This, by Theresa May’s erstwhile adviser Nick Timothy, is drivel; Merkel is not to blame for the migration crisis - that would be the Syrian civil war & widespread turmoil - & to suggest liberal values have failed is twisted telegraph.co.uk/politics/2018/…
There’s a complete failure to recognise the consequences of the West’s actions, a disregard towards the lives lost as desperate people flee even more desperate places.
May, thankfully, is better than Timothy
The actions of Merkel were quite explicitly the response of a leader taking responsibility while hard right govts tried to blame others & avoid their duty
Liberalism may well have failed in many ways - though I happen to think not - but attacking it when it had quite specifically been excluded is dogmatic & symptomatic of a sympathy towards a culture war
