Here's what I think. Brussels speaks for the whole continent with the self-importance of a proto-unitary state, even when the economic impact of its actions is spread unevenly. Beneath the arrogance lies hypocrisy. The US puts a tax of 2.5 per cent on imported cars. The EU's tariff is 10 per cent. The EU cannot learn from its mistakes. Treating EU citizens with contempt drives them into the arms of Eurosceptics. Instead, the elites have reacted to the British revolt with a mix of stubbornness and masochism. Stubbornness in their refusal to give ground in the Brexit negotiations. Masochism because these displays of arrogance will ultimately hurt the EU itself.

The EU is a confederacy of diverse nations whose interests are in such competition with each other it would require the diplomacy of a Talleyrand or a Kissinger to hold things together. Instead, the EU has Mr Juncker.
