There is an endless stream of commentators who are so utterly clueless that it’s a struggle keeping up. In fact, I cannot keep up. The best I can do is occasionally  highlight the most serious offenders.

Today, I point my finger at Financial Times writer Philip Stephens.


Stephens says Now Angela Merkel Wears the West’s Mantle.

I have no problem with that title. In fact, it’s highly accurate. My objection is his accompanying rant.

Stephens concludes with “Europeans have struggled for some time to uphold their values against authoritarians without and populists within. The danger now comes from across the Atlantic. It falls to Ms Merkel to speak for what during the past seven decades we have known as the west.”
