“Whatever happens, we will remain friends”

The evening before the Brexit referendum in June 2016, Olaf Scholz, then Hamburg’s First Mayor (equivalent to first minister), ended his speech at a Garden Party in honour of HM The Queen’s 90th birthday with the words that whatever happens, “Freundschaft bleibt”. Hamburg will remain a friend of Britain come what may. This sentiment has not changed.
The British are ‘Willkommen in Hamburg’.
