Trump Is the Ultimate Reality TV Villain

Seb Reilly | Posted 19.10.2016 | UK Politics
Seb Reilly

As I'm not a US citizen, I hold no political affiliation with either Democrats or Republicans. I cannot vote in the election, all I can do is observe. Either the US will continue the forward step taken with Barack Obama and put a woman in the Oval Office for the first time, or it will take a huge leap back by electing a spray-tanned failed businessman who lies constantly. Whichever way it goes, I will be watching.

After This Election, Things Will Only Get Worse in America

For what seems like an eternity, Donald Trump has been protected by an invisible and seemingly-impenetrable forcefield. The stream of generalisations and slurs that would have ended the campaign of any other politician months ago have become a tedious habit of his, with astonishingly minimal consequences on his capacity to fight for the presidency.

The Race For The White House Is Moving At Breakneck Speed - But It's Far From Won

Right now, the Presidential Election race is moving at breakneck speed. Relations between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton had already soured so much they didn't shake hands at the start of the debate, preferring instead to smile flintily at each other before parting to wave at their massed rows of family and supporters. But neither is yet out of the race.

If Nigel Farage Is Right About Men's Locker Room Conversation, Then Why Is He Not Fighting Alongside Feminists?

Lisa Clarke | Posted 11.10.2016 | UK Politics
Lisa Clarke

Nigel Farage and Donald Trump are not just any man in any private locker room, they are powerful men of influence who may be able to enforce law and who already influence our culture. When words like this are used and not acknowledged as being dangerous, women are put at greater risk. Risk of assault, of rape, of not being asked for consent and not being heard when they say no. If you are saying this is commonplace then why do you not understand why we need change? Why are you not angry and fearful for the 50% of society put at risk by this attitude?

The American Presidency: Has The Institution Lost Sight Of What It Really Means To Be The Executive?

Sherina Rathor | Posted 03.10.2016 | UK Universities & Education
Sherina Rathor

It truly does seem as if the institution has lost sight of its original intentions and that it has become more political and less savoury. The Presidency should not just be about policy, but policy change. It should not just be about carrying on prior or personal agendas, but it should be about pioneering and gearing up the next generation. The aim should be positive, innovative and inspiring.

Is Ivanka Trump Distorting Feminism?

Dee Greenwood | Posted 13.09.2016 | UK Politics
Dee Greenwood

Yes Ivanka, women work, that is a right we already have in most of the world. And while it never hurts to celebrate that, given her huge influence on a world stage, I think she could probably do with turning to page two in her 'Feminism for Dummies' book.

The Alt-Right: Why It Won't Take Off In The UK

Sam White

Look, I'm just going to say it: British kids are a lot cooler than American'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.

Brexit and Trump? Two Protest Votes With Completely Different Outcomes

Naveen Saini | Posted 12.08.2016 | UK Universities & Education
Naveen Saini

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.
