"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.
In Bernie Sanders' town hall interview on Monday the 9th he was asked what Democrats should do to win in the next election. He responded, "If we were ...
A recent Guardian column asked 'What should Jeremy Corbyn's brand of leftwing populism look like?'. It is not clear that leftwing populism can be succ...
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.
The fact that the future president of the United States, Donald Trump, took the unprecedented decision NOT to ask Under Secretary for Nuclear Security, Frank Klotz, and his deputy, Madelyn Creedon, to stay on until he finds their replacement is disturbing, to say the least.
As Obama gave his farewell speech, many across the political spectrum watched in nostalgia as the first black President of the United States bowed out, giving way to the...entity that is Donald Trump. Of course, 2008 to 2016 signified a period of time where the mistakes of the past were learned from: the US didn't intervene to devastating effect in foreign nations, Guantanamo Bay was closed, and the working class was allowed to flourish.
Yesterday, my almost five-year-old asked me about Donald Trump. Used to hearing me muttering to the radio and amused by his surname (come on, whether you're 5 or 45 you've got to laugh at his surname) she wanted to know exactly who he was.
President-elect Donald Trump has announced his intention to cease, immediately, the apparently dreadful Obama policy of releasing Guantanamo Bay detainees... The next four years promise to be a fairly dictatorial era in human rights terms. At Reprieve, we believe it is all the more important that we protect the most powerless against the powerful.
It's not easy to pin down exactly what art is. The dictionary defines it as the display application and expression of skill. Plato called it the im...
The Women's March is an attempt to create the conditions for different sorts of conversations than the ones that exploit fear and uncertainty and lead to division and social turbulence. It is an attempt towards opening up a space where we can come together, think together, act together for the benefit of us all.
Old Dave - our former PM and possible future Secretary-General of NATO-for all the whining from the Left regarding him, has never had a bunch of women coming out claiming he sexually assaulted them. He has never happily declared to a friend that women would allow him to grab them by the vagina due to his celebrity.
When people didn't believe in her enough, when they doubted her capability and trusted someone with no knowledge whatsoever instead - understand how that felt. How much it knocked our confidence and self-belief. When we speak about this election being about sexism, don't patronise us with all of the reasons as to why we're wrong. Just understand that for so many of us, it was.
