McGrath of Harlow BS: 2020 national election, USA - BIDEN wins Nov 7 (722* d) RE: BS: 2020 national election, USA 01 Oct 20


Nothing to boast about in the British voting system, where the winning party pretty well never gets anywhere near a majority of the votes, typically around 35% of the total vote, and on occasion fewer votes than the runner up. But it is simpler than the way they do it in the States. Mostly by dispensing with any pretensions to democracy when it comes to most things.

But there are far fewer possibilities for unscrupulous local or national politicians to subvert the process, which is the threat looming over America now. And in a real way, looming over the whole world.

As for Biden, whatever flaws he's got, the crucial point is, he's not Trump. I find it virtually impossible to imagine anyone short of Hitler I wouldn't choose over Trump. Boris Johnson, Margaret Thatcher, Nixon...
