DONALD Trump will end his chequered presidency in abject shame.
Last night’s appalling scenes as his thugs stormed the US Capitol building end any hope he might have had of a legacy, or even a future in politics.
He will be remembered not as he would want, for the few positives on the economy and foreign affairs.
It will be for his four years of bovine tweets, monstrous ignorance and rabble-rousing — and finally for trying to overthrow a democratic election and whipping up a violent mob to storm Washington DC.
His craven, arrogant stupidity has harmed one of the greatest nations on Earth, Britain’s No1 friend and ally.
He will never be forgiven for it.
One job . . . jab
AS our daily Covid death toll climbs over 1,000, nothing could be more urgent now than vaccinating millions of Brits 24/7.
This is a dire national emergency. Has that truly sunk in across Whitehall?
At every turn bureaucracy slows the rollout: PHE not working Sundays.
Chemists’ offers of help ignored. The laborious batch-testing of vaccines we were told were ready to go. The “woke” qualifications medics are told they need.
Cut the red tape. It should be all hands to the pump to save lives.
Boris Johnson should rouse us to a great national effort personally, Churchill-style.
At brewers Greene King and Young’s, staff are joining our 17,500-strong Jabs Army. Shepherd Neame says its dormant pubs could be jab centres.
That’s typical of the imagination shown everywhere but, it seems, Westminster.
What’s the hold-up? Every delay is deadly.
THE EU’s cosying-up to China’s dangerous and repugnant regime is now turning the stomachs even of ardent europhiles.
Brexit-hating Tory Lord Patten rightly wants Brussels to scrap its “miserable” new investment deal with Beijing after new arrests of democrats in Hong Kong.
And let’s not overlook China’s genocide of Uighur Muslims — and its blocking of the World Health Organisation probe into exactly how the totalitarian state unleashed Covid on the planet.
Patten says Brussels’ deal “spits in the face of human rights”. Well said.
The silence from other “liberal” EU fans is telling.
THE weekly “clap for carers” was a moving show of national unity last year.
We’re delighted to see it return tonight.
The trauma some medics are enduring is even worse now than it was then.
If we can do anything to lift their spirits — as well as our own — we must.
