The election of Trump could seal the fate of the US far longer than his presidency, bringing entrenched divide and rule coupled with economic and global insecurity. Thankfully his chances are slim and falling by the day, but clear knowledge of the destructiveness of his character and vision for the US, make this a protest vote far more hate-filled and dangerous.
Unpredictable. But only up to a point. The one thing you can be sure of is that Clinton will continue to hammer Trump on each and every single thing he says and does between now and polling day.
So I just spent the morning on the phone talking about myself. No, I'm not the biggest narcissist in the world (we'll get to him later), in truth I'm promoting my latest album.
A hundred days is a long time in American politics and anything can happen. But the original plot of saving the GOP from itself will require embellishment it is unclear Trump, by himself, can deliver.
The populist appeal that Trump has come to embody is only a mere figment of the right-wing tsunami that has engulfed the West; from Brexit to the rise of Marine Le Pen and Geert Wilders, numerous politicians have found methods of harnessing voter disillusionment, channelling feelings of economic insecurity and international fear into fodder for their own ideology.
There has been a lot of negative content written on the Clinton Trump race for the White House-and here's some more. In the USA the political battle r...
Please, look in a mirror, and ask yourself seriously: 'Can I face myself if I vote for Donald Trump?' Surely, you already know the answer. He is a liar, a fraud, and a narcissist with a mean streak the width of the Pacific Ocean. Worse than that, and this is what concerns those of us watching from afar, he is very, very dangerous.
Hillary has made mistakes along the way, as she herself admits. So have I. She has made compromises I wish she never made. But that does not stop me from celebrating #HistoryMade in Philadelphia and believing fervently that Hillary Clinton, not Donald Trump, must be the next President of the United States.
If this is the post-truth era, we should be scared of it. If the post-truth era is upon us, we are living in a world where paranoia is the new rationality and where ignorance brings fame and attention. It is a world where intellectuals and research are cast aside and the capacity to talk on the cheapest level is praised as courageous and honourable; a world where rational thinking and adherence to evidence is unfashionable.
It's strange though, that when people were asked about their trust in public figures, they had the common sense not to believe Joey Essex on this issue. And yet most of us probably have about as much knowledge as him on many of the big, complex issues we face. We're all Joey Essex, in a way. But we seem to trust ourselves. Maybe we shouldn't?
It is tempting, as we head into August, to gaze across the Channel at the continent of Europe and despair. Some of us will be about to take our holidays in France, Spain, or Italy - others will stay at home and wonder what is to become of us.
There was a moment in midsummer when it looked as though the presidential election could be a blowout, with Trump flailing in response to a lawsuit brought against his ersatz university, and his campaign machinery looking not just disorganised but practically non-existent. That moment is over.
There's something about a man telling a woman to be quiet that suggests the inroads we've made towards equality could be wiped away in one snappy put down. It reminds us that under the wrong leader things could suddenly become very fragile, start to move backwards, get a bit prehistoric.

In truth, they are everywhere, organising in all the corners of this world, with no other urge but to clip their cloth and colour their skin so they might mimic the superheroes they worship, as if they were real and living personages
The humble domain name is a small but significant ingredient in this. It's both a signpost to a candidate's home on the web, and an element of their online brand. At Nominet we have been looking with interest across the Atlantic at all this high-profile domain name related activity, and we think it's high time for a round-up of candidates' domain name strategies.
