By Daniel Hannan ~ OK, so what about Britain? Every commentator has recycled the same lines about Emmanuel Macron as France’s president: he’s young; he’s untested; he might not have a majority; he won’t be able to be all things to all men; he’s a breath of fresh air. But, just to be parochial for […]

By Daniel Hannan ~ I’m ashamed to say that I can’t remember whether or not I met PC Keith Palmer, the policeman murdered by Khalid Masood in Parliament last week.
