One of the most bizarre arguments made by the people who support Britain's exit from the European Union is the notion that a self-exiled United Kingdom will find a new global relevance, and indeed leadership role, as the center of the "Anglosphere".The idea is that there are a group of countries – with the "Five Eyes" intelligence-sharing community of the U.S., U.K., Australia, Canada and New Zealand at its core – who share so much of a common heritage in language, history, law, democratic institutions and human-rights-respecting values, that they can be a new, united force for global peace and prosperity.Closer or more formal association with the U.K. would bring absolutely nothing to this table.Probably the hardest truth that Britain's Anglosphere dreamers must confront is that there is just no mood politically, in any of the candidate countries of which I'm aware, to build some new global association of the linguistically and culturally righteous.
