…and again

I love America. I love it above all because I admire the raw vitality of its constitution. That constitution – bequeathed by British and French liberals – was intended to create a melting pot for global migrants as they colonised their way across America. Hardly changed since the 18th century, it remains archaic, ramshackle and flawed. But it works. It keeps the melting pot stirred, and above all it sustains an internally stable nation. Compare it with Britain’s de facto constitution, which is so overcentralised it may soon lose its entire Celtic fringe.

It wasn’t the US Senate that saved Trump – it was the founding fathers
