The special and safe place into which Hamilton will arrive is a London that shares many similarities with New York - London voted to remain a full member of the European Union just as New York voted overwhelmingly for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 Presidential election.
Am I working hard enough at encouraging the many talented women below me to succeed in the very top jobs? The truth is not. It's partly because I am reluctant to bang the feminist drum in a company which is incredibly egalitarian. Somehow focusing on women seems unfair on the talented young men we have in the company.
Doesn't the phrase 'choose your battles' come to mind? You know, the one we use when dealing with tantrum-throwing toddlers and teenagers. His parents obviously forgot to drum that one into Donnie's little skull, and thus, my list of parenting misses committed by Mr. and Mrs.Trump -
Putin may hand us the tools, but it is we who choose to use them. Whether it be through thoughtless articles, poor journalism, or worse, misinformed citizenry, who would rather squabble over party politics and pointless issues than rally to the defence of our democracies, against a man who seeks to create a new world order.
It is better to not believe a truth than to believe a lie, because this defines yourself too. If you believe a lie that has negative effects, it shows you may have malicious intentions. But if you don't believe a truth that has negative effects, then you may be well-disposed. The choice is yours. Above all, be smart and see in depth.
After what seems like an eternity since the election, Donald Trump will be inaugurated as the 45th President of the United States this week. Whilst the initial shock of the election result has started to wear off it has been replaced with the smaller, but more frequent shocks of how a Trump Presidency is shaping up.
The anti-establishment tide across the world isn't just restricted to the world of politics; it's also sweeping away traditional fintech and allowing digital currencies to flourish.
The scenario which now looks plausible is this: the UK heads for a hard Brexit completely cutting ties with the EU, and turns itself into a low-tax, low-standards economy, destroying decades of law building up environmental protection. This is done by a deregulatory government unhindered by Parliament, yet without a mandate from either a General Election or, in any meaningful way, the EU referendum. There was a clear 'leave' vote on 23 June, but it's also clear people weren't voting in favour of diluted environmental standards. Theresa May called for Britain to 'come together' to make a success of Brexit. But that would mean supporting a process that, in its most extreme version, would require degrading and debasing environmental standards
"Jeb Bush would stand up - "He is not a true conservative" - who cares?... The people don't care you know when you're talking - they don't care, they want good deals. You know what? They want their jobs back". Trump has a solid grasp on why he won and why his opponents lost. It was about jobs.
Most Britons - whether they voted Leave or Remain - will be the losers in this scenario; the top 1% of earners and tax-avoiding multinationals will be the winners. So the Prime Minister needs to stop betting the house on the most unpredictable US president in history, and embrace the safe option of staying in the Single Market.
I can't control it with pills or therapy or positive thinking because I have no power over the causes of it. The causes are the outside world. Trump presidency, rise of the far right, Brexit, Tories chipping away at the NHS, the fact I'll never own a home. None of these things are my fault and yet they are making me colossally depressed.

His many public spats aside, it is impossible to deny that Trump has leveraged social media, and Twitter specifically, in a way that no other politician has previously achieved -- and he has already indicated his intention to tweet major policy announcements rather than going through traditional communications channels.
With just days to go until the swearing-in of President Trump on January 20, the world waits with bated breath to hear the maverick orator deliver his...
Horror, fear, anger, disgust, and shame were just some of the emotions I experienced as I watched Donald Trump's appalling press conference on Wednesday. If you didn't see it, you cannot begin to imagine how truly terrifying it was. And next Friday, Mr Trump will be sworn in as the 45th president of the United States. It will be recorded in history as one of Western democracy's darkest hours.
