Thoughts on the EU referendum (2)

That Dean Acheson quote about Britain losing an empire but not finding a role - I suppose you've noticed that it gets trotted out again and again. Why?

Has a foreigner ever said the same thing that about, say, Portugal or Japan? And if they had done, would the Portuguese or Japanese spend so much time repeating it to themselves?

Could we have Japan's role when they don't need it any more?
