Going into mourning following an election might seem strange. However, it's actually quite normal. Election results can be traumatic life events for some. This is what happened when the British people voted to leave the European Union.
I wanted to believe over the course of the US election that somehow my country would learn from Brexit. That they would take notice of the rise in hate crime, the plummeting pound, and the divisions forming within British society.
The palpable feeling today as we digest the result is that we have crossed a line. The world still looks to America as "the Leader of the Free World" and that leader just sent a clear message that misogyny is OK.
He's a tax dodger, a draft dodger, a groper, a misogynist, a racist, an ignoramus and a chancer but, and it's a big but, he has tapped into a rich vein of discontent and like it or loath, he "gets" why millions of Americans are angry and disillusioned with the status quo. That could just be enough to get him into the White House.
Here we are less than a month until voters in the USA take a decision in one of the most unprecedented elections ever to take place in the 'Land of the Free', a decision on the most powerful leader on the planet, a decision that will have global ramifications.
