So far, so everyday - but behind the finger-jabbing, fake smiles and odd excruciating faux-pas lurks far-right National Front 6

November 18, 2016 7:35 PM ‘The World’s Women Lost to an Isolationist America’: Views From India

A common European army would make so much more sense politically and be more cost-effective as well. We need to emancipate from the U.S. and shape our own, independent foreign and security policy. A Trump presidency could drive this emancipation. Likewise, the protectionist economic agenda bears the potential for companies moving from the U.S. to Europe 19

Brexit remainers shouldn't be bitter - nobody's achieved more than Nigel.

If she really wanted to, however, Mrs May could have found 47

The billionaire is still exaggerating, generalizing, blaming and tweeting. Donald Trump did what president-elects do: an extended sit-down interview with the country’s most venerated television news magazine show. But his Sunday night sit-down on "60 Minutes" did little to clear up the opacity of what his first 100 days in the White House, never mind the rest of his term, will look like from a policy 22

November 7, 2016 8:25 PM How to make sense of what's happening as polls close on election night

WASHINGTON — In the race for president of the United States, everyone's vote counts. But some count more than others. That fact of American democracy is never more obvious on Election Day, when the president and vice president are elected state-by-state under systems that change from county-by-county or even precinct-by-precinct. By the end of the night 37
