Last Friday week the US Supreme Court did what everyone expected and overturned Roe v Wade.

The initial Democratic reaction was limp, unorganised and unspecific. Nancy Pelosi talked of being “personally overwhelmed” and she read a poem. Not a particularly good one. Joe Biden focused on the importance of protests being calm and non-violent. Each asked people to vote Democrat. Neither said how such a vote would help reverse the decision.
