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.

Forget the stereotype that Asian kids as shy and reserved. I was surprised myself at the level of enthusiastic participation from across the classroom: whilst I was expecting a few outgoing students to speak up for their friends, the majority of the cohort had raised a question, and even two or three at times.

Who Wants Billy Flynn as President?

Caroline Feraday

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.

Let us lift our heads from England's town halls. Let us ignore the governments of Scotland, Wales, and northern Ireland. And let us even, if we can, pay no attention at all to the next mayor of London, one of the greatest cities in the world.

Why the Left Is to Blame for the Rise of Trump

Lauren Fraser | Posted 07.04.2016 | UK Politics
Lauren Fraser

I have no doubt that Trump is not the answer to the very real PC problem we have sweeping across the West. What he is, is a reaction to a problem which is showing no signs of going away. It's time for moderates to get on board and realise that to counter extremists both in politics and in the war zone, we have to speak up and speak our mind.

How Do You Trump the Trump?

Matt Hawkins | Posted 08.03.2016 | UK Politics
Matt Hawkins

Ultimately the saving grace for anti-Trump Republicans might have to come when either Rubio or Cruz drop out of the race, allowing their supporters to combine rather than split their votes. I'm no Republican but for the sake of the tenor of political debate in America, I hope they are able to find an effective counter to the Donald Dynamo soon.

This is not a good time to be in the punditry business. It's as well to recognise the fact: none of us has a clue what's going on. Donald Trump? How did that happen? ... Politics in both the US and Europe is getting ugly. So here's another suggestion: let's put teachers and doctors in charge. They could hardly do any worse than the current lot.

If I Had a Vote in the US Race I'd Vote for Marco Rubio, and for Hope Over Anger

Benedict Rogers | Posted 01.03.2016 | UK Politics
Benedict Rogers

Marco Rubio - for me - is the only contender worth considering. While Trump and Sanders make for an exciting roller-coaster of a race, for the sake of America - and the world - I hope it will be a Rubio-Clinton battle in the end. And if I had a vote, it would go to Rubio, for hope over anger.

Is Social Media Creating an Insult-Culture?

It's so easy to put this rise in insulting language and behaviour down to the decline of western civilisation. Well, it isn't that easy, but many people do it! However, in my view, the rise of the insult is inextricably linked to social media, specifically Twitter.

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.
