Trump v..? 2020 Prediction Map | Sarah Stook

In 2020, Trump will run again. Barring all major catastrophes (yes, that includes his first term), it is without a doubt that Trump will try again. His 2020 re-election campaign is already in the works and judging from both actions and comments on the subject, he intends to be a two-term President. Will he win? […]

From FDR to Obama: Rating the Modern US Presidents | Sarah Stook

From the dour Nixon to smooth Clinton, the Presidents during and since WW2 have been an interesting group. In terms of policy, we have seen how different ideologies have shaped the way that the Presidents have run the nation, and how the nation was affected by those policies. Scholars certainly have their views on the […]

Opinion: Don’t Blame the World, Hillary- Blame Yourself | Sarah Stook

From The One Show (God that was a painful thing to watch) to Andrew Marr, Hillary Clinton has been doing the rounds to promote her new election/post-election memoir, What Happened. Apart from having to relive that awful read (see my review), having Hillary Clinton blaming the world for her problems all week has been somewhat […]

Losing an Election: How the Presidential Nominees Have Failed │ Sarah Stook

In every US election, someone loses. If you include the smaller parties- such as the Greens, Libertarian and the Reform parties, there is more than one. Often, if one is on the opposing side of the candidate, then they will argue the people who have lost the most are the American people. There are reasons […]

Will The Next Republican Candidate Please Stand Up? │ Sarah Stook

In 2024, the 60th Presidential Election will occur. Assuming that President Trump will stand again in 2020 (we have had no reason to believe in the contrary), it will be another seven years before Americans will head to the ballot box to pick their Republican nominee. Harold Wilson once said that ‘a week is a […]

Tim Farron is a perfectly tolerant Christian | Joseph Prebble

When Theresa May announced that she was, with the appropriate consent of Parliament, to call a general election on June the 8th, the political world scrambled to prepare itself for the now seemingly annual democratic marathon. Liberal Democrats leader Tim Farron might well have been the happiest to hear of the election, with a lot […]

No Time For Complacency | Sarah Stook

It’s time. Just a little under a year after Britain flocked to the polls to vote in a once in a generation referendum (take note, Ms. Sturgeon), they will be returning again for another general election. It came, to put it lightly, as a bit of a surprise. Even as Theresa May stepped up outside […]

Trump is the only choice for conservative America | Joseph Prebble

Note: All articles pertaining to the 2016 US elections contain the views of the writer only, and do not reflect any editorial position of The Mallard, whichever has remained neutral. Stay strong. We are nearly there. A final night of speculation, polling and worried faces, and Pepe memes will finally give us the answer that […]

Boundary change: Arbitrary and ill-advised | Daniel Beer

It’s not every week I wake to find myself in stark agreement with the Huffington Post, the Labour Party and the Daily Mirror. Political outlets and organisations which one can usually count on to put forward unreasonable, unrealistic and occasionally downright absurd arguments have, for once, got it absolutely spot on: the current proposals for […]
