Poet Teju Cole on why the US should think carefully before attacking Britain over its chemical-weapons sales. Excerpts: 

This talk of “tailored attacks” limited to Islington just isn’t credible. Next thing you know, a missile accidentally hits Dalston.

Why hasn’t the US fixed this yet? A. It’s complicated. To burn down Oxford would be sad. Do nothing, and Britain remains dangerous.

And a flood of refugees from Greenwich and Lewisham pouring into St Malo would be Ban Ki-moon’s nightmare. The French aren’t keen either.

Q. What is Britain? A. Britain is a country in Europe. Its people are called the Britons. Elizabeth II is the Queen of the Britons.
