I liked his point near the end: I went to Germany fresh after graduation, and now here I am, decades later, in another German speaking zone..
I spent a year in Regensburg as part of my degree and it was such an eye-opener and broadened the horizons as intended. My personal gut feel is that this is exactly what the UK govt wanted to stop by pulling out of Erasmus. Broader horizons tend to generate more liberal views, and provide a point of comparison with the home country, and the current government might not stand up to such comparison or scrutiny.
(On a side note, even language exchanges at school were a real eye-opener, to discover that it really and truly is absolutely *everything* that is in another language).
