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.

Hillary Clinton's Past Is a Testament to Her Character

Daniel Weeks | Posted 05.08.2016 | UK Politics
Daniel Weeks

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.

An Open Letter to US Republicans

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.

Who Wants Billy Flynn as President?

As a Brit living in the United States, I have an up-close but outsider's view of their presidential campaign. What started as a ridiculous joke has become a serious, stark and terrifying reality - Donald Trump COULD be president of the United States, and seemingly no one can hear the little boy shouting that the emperor has no clothes on.

The Trump Threat - Real or Hype?

A plethora of political risks threatens the global economy. One of them is the potential US presidency of Donald Trump. Opinion polls indicate a 46/43 division to the benefit of Hillary Clinton, but she too, is not very popular with voters, as a result of which it is not unthinkable that Trump may overtake her...

Seven Ways Trump Follows in the Footsteps of Ronald Reagan

Simon Phillips-Hughes | Posted 27.04.2016 | UK Politics
Simon Phillips-Hughes

As we enter the general election Trump will increasingly resemble Reagan in any case, for the same negative claims made against him: that he is an extremist, that the White House is no place for a low-brow entertainer, that he is too unpopular with too many. The revival of the US probably rests on how the people react to that view, just as they did some thirty-five years ago.

The Secret of Trump's Success (Is Not What You Think)

Simon Phillips-Hughes | Posted 01.03.2016 | UK Politics
Simon Phillips-Hughes

Spoiler alert: Trump is actually a moderate who has said some tough-guy things to get the party's right to go along with him. A sheep in wolf's clothing. A conservative in campaign style but a 'wet' in wisdom, an entrepreneur doing what entrepreneurs do best: catering to a huge gap in the market.

Next time you'll hear somebody urging to censor free speech out of the fear of giving the platform to hateful views, please point to Donald Trump. How else, if not by allowing someone to speak their mind, would we know that somebody is a complete tool?

Boko Haram may not have produced imagery that has travelled across the media landscape, burning iconic pictures into the minds of those of us in the West. But by interrupting the political process and denying ordinary Nigerians the chance for peace with a delay of even one day, Boko Haram has proven itself just as terrifying.
