What a bunch of spineless cowards they are. A year ago, just about every senior US Republican was calling Donald Trump unhinged, dangerous and unfit to be president. Now they either look the other way or make lame excuses as he demonstrates daily how right they were.

Did anyone ever think that Bill Clinton, perhaps the greatest politician of our time, even rivaling LBJ, would ever go "gently into that good night"? WJC now seems to be in his element, relishing the fact that GOP hitman-in-chief Karl Rove has thrown down his chain-mailed gauntlet and gone after his beloved Hillary, questioning her health and ability to serve as president.

Just as when Tory MP, David Davies called plans to legalise gay marriage "barking mad", then tried to justify his homophobia by explaining he hadn't had "diversity training", this newest development in the American abortion debate would be laughable if it wasn't so horrifying.

It does seem so easy for many organisations to default to corporate speak - presumably because it acts as a kind of security blanket in what seems to be an increasingly hostile world. But then I thought if the words have no meaning why bother to speak in the first place?

Unlike in the UK, where you have viable alternatives to the two prevailing parties (I am particularly enamoured with the Monster Raving Loony Party), the Republicans and Democrats in America have created high petition thresholds for ballot access that make it next to impossible for third parties to compete.
