Britain Alone. The Path from Suez to Brexit

The EU specialist José Ignacio Torreblanca in conversation with the FT’s chief political commentator Philip Stephens (in English)


An attempt to put recent events into the broader context of Britain’s often tortured search for its place in the world since 1945, a story of exalted ambition and straitened circumstance. Stephens’ widely praised  new book begins with the words of a (British)civil servant who warned at the close of the 1940s that Britain was a great nation but had to stop pretending it was  a great power. It ends, post-Brexit, with an assessment of Boris Johnson’s vaulting vision of something called “Global Britain”.

Latin America has a long and proud footballing history dating back to the late nineteenth century. The region is home to several of the world’s biggest clubs, as well as countless global superstar footballers. However, in recent years Latin American football has been tarnished by financial impropriety, mismanagement, and accusations of corruption. Moreover, despite the enormous popularity of football in the region, in business terms it is still worth only a fraction of the turnover of the Big 5 Leagues in Western Europe, and there is a continuous drain of players to Europe and Asia.

 

Since the ‘FIFAGate’ scandal of 2015, in which many senior figures from Latin American clubs and football associations were implicated, there has been some progress towards reform, and in some national federations, leagues, and clubs some very clear signs of much more professional business management. However, the near shutdown of the business due to the COVID-19 pandemic has led to further problems for clubs and competition organisers.
