It's a TV show called Say Yes to the Dress, and basically it's an American reality series about women getting extremely excited and being very happy about buying wedding dresses. There are no massacres, there are just the right amount of walls and all of the clocks chime delightfully.

It Is Not Just Trump That Has Emboldened White Supremacists, It Is Our Entire System

The election of President Trump signalled an appetite within the nation for a kind of political revolution, and a weariness towards typical establishment politics. However to truly reform our world for the better, it is a moral revolution that we first need.

On Occasion, The Media's Silence Is Just As Worrying As Inflammatory Headlines

Many Mosques in America are used to receiving threatening phone calls and messages, this has become normalised. Yet it is a sign of how far the dehumanisation of Muslims has come that even a bomb attack against a mosque is not considered worthy of eliciting the same level of response as other terror attacks.

Why Can't May Cosy Up To Trump Like Macron Did?

What I find fascinating is the difference in tone many of these publications took when covering Theresa May's visit to Washington in January. Then, a leader of a large European country with a surprisingly fragile economy cosying up to Trump was seen as desperate. Now, it's being portrayed as a bromance. Why?

Fly Me To The Moon... Not JFK

Moaner. That's the image I am getting lumbered with. A middle-aged man constantly prattling on about lack of disability care and the image this brilliant community often gets lumbered with by politicians and papers. One day I'll lighten up, honest, it's just that until that day I will huff and stomp around like someone constantly looking for the exit in a comedy club run by Jeremy Vine.

The March Of Renewable Energy Is Unstoppable Even By President Trump

Adnan Al-Daini | Posted 05.04.2017 | UK
Adnan Al-Daini

President Trump's energy policy is doomed to failure as it comes into collision with economic reality. The advance of renewable energy sources is now unstoppable. So here is my prediction: the keystone pipeline will not get built and new coal mines will not be opened in the US or anywhere else in the world.

Why Did Trump Fail To Pass His Health Reforms?

Johnny Luk | Posted 27.03.2017 | UK Politics
Johnny Luk

President Trump is probably sitting in the Oval Office seething. What went wrong? Leaving aside the technical details, such as the loss of medical insurance coverage for 25 million people - scaring the moderates, or in the other extreme, not cutting costs enough for the diehards, this legislative exercise, like all major decisions, is about behaviour.

Discovering Downtown Miami

Dubbed the 'Manhattan of the South', Brickell (rhymes with pickle and nickel) is Miami's financial district, and used to be an all-work-no-play kind of hood. These days, however, there's a decent post-work scene, with new bars and restaurants popping up all the time, plus excellent hotels for those who prefer to stay in the heart of things.

Immigrants Make America Great

Our leaders must remember that immigrants have created some of our largest companies, built America's global dominance and if we created barriers to bringing talent to the US the likes of Apple and Google wouldn't exist today. The immigrants who did important, world-changing things did them here because this country welcomed them and that's what makes America so great!

American Prisons Need Reform

In the last 30 years, America has become the prison capital of the world. What has propelled the land of the free to become the isle of the incarcerated is the rise of for-profit prisons. Today there are over 2.3million people behind bars, more than in China.

I don't like him. I don't like what he says. I don't like what he stands for. I don't even like the colour of his skin (which I hope doesn't make me a racist). But I'd have him round for tea, but then being British I'd probably have most people round for tea.
