Britain and Russia

Both countries will continue to worry about the EU’s collective power. 

As nations on the periphery, they have traditionally feared the rise of a single power dominating the European landmass — which partly explains why they ended up as allies in the Napoleonic wars and the two world wars. 

Each country has built its modern identity around the memory of victory in 1945. 

And both are shaped by nostalgia for imperial power.

Gideon Rachman FT 28 October 2019
