After the departure of Boris Johnson, Britain will be headed by another conservative prime minister who did not want the United Kingdom to leave the European Union.

“I don’t want my daughters to grow up in a world where they need a visa or a permit to work in Europe,” she argued against leaving the EU. “Every parent wants their children to grow up in a healthy environment with clean water, clean air, and the wonders of nature. Being in the Union helps to protect the environment and its treasures,” Liz Trussová defended Europe a few years ago.

But where are last year’s snows? The current foreign minister in the government of outgoing Prime Minister Boris Johnson has long since taken back her opposition to Brexit. Simply because, according to her, disasters did not occur and independence from the EU allegedly gave Britain new opportunities. The truth is that when it comes to environmental protection and the Green Deal, London is far greener than the whole of Brussels. The economic disaster did not occur also because it was possible to conclude a decent trade agreement with the EU. Both covid and Ukraine have shown the advantages of a quick response by one country over the slower, if perhaps better thought out, steps of the twenty-seven-member EU.

But the British, as well as the European, autumn will be about coping with the winter without Russian gas supplies. Liz Truss has the chance to take Britain through winter more easily than much of Europe will. Britain stopped having illusions about Russia much earlier than Germany and other countries of continental Europe. What Berlin and we are experiencing today, Britain already went through in 2018. That is why today it is not surprised and is better prepared. The Union is undergoing a fundamental test of its existence in the gas crisis, partly because it has not listened to London much. If he doesn’t manage it, he will prove right to those who say Brexit was good.
