How the Anglosphere philosophy will fuel the new Prime Minister’s foreign policy

first_imgBritish critics of Boris Johnson, rather than dismissing him as a cut-rate Winston Churchill tribute act, would do far better looking at what it is about the great man that so impresses the current Prime Minister.  America in particular remains absolutely central to the UK economy. As a single country, the US is the largest export market for British goods; it is also the largest source of foreign direct investment.  Boris and key aides around him are strong proponents of the Anglosphere concept, a neglected philosophy that sees the informal alliance of the world’s English-speaking powers not as a relic of the UK’s past, but as the key to its future.  Obviously, this very different overall philosophy leads organically to a very different British foreign policy.  John HulsmanDr John C. Hulsman is senior columnist at City A.M., a life member of the Council on Foreign Relations, and president of John C. Hulsman Enterprises. He can be reached for corporate speaking and private briefings at www.chartwellspeakers.com. How the Anglosphere philosophy will fuel the new Prime Minister’s foreign policy It is often important to look at a leader’s idols for clues as to what makes them tick. Economically too, the Anglosphere represents the parts of the world that are actually growing, rather than the sclerotic European Union. India and the US account for two of the fastest-growing, major world economies.  The answer is there for all with eyes to see. While in Australia in 2017, Boris gave an impassioned speech firmly supporting Churchill’s unwavering belief in “the special genius of the English-speaking peoples”. In terms of strategic alliances, in Nato – still the undisputed flagship of western defence – only the US, UK, and France (just about) have full spectrum capabilities, that is, the capacity to engage in every sort of military mission from peace-keeping to war-fighting. As such, the US and the UK dominate the alliance.  whatsapp I myself was involved in the creation of this notion 20 years ago, as it explained to me the reality of much of international relations, and yet was fascinatingly almost never commented upon.  In Asia, the Anglosphere is also alive and well. The Australians, Indians, and Americans make up three members of the nascent “Quad” (the other being Japan), which over time is evolving into the key informal nexus for balancing China.  The Prime Minister’s natural ideological drift away from the hapless EU is likely to affect the Iranian crisis, with the UK adopting joint naval patrols with the US to protect shipping in the vital Strait of Hormuz, despite the usual German non-action.  The new Prime Minister’s Anglosphere philosophy amounts to a radically different foreign policy from the tired old British establishment positions of the past decades – one fit for purpose in the new era we find ourselves in. In terms of intelligence gathering, the “Five Eyes” of the US, UK, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand form the paramount intelligence sharing grouping in the world. Second, while Prime Minister Johnson will continue to welcome new Chinese investment to the UK, there will be significant caveats. He is likely to agree to the White House’s plea that the UK partly exclude Huawei, the Chinese government-dominated high-tech company, from its 5G telecoms market.  In addition, the 2019 Heritage Foundation Index of Economic Freedom makes for some fascinating reading. If Hong Kong is counted as a separate entity, as it is in the exhaustive report, then fully seven of the 10 freest and most open global economies (Hong Kong, Singapore, New Zealand, Australia, Ireland, Canada, and the UAE) are former colonies of an eighth, the UK.  The Anglosphere is vital to understand, as it provides an overall strategic narrative for much that the new Prime Minister is about to attempt to do in terms of Britain’s foreign policy. For all these hard-headed reasons, Boris and other believers in the Anglosphere see it as the future and not the past.  For Prime Minister Johnson definitively sees the world far differently from the tired, discredited British establishment, of which Theresa May was a charter member. ISLE OF WIGHT, UNITED KINGDOM – JUNE 27: Conservative party leadership contender Boris Johnson poses for a photograph in front of a Union Jack on a wall at the Wight Shipyard Company at Venture Quay during a visit to the Isle of Wight on June 27, 2019 on the Isle of Wight, United Kingdom. Boris Johnson and Jeremy Hunt are the remaining candidates in contention for the Conservative Party Leadership and thus Prime Minister of the UK. Results will be announced on July 23rd 2019. (Photo by Dominic Lipinski – WPA Pool/Getty Images) Given the strong Anglosphere advocates in and around the Trump administration, expect Boris to strike fast and cut such a free trade deal with pivotal America in the next couple of years.  Boris will accept the President’s argument that allowing 5G telecoms networks in the UK to be built with a foundation of Huawei hardware and software is an unacceptable national security risk for any Anglosphere nation, endangering the Five Eyes establishment. If it does so, Brexit is a success. If not, then it is a catastrophe.  Share Main image credit: Getty whatsapp Monday 5 August 2019 4:23 am City A.M.’s opinion pages are a place for thought-provoking views and debate. These views are not necessarily shared by City A.M. Third, Boris understands that the key to a successful Brexit is ultimately not primarily about whatever terms the UK laboriously reaches with the EU. Instead, the crucial question is whether, in three to five years, Britain brokers free trade deals with such Anglosphere nations as the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and India.

Song festival hits a high note for NZ in 2024

first_imgSong festival hits a high note for NZ in 2024 New Zealand is set to host a major international festival of song after a government-backed bid won the rights to the 2024 World Choir Games.The Ministers for Arts Culture and Heritage and Economic and Regional Development have congratulated the New Zealand Choral Federation for winning the hosting bid. The bid to international choir organisation Interkultur was backed by $7 million from the government’s Major Events Fund.“The World Choir Games occurs every two years and is the largest international choral festival. Hundreds of choirs and up to 15,000 people are expected to take part,” said Carmel Sepuloni.“Global travel remains disrupted by COVID-19 but it is heartening to be able to plan and look forward to an international festival of song, featuring choirs from more than 50 nations. This event has an international reputation for attracting the world’s best choirs.“We have almost four years to plan for this event. During this time we will continue to seek the best medical and scientific advice about the impact of COVID and border restrictions. Strong public health measures will remain central to making it a success.“It will incorporate locally produced performances, pōwhiri, kapa haka rōpū and taonga pūoro. Waiata Maori and pese Samoa will be on show to an international community that shares our love of singing.“I am proud that the music of Aotearoa will feature prominently. The opening and closing ceremonies will be a unique showcase of the diverse Māori, Pacific and European singing traditions of Aotearoa,” said Ms Sepuloni.“Auckland is set to host the games over eleven days in July 2024 with concert halls, churches and sports and cultural venues used as locations for the major concerts,” said Mr Nash.“Images of full rugby stadiums and crowds of spectators at sporting events have beamed around the world in the past few months to underline our global reputation for eliminating COVID19. Now cultural events like the World Choir Games will further build our reputation as a safe destination.“We are backing the World Choir Games because it will deliver economic, social and cultural benefits for New Zealand and our Pacific neighbours. This is the first time the event has been held in the Oceania region.“As Tourism Minister I am also delighted at the opportunity to promote ‘brand New Zealand’ through this festival, and tell our story as a safe, appealing and friendly nation in key international markets in Europe, Asia, and North America,” said Mr Nash.If the event has to be cancelled or significantly scaled down due to the impacts of COVID19, any uncommitted funding would be returned to the Major Events Fund. /Public Release.

Fiat Chrysler opening Heritage restoration center

COMMENTSSHARE YOUR THOUGHTS Created with Raphaël 2.1.2Created with Raphaël 2.1.2FCA Heritage’s Reloaded by Creators Lancia Fulvia. It seems uncertain but unlikely the company will launch an American arm of the European program, despite the fact some classic Chryslers, Dodges and Plymouths can just as easily as their Italian brethren net six- and sometimes seven-figure price tags.Companies that recently launched an in-house restoration-type heritage preservation program include Lamborghini’s Polo Storico; Aston Martins Works’ Heritage Centre; Porsche’s Classic program; and the Land Rover Experience Center Heritage and Pagani Rinascimento programs, launched September and October 2017, respectively. Trending in Canada Trending Videos The Rolls-Royce Boat Tail may be the most expensive new car ever Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is launching a factory-backed restoration program to help better preserve its history, debuting this week a quintet of recently restored Alfa Romeos and Lancias at the Rétromobile exhibition in Paris.The FCA Heritage-led program, which the company’s named “Reloaded by Creators,” mirrors ones recently launched by premium marques like Jaguar, Land Rover, Lamborghini, Porsche, Aston Martin and Pagani. Its goals will be to buy, restore and then sell iconic classic cars from the company’s many brands; and to acquire particularly rare or important cars to add to the FCA corporate collection.FCA seems for now more focused on preserving its Italianate heritage: the just-restored vehicles bowing in Paris specifically include a 1991 Alfa Spider former factory colour-testing car; a limited-edition 1973 Lancia Fulvia Coupé Montecarlo; a last-of-the-model 1981 Spidereuropa Pininfarina; a prototype 1989 Alfa Romeo SZ; and a Pinninfarina-bodied 1959 Lancia Appia Coupé. Jaguar has recently begun building “continuation cars,” and Mazda has begun restoring and selling parts for vintage Miatas in Japan. In November 2017, Nissan‘s NISMO similarly began reproducing parts for R32 Skylines. center_img See More Videos PlayThe Rolls-Royce Boat Tail may be the most expensive new car everPlay3 common new car problems (and how to prevent them) | Maintenance Advice | Driving.caPlayFinal 5 Minivan Contenders | Driving.caPlay2021 Volvo XC90 Recharge | Ministry of Interior Affairs | Driving.caPlayThe 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning is a new take on Canada’s fave truck | Driving.caPlayBuying a used Toyota Tundra?
