“With every challenge comes an opportunity” – former Labour home secretary John Reid, July 2013. The quote is one we all need to bear in mind as we face the huge challenge of Brexit and tackling skills shortages in our country.

It is the assessment of Trump's own erstwhile chief strategist, Stephen Bannon, who recently told The Weekly Standard that "the Trump presidency that we fought for, and won, is over." It is also the conclusion of Julius Krein, the founder…

But beyond such outbursts, which amount to little more than gusts of hot air, the hostile…
