There have been two stand-out examples of such terrible parking this week in Cornwall that they were almost unbelievable.The first was in St Ives, where a car parked on double yellow lines had caused chaos a bus to get wedged up against a row of shops as it tried to pass. The second was the abandoned car found on a granite bollard near Helston. OK, so the driver perhaps hadn't meant to park there, but had left their car all the same.But these are just two of numerous incidents of blundering...

Those alarmed by the president’s blundering around the world should be careful who they empower.

Blundering past the boundary between private business and public service that has long defined American political life, U. S. President Donald Trump’s lawyer Michael D. Cohen appears to have played a key role in Andrey Artemenko’s botched back-door attempt at a peace deal for Donbas. The New York Times reports that Cohen acted as a middleman for Artemenko, delivering the peace plan to now-ousted National Security Advisor Michael Flynn. Cohen has denied that he gave the plan to Flynn, issuing conflicting statements on the matter. But that wouldnt be Cohen’s first run-in with Ukraine. The 49-year old longtime Trump attorney, who said in a 2009 interview that he speaks some Russian, appears to have at least traveled to Ukraine in the mid‑2000s in connection with investing in an ethanol plant, and even set up a company to that end. Cohen’s wife is of Ukrainian origin.

A move into TV could be seen as ironic after the Daily Mail claimed this week that Clattenburg was "increasingly tired of the level of scrutiny which follows high-profile decisions, such as his failure to disallow Alexis Sanchez's handball goal during Arsenal's 2-0 victory over Hull on Saturday". Marina Hyde of The Guardian appears unsympathetic. As he plots his "Garbo-like exile", Clattenburg would do well to remember that "being able to withstand scrutiny of high‑profile decisions is his job". But she is concerned about a possible departure and urges him to stay. "I must say I have always enjoyed the posturings of refereeing's Mark Clattenburg – and now more than ever," she declares. "We live in an age where preposterous characters who aren't capable of blundering us into nuclear security breaches are surely to be treasured." "It may sound tempting now, but I can assure Mark – and his busy agent – that he's never going to get the I'm A Celeb booking all the way over there, much less the memoirs deal for an opus provisionally entitled I, Clattenburg.

They are objects of both derision and terror. This is why it is important to see the Trump team as simultaneously pitiful and blundering but also armed and dangerous. Placing the comically inept and the ideologically delusional in charge of important, complex bureaucratic and diplomatic processes is extremely dangerous. Even in the best of times, overseen by experienced, dedicated public servants, the U.S. federal government presents a massive coordination problem that can only be managed with constant effort. The perception of chaos at the highest levels of American policymakingagencies and advisors working to sabotage one another, for instance – can only encourage risk-seeking behavior on the part of both allies and adversaries, as can be seen with Russia’s recent threatening moves, including a treaty-violating deployment of missiles and brinksmanship on the high seas.

Nearly two years into the Saudi invasion of Yemen, the United States has struggled with its role in a conflict that has been much longer, and far bloodier, than anyone imagined. President Trump's early interest in Yemen risks doubling down on already risky US entanglements in the conflict, and blundering even deeper into the war as a direct participant. The Saudi invasion's first immediate effect in 2015 was to dramatically increase al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula's (AQAP's) territory, as they focused exclusively on fighting the Shi'ite Houthis early in the war, ceding whole cities to AQAP along the coast. The US has always showed an interest in launching seemingly random airstrikes at AQAP, but the Trump Administration stuck its neck out with a major ground raid, targeting what was described as AQAP headquarters but later revealed to be the home of a suspected collaborator.

The largest number of Middle East refugees are now in Syria, thank you Uncle Sam, and its neighbours, Jordan and Lebanon. The second biggest group are the 5.2 million Palestinian refugees scattered across the Levant. Iraq is awash with internal refugees, thank you George W. Bush. Add now a couple of million refugees from strife-torn South Sudan, a new failed nation created by blundering US Middle East policy as a way of punishing disobedient Sudan, thank Bush and Obama. At the same time, Washington must avoid any and all risk of military clashes in Syria with Russia. We can't keep huffing and puffing that Moscow has no business in Syria when it's as close to southern Russia as northern Mexico is to Texas. The US has troops and bases across the globe, most lately in Africa. Who are we to tell Russia to get out of Syria? Just when it seemed that the Syrian conflict was beginning to simmer down, Trump's intervention will be certain to heat up the conflict and undermine potential peace agreements.

So you wanted to start with the Metro and Boris Johnson? Blundering Boris! I don't think Boris got the memo not to mention the war when you ask for a good deal when it comes to Europe. Doris Johnson's comments about President Hollande, that he hopes he does not punish Britain afraid of saying what he thinks, but those sort of comments will not be entirely helpful.

Sure, it's a gimmick, but this approach gives you a much greater sense of connection with the sprinting mammal, although grumpy traditionalists can instead opt for a much more boring two-button system. We've seen several mobile games put a new spin on chess, but Chess Runner amusingly turns the age-old favourite into a frantic arcade battle. You take on the role of a white knight, darting about in L-shaped bounds. Your aim: to fight your way through black pieces and capture a golden king. Different twists are peppered throughout the game's levels. The most basic mode involves ensuring you don't end up in a position to be taken by static or patrolling black pieces. But sometimes you must fend off a barrage of attacks from pawns or rooks, or quickly get to the king during a speed-run test. It's particularly in those against-the-clock challenges that Chess Runner bares its teeth, temporarily making you forget everything you ever knew about chess, before blundering into a bishop.
