This diplomat completely dismisses the EU Institutions and overplays Germany's role. At the end he even writes that most Brits won't even care about Brexit , well I'm living in EU & find this comment very hurtful as my rights have been taken away from me. If you really want to learn about Germany's role in EU, learn German and read a book written by a German diplomat not some ignorant British eurosceptic
Britain and Germany have major differences, which both sides generally fail to appreciate. Mr Lever has a lot of valuable insights and this is essential reading for a British audience which wants to get under the skin of Europe's most powerful economy.
