Republicans For Hillary

As Donald Trump fails to get members of his own party to vote for him are we starting to see the beginnings of a landslide victory for Clinton in November? With a fractured and divided party that are not able to come together behind their candidate, the situation looks like it can only benefit the Democratic nominee whom I am sure will welcome the endorsements of any former Republican Presidents with open arms.

An Englishman in the Dark: Musings on the Next President of the United States

I'll hold my hands up and admit it. I'm no fan of Hillary Clinton. Barring a massive shift in opinion, she's going to be the Democrats' nomination for the next U.S. President. But as much as I find her unconvincing, I'm not going to write about the Democrat race because we already know the result. Sorry Bernie Sanders, but unless Hillary falls under a bus, you're not getting it.

Everyone Hates Mitt Romney

Even Romney can spot that inequality is the current cause célèbre. However shoehorning a man who once said "corporations are people" into Russell Brand's "doyen of the downtrodden" plimsolls will be a Sisyphean task. It would be easier for Donald Trump to run as an African-American, or Hillary as a man.

US Mid-Terms - A Congressional Brain Drain

The 2014 Mid-Term Elections is not just about control of Congress. No matter which party wins, we will all be losers. Due to an unprecedented amount of retirements from both parties this year the US Congress is losing a tremendous amount of experience, knowledge and ability to get things done.

Denying Climate Change Is Worse Than Spreading The Usual Kind Of Conspiracy Theory: It Costs Lives

Rejected and ridiculed by the rest of us, conspiracy theorists tend to hide away on internet chat forums where they blather on about the collapse of 7 World Trade Center, the rise of the Illuminati or the omnipresence of Mossad. Not the climate-change deniers. Unlike Israel's intelligence agency, they really do seem to be omnipresent these days.

The Week That Was: A Small but Proud Island

There is absolutely nothing like someone criticising the British to bring the British together. Remember just before the Olympics last year, when we were all still convinced it was going to be a total flop, and then US presidential candidate Mitt Romney came over, essentially said the same thing, and, well, we all went a little nuts? Fast forward a year and a bit, and with Cameron licking his wounds over his Syria Commons defeat, one of Vladimir Putin's senior aides steps in with a nicely timed insult, and we're lining up behind the PM to defend our glorious nation.

Obama's Crisis of Trust

As the saying goes "presidential candidates campaign in poetry and if they are lucky enough to win, they govern in prose". Presidential Candidate Barack Obama was especially good at campaigning in poetry. Perhaps that is why, even though he has won re-election for a second term, he is unwilling to dismantle his campaign appartus and get into the down and dirty, nitty-gritty work of governing in hard edged well disciplined prose.
