Plenty of Republicans in Washington were happy to savage the Covington kids, probably to inoculate themselves from charges of improper thought. Bill Kristol asked his Twitter followers to consider “the contrast between the calm dignity and quiet strength of Mr. Phillips and the behavior of MAGA brats who have absorbed the spirit of Trumpism."

British opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn moved a step closer to paving the way for another referendum on European Union membership by trying to use parliament to grab control of Brexit from Prime Minister Theresa May.

Today 09:55 GMT

According to establishment politicians and the establishment media, President Trump is like some kind of demented bull in a china shop, barging into issues he doesn't understand with a dangerous combination of ignorance and bluster.

Macron and Merkel are trying to safeguard Europe, not dominate it

Mary Anne Marsh: Two years of Trump and it's midnight (not morning) in America

Today 08:59 GMT

Two years ago, Donald Trump took the oath of office and delivered a dystopian inaugural address that was more midnight in America than morning in America.

There is one line in his inaugural address that explains the troubling Trump approach to governing America: “The oath of office I take today is an oath of allegiance to all Americans.” Two years later, Trump’s actions have taken a toll on our country that warrants the dark view of his speech.
