It’s started already. There isn’t an election until November but already we’re hearing about the candidates and their efforts to secure backing from various states. I admit to not being overly interested in American politics even though I understand that America has quite an influence over the UK. However from my visits to America, I realised that very few people I met over there (East Coast, West Coast, Great Plains) knew who our Prime Minister is. They couldn’t even name him!
Yet I bet we’re going to hear about the 11 months running up to the elections with a blow-by-blow account of what is happening to various wannabe presidents. Surely we have enough news in our own country without having to hear about America’s elections non-stop?
