Am Wochenende waren die Peisers mit Kind, Kegel und Union Jack im verregneten London, um bei der Bootsparade an der Themse das 60. Thronjubiläum von Queen Elisabeth II zu feiern. Die britische Monarchie ist so intakt und beliebt wie lange nicht mehr. Warum das so ist erklärt Iain Martin: The post-war European idea, of continent-wide ever-closer integration, is dying. Being a compact, coherent nation state open to the outside world, which has excellent relations with its immediate neighbours but which is not prepared to be run by a supra-national body, sounds like a recipe for 21st century success. For all the gloom, Britain is well-placed to emerge from this crisis in a strong position. It has its own currency, the world’s leading language, cultural heft, a strong trading history outside Europe that can be revived. And as the Jubilee has reminded us, it has that great stabalising force: a good monarchy.
