In an astonishing interview, Mr Stoiber added he was now vary of attending large gatherings and understood the concerns of those people who were avoiding travelling to Tunisia, Turkey or Egypt.

A major reason for the West’s success of the last few centuries is that it was a high-trust society. We could trust each other, do deals with people we scarcely knew, and move around safely. Now we must spend ever more on security and still it will never be enough. Why strive for and share with people you do not trust?
The miracle of Western success is breaking down. Well done PC crew!
