Trump Is the Ultimate Reality TV Villain

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.

Republicans Must Learn From Britain's Mistakes - Before It's Too Late

Nash Riggins

This Brexit vote has got to be a wakeup call for any and all Republicans who are even remotely interested in their own wellbeing. It shouldn't matter how much you claim to despise Hillary Clinton, Democrats, women's rights or universal background checks. Donald Trump's continued demonstrations of economic selfishness and fiscal ineptitude prove beyond a reasonable doubt that he cannot be trusted with America's welfare.

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.

Sanders Might Not Win the Battle, But He's Won the War

Matt Hawkins | Posted 10.04.2016 | UK Politics

Like Obama before him Sanders has fundamentally changed the way campaigning is done and enfranchised a whole community of people who will never again be satisfied with only having a voice every time a politician needs their vote at election. He has successfully raised awareness of the crooked nature of the political system and awakened Americans to the possibility of much bigger change than that being offered by Clinton.

We Owe Britain Better Than to Try to Ban Donald Trump

Alan Grant | Posted 14.12.2015 | UK Politics
Alan Grant

Essentially, the desire to ban Mr Trump says nothing about him and says everything about the signatories. It's not that we owe him and his unconvincing hairpiece a single damn thing, we owe him no respect nor do we owe him any pleasantries... However, we do owe centuries of well-developed British principles and traditions, built on free speech and robust debate, better than taking the easy way out.

An Englishman in the Dark: Musings on the Next President of the United States

Jonathan Arnott | Posted 11.12.2015 | UK Politics
Jonathan Arnott

I'll hold my hands up and admit it. I'm no fan of Hillary Clinton. Barring a massive shift in opinion, she's going to be the Democrats' nomination for the next U.S. President. But as much as I find her unconvincing, I'm not going to write about the Democrat race because we already know the result. Sorry Bernie Sanders, but unless Hillary falls under a bus, you're not getting it.
