Cyrus Kabiru should have been in Edinburgh next week. He is one of 19 people to be given a TED global fellowship, marking recognition of his emergence as one of Africa's most inventive artists. But he has been barred from Britain. The organisers say such problems occur time and again with Britain. I hear similar complaints from musicians, angered at being prevented from performing here.

This is an important moment. Here is a party that had a Home Secretary who talked of Britain being "swamped" with migrants and a PM who borrowed the language of the British National Party. At the last election, it had the most hostile manifesto on the subject. Yet it feels compelled to say it has been too weak.

They journeyed from the East to pay homage to the boy king bearing gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. But they would struggle to complete the feat today. Times for wise men have never been tougher. Gold prices are soaring on commodity markets, myrrh crops have been hit by drought – and now frankincense could soon be no more.
