Why Trump Won't Tear Us Apart (In Britain, At Least)

Steve Ballinger | Posted 07.02.2017 | UK Politics
Steve Ballinger

Stopping Trump will be difficult - he is, after all, the elected President of the United States - and it is largely the job of his opponents on the other side of the Atlantic. Making clear what we think of his policies, and their impact on people in the UK and all over the world, is more achievable. Most importantly, we should be more ambitious in defining that 'we'.

I Was Wrong - America Needs To Protest And Stand Up To Trump And His Muslim Ban

James Barber | Posted 07.02.2017 | UK Politics

How can Donald Trump call himself the 'Leader of the Free World' when he is stripping 134 million Muslims of their freedom to come into the so called 'Centrepiece of the Free World'. I'm sorry to break it to you, but America is no longer free.

If I See One More Post About Trump On Social Media - I Think I'll Explode

I'm mostly writing this because social media has been ruined for me, and many others like me. If I didn't need it for work I would flounce off in a huff (for at least a week) and refuse to look at my timelines ever again.

Last Friday, Donald Trump signed his fourteenth executive order as President, an order purporting to protect American citizens from incoming terror by banning immigrants from high-risk countries from entering the United States.

We Would Stand With You Theresa May, If Only You Wanted Us To

Brittany Dawson | Posted 31.01.2017 | UK Politics

Theresa May must not lie down and allow Trump to trample human rights. After all, in the president's eyes, May must prove herself even more than her male counterparts. So now is the time for her voice to be heard loudly and more supported than ever - we would stand right behind her if only she would stand in front of us.

Letting Trump Visit Leaves Nowhere To Hide

Stephen Mayne

He can't let his defeat in the popular vote sit, picking at the wound endlessly. Let him come, and show he's welcome but his views aren't. There'll be no hiding place when everywhere he looks he finds anger, disgust, and dislike. After all, there's nothing a bully hates more than to be made small while everyone watches on.

In A Post-Truth Society, Does It Matter That The Trump Dossier Is Unverified?

Emma Rosen | Posted 24.01.2017 | UK Politics
Emma Rosen

Buzzfeed's decision flies in the face of journalistic ethics, standards and tradition and is against everything that many in the industry stand for. This explains the mass denouncement of the editorial choice over the unsubstantiated publication by virtually every major news organisation. In practically any other circumstances they would be right to do so.

Time For Trump Town

These are early days. Donald Trump has a serious job to do and we should wish him well in doing it - if only for selfish reasons. Personally, I wanted Hillary to win but that was not to be. It will take time for us all to adapt to the new President and his way of working. But now, like President Obama said at his final press conference, we should be optimistic: "we're going to be OK".

Donald Trump isn't known for keeping his cards close to his chest, but although President-elect Trump has loose lips for most things, education is not one of them. Therefore what little we do know will be key to figuring out what education will look like in America over the next four years.

In truth, there were lines we weren't allowed to cross, not so much because The Star had any particular moral compass or even because the powers-that-be were afraid of getting sued. It was more a matter of sales: there were certain stories people simply didn't want to read.

Donald Trump's ascension to the presidency of the United States and thus the most powerful job on the planet sent shock-waves around the world. His election was a result that opinion polls and many people did not expect, to the point where some believed that the election would be a landslide for Hilary Clinton.
