Time for Trump to grow up
FINALLY, after the most divisive presidential race in history, Joe Biden has been declared the new president of the United States.

Donald Trump’s time at the White House was a mesmeric, once-in-a-lifetime, bombastic reality TV performance.
He was loved by millions who admired his energy and saw truth in his mantra “Make America Great Again”.
But there is no doubt he also regularly acted in a reckless fashion completely at odds with the office of the 45th US President — settling scores like a boorish bar room bully in late-night Twitter outbursts.
He now needs to accept his defeat in a gracious way — not act like a giant, spoilt child.
He must oversee an orderly transfer of power, rather than pursue implausible claims of election fraud which could leave the US paralysed.
That is in the best interests not only of America but this country too.
The last thing we need as we try to seal a post-Brexit deal with the US is for our biggest ally to be in chaos.
We wish Mr Trump well in whatever he chooses to do next.
He came to power as the choice of US voters. They have spoken again and he must leave the world stage in a dignified manner.
PM met his match
BORIS Johnson badly misjudged the nation’s mood when he resisted Marcus Rashford’s plea to extend free kids’ meals to half-term.
So we applaud the PM’s decision to stump up the millions required to ensure no child goes hungry this Christmas.

Many Tories will be asking why he allowed this row to run into extra time.
His failure to act swiftly risked eroding good will among former Labour voters who helped put him in power.
Happily for the PM, he managed to grind out a result by agreeing to two of the footballer’s three demands.
Now he must finish off this match and complete the hat-trick.
Debt to our heroes
TODAY will be a Remembrance Sunday like no other.
Lockdown restrictions have played havoc with traditional ceremonies.
Our debt to them will continue even when Covid is a distant memory[/caption]

Even the Queen was forced to bring forward a 100th anniversary commemoration for the Unknown Warrior in Westminster Abbey.
But never more have we needed to be reminded of her stoicism and the sacrifice made by the fallen.
Our debt to them will continue even when Covid is a distant memory.
