    According to some we only have to worry about politics for ... hmmm 22 more days and then all our worries will be over.

    However, American politics is normally in a state of hostility and intransigence. It is only in times of an external threat that the politics take a back seat and the good of the country becomes the prime directive.

    As an Englishman, shouldn't your deep concern be for the political future of England and the charlatans that call themselves members of parliament?
