Britain and Germany

Hamish McRea, who has been an economics correspondent at various newspapers since I was a sixth former, has a good piece in yesterday's Independent and "i" about Britain and Germany.

He points out that for various reasons Britain and Germany are both doing a lot better economically than the rest of Europe, analyses the two countries' different strengths and suggests that both could benefit by learning from the other.

He also explains why it is vital for both Britain and Germany to foster economic reform in the EU and other European countries, that the two countries have a lot in common, and it is very important to both that we work together.

The "i" version is called "It's no good glowering at Germany" and the Independent version has the wordier title "Angela Merkel will be welcomed with full honours tomorrow and for good reason: our two countries need each other."
