'There's a patient of mine I'd like you to see. A second opinion if you like'
Judith raised a quizzical eyebrow. 'OK, fire away'.
We were having lunch together as we did once a month, as we had done since our student days together. We were unmarried and I suppose we enjoyed a monthly session of mild flirtation from which we came away in a euphoric state of intoxication without further expectation. It wasn't a romantic relationship but one based on a time endorsed personal compatibility limited by the demanding nature of our professions. Judith was a psychiatrist in a hospital and I a doctor in private practice.
We rarely discussed a patient's problems but on this occasion I felt I had something on my hands that might be beyond me. I hesitated about how to start.
'Well, are you going to tell me about it?'
'Yes, of course' I said, 'It's a man, about twenty five, been a patient for years. I suppose I'd better call him Mr Smith. He's, er, I don't know how to put it. …he's in a state of ext

The unimaginable has happened. President Trump. Add your voice to the open letter below to make it a manifesto for the next 4 years — then spread it far and wide:


Dear Mr. Trump,

This is not what greatness looks like.

The world rejects your fear, hate-mongering, and bigotry. We reject your support for torture, your calls for murdering civilians, and your general encouragement of violence. We reject your denigration of women, Muslims, Mexicans, and millions of others who don’t look like you, talk like you, or pray to the same god as you. 

Facing your fear we choose compassion. Hearing your despair we choose hope. Seeing your ignorance we choose understanding. 

As citizens of the world, we stand united against your brand of division.

(And don't get me wrong: I've no love at all for the American "establishment" or Hillary Clinton in particular. She'd have been a hell of a lot better for America, but American foreign policy has been pretty dreadful for the rest of the world for a long time, whoever's been president, and I very much doubt she'd have made it any better. But this evil man could make it very much worse.)
