Conspiracies are comforting, but the Trump Tapes showed their limits

To say that conspiracy theories are popular these days is probably the understatement of the century. You might as well call the rules of time travel in Avengers: Endgame ‘a bit confusing’, or Godzilla ‘rather big’. Studies have suggested that a sizeable proportion of us believe at least one, and with a worldwide pandemic and […]Read More

Refusal to Concede Risks Undermining Trumpism

Despite the incumbent president’s recent loss, Trumpism looks set to continue to dominate the republican party. However, as the President increasingly turns his vicious hyperbole towards the USA’s democratic institutions and structures he risks pushing the party further away from his ideals.  Over the last five years Donald Trump has coerced, seduced and smashed the […]Read More

It is nauseating that Boris Johnson’s government has chosen to endanger this hard won peace for […]Read More

What If It’s a Tie? This US Election Scenario Could

I find US politics fascinating, although I’m sure part of the reason for this is because I am comfortably tucked across the other side of the Atlantic and do not have to live with the daily consequences. I want to present a scenario that is not entirely beyond the realms of possibility, and it could […]Read More

Joe Biden’s VP: The Harris Factor

On Tuesday, Democratic Presidential candidate Joe Biden ended months of TV-pundit speculation, news-outlet ranking and political gossiping. In a Tweet, he announced his selection of Kamala Harris, the junior senator from California and his erstwhile opponent in the party’s primary for the top job as his running mate – a selection that gave his campaign […]Read More

Joe Biden Announces Decision on 2016 Campaign

Throughout this Democratic race, many have speculated that Joe Biden, current Vice President, would announce his run for presidency this year. However, after the recent loss of his son, Beau, to brain cancer, it became possible that he would cease any plans to run. Despite this, he is still being included in all the polls, […]Read More
