The Henry Jackson Society study – Audit of Geopolitical Capability – scored the UK high in ‘geographic integration’, ‘demographic leverage’ and ‘cultural prestige’.
Dr. Alan Mendoza who is the Executive Director of the Henry Jackson Society said: “For all the doom and gloom surrounding the implications of Brexit, the reality shines through that the UK remains a leading global power nation, with immense soft and hard power capabilities. The lesson of this report is clear: our future is what we choose to make of it”.
Meanwhile the author of the report and Director of the Global Britain Programme, James Rogers, says that: “After Brexit, some are worried that the UK is about to begin a period of economic and geopolitical decline. But what this audit makes clear is that far from beginning the Brexit process from a position of weakness, the UK is in a remarkably strong position.
“When you analyse data regarding British military strength, technological prowess and cultural prestige, the UK is second only to the United States in its capabilities. Even in relation to economic or diplomatic capacity, it is consistently in the top five countries.”
Britain is a great country with Brexit allowing global trade deals to be forged and a world of opportunity to be opened up.
