Is outing people really the remit of the National Trust? | Catherine Bennett

The furore over Felbrigg Hall and LGBTQ rights shows an organisation far removed from its founding purposeAfter being dumped by Lord Byron in 1812, Lady Caroline Lamb re-evaluated her servants’ livery. She took a keen interest in livery. The new retainers’ outfits would feature specially engraved buttons inscribed (satirising the Byron family motto, Crede Byron) Ne crede Byron – don’t trust Byron.Latin, bespoke buttons, hand-sewn alterations: how much easier it is, nowadays, for wealthy employers with a brand new message to refresh their outward-facing look. At the National Trust, for instance, when that body was prompted, on the anniversary of the decriminalisation of homosexuality, into an unprecedented show of LGBTQ sympathies, it must have been the work of a moment to issue staff with rainbow lanyards and badges.

Can a dual national fly if one of the passports expires soon?
I'm a dual national and have passports from both New Zealand and Taiwan. I live in Singapore and have a residence permit. The NZ passport will expire in less than 6 months and I am supposed to fly to the US. My Taiwan passport is still valid. How can I fly to the US? Can I book the flight with NZ passport and enter the US using TW passport under the Visa Waiver Program? Must I renew NZ passport and just it to travel? With the first, will I be allowed to board?

Mark did no work in London. He knew too many people, he said, and besides, he wanted to rest. Catherine and he went out a great deal into society. At Christmas they ran over to Paris and spent three weeks there. During this holiday William Foster, it almost seemed, had ceased to exist. Mark Sirrett was light-hearted, gay, and the kindest, most thoughtful husband in the world. When they came back to London, Catherine went at once to see her mother. Mr. Ardagh had gone to the Riviera and Catherine found Mrs. Ardagh quite alone in the big house in Eaton Square.
It struck Catherine that Jenny had her opinion and was scarcely as compliant as Mr. Ardagh evidently supposed her to be. At Catherine's last remark Jenny glanced up. The two girls looked into each other's eyes, and, in Jenny's, Catherine thought she saw a flickering defiance.
