The EU is preparing to act against the “disproportionate” amount of British television and film content shown in Europe in the wake of Brexit, in a blow to the UK entertainment industry and the country’s “soft power” abroad.
The UK has come up recently with a new image of Global Britain. According to most observers, this is an empty concept that tries to capitalize on regaining a so-called sovereignty after the UK exited the European Union. This new episode of the cultural war between the former British empire and the continent will probably not be the last. We can expect Boris Johnson, UK prime minister for now, to use this new blow as a way to stir up the already inflammable nationalist fire in England and the rest of its vassal nations.
