The next few days provide an opportunity to make the step change the UNHCR has prematurely hailed in the way governments, working together, could make life easier for refugees and reduce the strain on the countries currently bearing the brunt. This requires collective political will and individual leadership from the government heads gathered in New York, but, as things stand, the odds are this chance is going to be missed.

Rather than concentrating on shoe preferences and colours of outfits, the political message over the last week is one that Nicola Sturgeon perfectly articulated over Twitter. That politics aside, girls everywhere should be observing the recent female political appointments and as a result believe that nothing should be off limits for them.

But there the parallel ends, because among the international community - governments, corporations, international institutions - no David has yet appeared.
