Trump governs as the leader of a divided party in a nation divided. He has failed to broaden his support and therefore has no political safety net. The health-care debacle provides a political circuit breaker for the new administration, an event calamitous enough to make even the most self-confident of leaders stop and ask what happened — and what, if anything, can be done to set a fresh course.

Baden-Powell was right – Be Prepared

This letter in the Daily Telegraph is part of correspondence about disruption at rugby matches due to beer/loo runs

SIR – On a freezing cold evening at a recent Harlequins rugby match, a couple of old boys near the end of my row sat down, wrapped their blankets and scarves around themselves and took out their scotch eggs and hip flasks.

When asked to stand up for those on the beer or loo run, they politely refused. If they could prepare themselves, then surely others half their age could do so also, they said – to much cheering.

If we can all demonstrate the necessary gumption and start employing the same tactics, the annoying interruptions will be seen for what they are and hopefully cease.
