Uncommon Decency

Oct 12, 2022

The war in Ukraine keeps looming over Europe's geopolitical landscape, with sanctions, energy price caps, and weapons supplies dominating debates at EU Council meetings. Ukraine's recently successful counter-offensive warrants a check-in on the war itself, and what it means for the continent's geopolitical standing as old Europe fades in influence, and new Europe’s voice grows louder. The UK, one of Ukraine’s strongest supporters, elected a new Prime Minister and was plunged into economic crisis almost immediately. Why did Liz Truss and Chancellor Kwasi Kwarteng opt for their economic strategy? Can the Conservatives rebound before the next election? Or will Sir Keir Starmer become the first Labour PM since Gordon Brown? This week Francois Valentin and Julian Graham dove into these topics in-depth.
