Last Night of the Proms | British Airways | Brexit | Jadon Sancho | Love’s number
Losing an empire and looking for a role in shaping our international future in 2019 should attract those attending the Last Night of the Proms to singing the following: “Lands of hope and hazard / One world for all life / May we be your safeguard / Curbing greed and strife / (Repeat) / Honour nature’s boundaries! / End the waste of war! We can guard Earth’s riches / Now and evermore / (Repeat).” While waving their copies of the Guardian.
• In the light of the looming climate emergency, should the British Airways pilots not be lauded for stopping hundreds of flights a day (BA begins to cancel flights as second pilots’ strike looms, 13 September)?
