Britain broke ties with the European Union after signing a post-Brexit trade deal at 11 a.m. late last year. It ended Britain’s 47-year membership, and Boris Johnson celebrated Britain’s new sovereignty, insisting that the country was beyond conflict. Despite Brexit, Britain is now on an “economic highway”, with Gabor Steingart acknowledging that Britain is doing better than Germany during the pandemic.
The UK is making progress on our COVID vaccination programme. According to our World in Data statistics, 40 per cent of UK people are fully vaccinated, compared to only 19 per cent in Germany.
The European Union has stumbled upon the next catastrophe, and its own vaccination-adopting countries have partnered with vaccine maker AstraZeneca over production distribution issues that have raged.
In an article for the German news website FocusOnline, Mr. Steingart made several entries titled “God smiles us: Why Boris Johnson’s British are now stopping us from stopping us financially talking”.
He wrote: “Boris Johnson and his British need not understand.
“But if you look at the island, you will see nothing better than Germany during the pandemic.
“Despite Brexit, the UK is currently on a fast economic path,” he said.
“To be able to better recognize yourself, look vainly in the mirror and wisely look at the garden fence.
“We just saw that we saw Germans there, especially in the distance and in the British Isles,” he said.

The journalist and author said that despite the pandemic, the UK economy is expected to grow by 5.3 per cent this year and 5.1 per cent by 2022. “Germany is also growing, but very slowly.”
He wrote: “The EU’s laudable achievements have made the leap from political discourse to economic reality no more than those outside Britain.”
The UK services sector is expected to see the highest growth rate in 24 years in 2021 – despite all the damage caused by Brexit policies.
Finally, Germans refer to unemployment figures from March figures, which show that the unemployment rate in Great Britain is 4.8 percent, while in Germany it is 6.2 percent.
He added: “Thanks to the decline in the unemployment rate (see chart), growth in the UK should accelerate faster in 2021 than in Germany.”
In the end, Stinkert remarked that Germany was not to emulate the British approach, but agreed: “God smiles at us”.
The German wrote: “We don’t have to imitate the British way, but we have to understand it.
“The nation-state, which has been declared dead by several German politicians, appears to be alive on the island.
“You realize that God is smiling at us.”
