for a rebuilding of a withered 'liberal' politics - in the American sense - throughout the EU...

Harry Blaney: Letter to the Editor

by Harry Blaney

The Sunday Times, October 2017 | Letter

Brexit will in time erase any real influence by Britain over events in Europe and in America. This self-isolation and disengagement will have a negative impact on the UK’s security, economy and global standing. Many from the EU nations died side by side with Britons and Americans in the Second World War to bring about a Europe that is united, democratic and at peace... Read More »

by Harry Blaney

The Washington Post, April 2017 |

In his April 19 op-ed, “From Truman to Trump,” David Ignatius unconvincingly argued that President Trump should emulate the qualities of President Harry S. Truman. Mr. Ignatius argued that Mr. Trump’s flip-flops in foreign policy and national security suggest he has “shown a flexibility and pragmatism” and cited China, Russia and its president, Vladi­mir Putin , and what Mr. Ignatius called “mundane issues, such as the Export-Import Bank.”...

Letters to the Editor: A Grave Mistake

by Harry Blaney

The Times, April 2017 |

The simple fact is that Britain has greatly benefited from its membership of the EU, not least in having a strong voice in European decision-making that now will be absent (“This is no friendly divorce, but a long, bitter schism”, Niall Ferguson, Comment, last week). The cost, in my opinion as a former US diplomat who served in EU and Nato missions, will be considerable... Read More »

ES Views: Britain is now weaker in a time of global instability

by Harry Blaney

Evening Standard, March 2017 |

In short, Brexit hurts Britain’s influence, not just in Europe but across the world.
