United European Emirates

Tony Blair with some advice -- delivered in Abu Dhabi -- to Europe (via Emirates News Agency):

Noting that the United Arab Emirates is an exemplary nation in terms of its open-minded policies, Blair praised the leaders of the UAE for their strong, long-term and strategic planning; saying that the West has much to learn in this regard. He also praised the ECSSR for its role in serving decision makers and for its exemplary abilities as a think tank.

One odd thing is that Blair apparently pitched his address in terms of political forces which are open to versus opposed to globalization, with Brexit presumably in the latter, yet Boris Johnson has in the past boasted about being mayor of the 8th emirate of the UAE i.e. London.
