Britain and Ukraine

The British approach to Ukraine reminds me of Enoch Powell's speech in which he said that Britain had become "a nation with a split personality, rent between illusion and reality, withdrawing ever and again like the schizophrenic into a dream existence peculiar to ourselves.
Under God's good Providence and in partnership with the United States, we keep the peace of the world and rush hither and thither containing Communism, putting out brush fires and coping with subversion.   It is difficult to describe, without using terms derived from psychiatry, a notion having so few points of contact with reality".
