Look, I'm just going to say it: British kids are a lot cooler than American kids...it's the UK, you know? We listen to grime, we watch the Premier League, we get mashed on a regular basis and have nice haircuts. Something really politically extreme like, for example, white supremacist ideologies, isn't seen as a threat, it's seen as painfully cringe-worthy, socially uncomfortable, and just incredibly dickish.
The election of Trump could seal the fate of the US far longer than his presidency, bringing entrenched divide and rule coupled with economic and global insecurity. Thankfully his chances are slim and falling by the day, but clear knowledge of the destructiveness of his character and vision for the US, make this a protest vote far more hate-filled and dangerous.
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.
