You’ve sorely misunderstood Brexit. I’m not sure if you’re from the UK or not, but if you aren’t, you’ll have been fed a very biased version of the debate. The deal on the table is actually quite good, but isn’t actually the full deal (that will come later). With regards to soft power, perhaps I didn’t articulate it quite as well as you, but I’m aware of its full meaning and I think that is implicit in the piece. Iran, albeit certainly hostile to the west, has showed willingness and flexibility, and the upholding of the nuclear arrangement shows that — along with Britain’s power. For further details on why Britain has the top spot for soft power, I’ll refer you to the report.
