Christian Odendahl, chief economist at the Centre for European Reform think tank, said Britain can offer Germany security from neighbouring threats. He believes the increasing assertiveness of Russia, China and Turkey offers an opportunity for an improved relationship between Britain and Germany.

He added: “The most constructive Britain is on the foreign and security policy side, the better the relationship will be, because that’s one of the issues that Germany’s unsure how to deal with and fix. This is where Germany’s concerns are and where London has quite a bit to offer.”
