It took a black woman, in the shape of Michelle Obama, to bring some semblance of unity to the Democratic National Convention on its opening day on Monday. Boisterous Bernie Sanders supporters had booed loudly every time Hilary Clinton's name was mentioned from the platform. They even booed when their hero, Bernie Sanders himself, tried to entreat them to support both Hilary and her centrist Vice-Presidential pick Tim Kaine.

Day One of the Democratic Convention

There is lot of interest in Jeremy Corbyn here. Most of the nonsensical British media coverage has not impacted on ordinary Americans and they see him as a progressive insurgent on the Sanders model with Sanders uncanny ability to enthuse idealistic young people.

Why Should We Care How Female Politicians Dress?

Beth Gray | Posted 18.07.2016 | UK Politics

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.

Gender Wars in Politics - Finally Won?

We may also see a woman running the United States by next year. There could not be a sharper contrast between Hillary Clinton and likely rival Donald Trump. If he represents blunt, bombastic machismo, she exudes a calm pragmatism. But what is striking already is how gender is not a playable card any longer. Even for Trump.

We Still Prefer Masculine Leaders: Just Look at Theresa May and Hillary Clinton

Joanna Taylor | Posted 13.07.2016 | UK Politics
Joanna Taylor

Our perceptions of female leaders and political systems are changing very gradually: we must strive at every election for policy over personality. It's in everyone's interests that all honest, committed would-be female politicians have the same access to leadership roles as men so that we can benefit from the Caroline Lucases and Jo Coxes of the world. Please, for the love of God, don't leave our representation to Thatcher, May and Angela Eagle.

The US election is shaping up to be the most divisive in modern history, with the electorate seeing both candidates as equally unpalatable. According to a CNN/ORC opinion poll earlier this month, 57% of the public said they felt negatively about Hillary Clinton, while 59% say they hold unfavourable views about Donald Trump.

Republicans Must Learn From Britain's Mistakes - Before It's Too Late

Nash Riggins

This Brexit vote has got to be a wakeup call for any and all Republicans who are even remotely interested in their own wellbeing. It shouldn't matter how much you claim to despise Hillary Clinton, Democrats, women's rights or universal background checks. Donald Trump's continued demonstrations of economic selfishness and fiscal ineptitude prove beyond a reasonable doubt that he cannot be trusted with America's welfare.

Trump Lied to Republicans About His Muslim-Ban Policy, But the Damage to America's Allies Is Done

Matt Monk | Posted 23.05.2016 | UK Universities & Education
Matt Monk

Islamophobia is a problem in Europe certainly, but Trump's reckless hatred and stupidity is just as worrying for most Europeans. Trump may have retreated from his policy, but it is already set in stone; if the people of America elect Trump this November, they will be the nervously laughing stock of the world.

A plethora of political risks threatens the global economy. One of them is the potential US presidency of Donald Trump.
