Donald Trump breaks with convention, appearing on the first day and using


his wife that is keynote speaker. The nomination moves into the final


phase, but he has had to fight a last rearguard action. Meanwhile,


his wife is a cruised of plagiarism. That your word is your bond and you


do what you say. That your word is your bond, that you say you are --


that you do what you say you will. Will it get in that all-important


female vote? I think most women are like me. You have heard enough of it


through the years that you don't excuse it, and you don't embrace it,


but you push it aside. Also tonight: Argue supporting Jeremy Corbyn? Are


you interested in voting for Jeremy Corbyn?


It certainly feels like summer, but it is no summer of love


The campaign to topple Jeremy Corbyn is underway


I'm not convinced Owen Smith can win an election. Jeremy Corbyn


definitely can't. We will have to disagree.


And the great debate about handing over ARM Holdings to the Japanese.


We speak to the last man to sell a British technology


Good evening from Cleveland, Ohio, for the Republican convention has


been dominated by a row about plagiarism. Mrs Trump accused of


using parts of an old speech, recycling perhaps, that me Shell


Obama made some eight years ago to kick-off the convention as a keynote


last night. In some ways it is just a continuation of things that Mr


Trump has been accused of over the years, blasting his name and brand


onto a range of things he did not entirely create, is perhaps it has


-- perhaps it is that the speeches sound pretty much the same, whoever


wrote them and indeed whoever delivers them. But the words which


have, we understand, infuriated Trump, at least overshadowed a


last-ditch attempt to overturn the nomination and stop it going to him.


We headed to the convention for itself for a bit of the backbiting


and gossip which make up part of convention life here.


The convention normally signifies the high watermark of the


candidate's ascendancy, the moment when the great and the good of the


party of speeches and endorsements. This will be remembered not for who


came Butler who chose to stay away. Three former Republican nominees.


Who is talking? You will find out it is most of Mr Trump's family. It was


kicked off by his supermodel wife. First up, Melania Trump,


introduced by the man himself. All good, until a journalist spots


the similarities with a speech Michelle Obama had made,


some eight years ago. Whenever you have such an amazing


group of people, and the message they were bringing forward,


you've got to find something. They found something


with Melania's speech. I don't think it was plagiarism,


I think she spoke from her heart, and she is not the only woman


who has a child who is worried Many here saw the row


as confected conspiracy. Nevertheless, the blame game has


begun, with Trump said to be furious He has just doused the flames


of the last row, a vote on the floor by some delegates,


they say to change rules But others saw this as an 11th hour


plot to try to stop Trump by one There is still a contingent


of people that are clinging to power in the final hours,


in a desperate manner, trying to pull ridiculous floor


moves, saying it was about rules. Ted Cruz, and the


Never Trump people. Ken Kuching, Nellie from Virginia,


what they did is they attempted a ruse, a guise, a fraud,


and basically the biggest lie in this convention


is that this fight had Is this about the next


time round, then? No, we had things about getting rid


of lawyers on the RNC, things about taking away powers


from the chairman of the RNC, We put in changes to get at the most


outrageous things that Donald Trump rightfully complained


about in the nomination process, we put amendments in to change that,


and they were shot down by the RNC So, is the coup attempt properly


over? Watch what happens when I


asked the former Texas Oh, I think it's always,


it's democracy, this is what we do. Sometimes folks in other places


don't understand that's how democracy works,


but this is nothing out Is he rattled by what


he has heard today? Team Trump were putting a united


front on, his newly appointed running mate Mike Pence centrestage,


the man, rumour has it, Trump regretted the moment


he'd appointed him. So I caught up with the man long


expected to be Trump's running mate, Governor, are you feeling


confident about By the way, we're just next


in New Hampshire, it is over, buddy! Did they get the wrong


VP, sir? I've no idea, you'll have


to ask him. Did he tell you about


that, did he call you? I don't ever talk about my


conversations with Donald. Chris Christie scuttling away on


that question of whether he might have been the right vice


presidential choice. People speak on the main stage tonight, endorsing


Donald Trump as the best man to be president. Let's talk to our guests.


Nice to have both of you. How do you see this? Is it going well for Trump


so far? There are blips and accusations of plagiarism. And the


fact that the speeches went on way too long last night. Some of this is


just convention bumps. They never go perfectly. But I think it is unusual


just how bumpy this has been. The question is, how many people are


paying attention? I think some people are starting to tune in and


they might be confused by what is happening in this election. The Fox


viewing audience know this intimately. The American population


in general is not familiar with it and there were some ins and outs to


the scandal last night. That might be some confusion about who we are


nominating here and what the future is that we are talking about. When


we're talking about who we are nominating, do we think that is now


the end of that last-ditch attempt? We spoke to the plotters last night


and they have said, we are moving on. It was over weeks ago, actually.


It does not mean that the Republican party is unified. One of the great


challenges of the next few days is to demonstrate to the American


people, if you cannot bring a political party together, how can


you bring a nation together? In focus group, the number one


complaint about this election cycle is that it is causing greater


divisiveness. They are angry at both candidates for being so negative. It


is essential for Trump if he is to have a reasonable shot that they


walk away from here, and the religious, economic conservatives


and moderates are in line. That would have been true in the past,


but the way that Trump operates is this idea of yin and yang. When he


criticises one group, another group adores him. Maybe he can get by


without unifying. Hillary Clinton has the same challenge on the


Democratic side. There is still one in four Bernie Sanders voters who


does not want to vote for Hillary Clinton. She cannot win without


bringing them over. Hillary Clinton has been so present in the speeches.


She is like the which enemy in terms of nominees. And you are using


language that they were deuce. It is graphic language to use to describe


an enemy. And she is described as an enemy. It is not my worthy opponent,


the leader of the other party. There used to be a tradition that we are


old enough to remember that you did not name your opponent at all. You


referred to the other party or your challenger. They are not even


running against the Democrats, they are running against Hillary, and I


think the problem is that we have the most unpopular candidates in the


history of modern electoral politics. They are continuing to


drive each other down, and that is turning off a lot of people. Young


people are incredibly disappointed. This is the common than later. You


mention Hillary, and then you mention a placard saying Hillary the


prison. You mention Benghazi, and then you say, why should we try to


stop was when we should be winning them? It appeals to a lower common


than later. The first person to use the word enemy was Hillary Clinton


in one of the only democratic debates. They asked, who is your


enemy? She said, the Republican party. That has never happened


before. It goes both ways. I think that is correct. She said that. I am


not always sympathetic to but she is sometimes at her best when she is


tangling with whom she identifies as her enemy. She is not a uniter


herself. She does best in tough mode. Briefly, we were expecting the


whole convention to be overrun with protest and quite solid angry


protest. You think that is still to come, do you? I do. The helicopters,


I was listening to the police scanner, and they think it is about


one fifth of a mile from the convention hall. They will have a


problem tonight, so there are more police ear, greater concern for


security. It will happen at both conventions. One thing we should say


is, the reason there was so much attention paid to Melania's speech


last night and today is that Melania speaks to women and Republicans need


women. 53% of the US electorate are women, and they need that votes to


really turn this around. We will be hearing about the women's vote


little later in the programme. Back to you.


Thank you very much indeed. So, who will be leader


of the opposition? Shortly after 5 o'clock this


afternoon, we learned that it's not She withdrew, clear that she had


less support from MPs than her rival There's no formal rule that stops


a woman rising to the top of the Labour Party,


it just never seems to happen. And so the great contest


this summer is between It's already underway,


and if you support the aims of the Labour Party,


you can vote in it if you want by paying ?25


and registering by 5pm tomorrow. More expensive than voting


in X Factor, but more important too. Our political editor Nick Watt


is with me. Nick, the campaigns have started


coming the race is on. But do we know so far? Mixed picture for


Jeremy Corbyn. He took a hit today when his attempts to overturn some


strict rules of the NEC, ?25 to be a registered supporter, that stays. A


February cut-off to be a member, that stays. It appears that around


40,000 people may have signed up as registered supporters. The deadline


is tomorrow. We know that because a Labour figure says the party has


taken ?1 million in the last few days will stop divide that by 25 and


you get 40,000. We know that Jeremy Corbyn is trying to reprieve is the


successful tactics he had last year, so lots of union support. A senior


source told me that there are 50 people operating telephones in Unite


offices today, talking to supporters. Momentum, the group


supporting Corbin, they sent out an e-mail to supporters saying, you can


phone up, canvas people from the comfort of your sitting room using


our special application. They devised that last year and it worked


very well. We will discuss this in a few minutes, but if Jeremy Corbyn


wins, does the party split? I sense that the anti-Corbyn forces


since they face a formidable challenge because there was that


YouGov poll that said Jeremy Corbyn was ahead against any candidate. But


I do not sense there is an appetite for a split. There is an appetite


for amongst the plotters amongst them is for a war of attrition. To


keep coming back, to say that he will fail, to come back again, and


interestingly denied there was talk on providing the tradition that was


abandoned by Ed Miliband, to have elections to the Shadow Cabinet, and


what that would mean would be that Jeremy Corbyn would not be able to


appoint his Shadow Cabinet, and remember 176 out of 231 Labour MPs


said they had no confident in him. They would be appointing the Shadow


Cabinet. We will talk about some of that.


Well, I would say that it feels like a right royal battle


for the heart and soul of the Labour party, except many in the party


But what is clear is that a weird democratic experiment is underway.


Given the window of 48 hours in which you can pay,


register and then vote, the whole campaigning effort


by the different sides is directed at getting supporters to sign up.


And all by tomorrow afternoon at five.


A huge mobilisation is underway: grassroots campaigners.


There is the Momentum group, backing Jeremy Corbyn.


And another group called Saving Labour, backing


Secunder Kermani has spent the last two days on the Labour front line.


A warning, his piece contained some comradely language.


Are you interested in voting against Jeremy Corbyn? Across the country


rival Labour factions are battling it out, vying for the backing of


party member is. But the focus now is on ordinary supporters, who have


until tomorrow afternoon to register for a say in the leadership race if


they paid ?25. Jeremy Corbyn is a... Disgrace. Rush-hour in central


London, and Saving Labour are trying to convince people to sign up to


vote out Jeremy Corbyn. Have never known a time like it, this guy is


appalling at every level. I'm Jewish as well, so I am feeling the


anti-Semitism in my own party, and quite frankly now is the time for


people to actually step forward, and I'm thinking of it myself at the


moment, to actually step forward and actually save this party. If Mr


Miliband, and I'm talking about David now, actually thinks anything


of this party now, OK, so his charity job in New York City, get


back and sort this out. But right now we need you to sign up, and get


rid of Corbyn, I know it is along the than that but it is like


chopping the head off a monster. We are campaigning for strong


leadership. You don't think Corbyn is a strong leader? About you like


his values but the could you think it is not going to get support, you


are... It is complicated in that we agree with the politics as a


whole... Then you shouldn't be like they are not getting enough support,


let's support someone who might be stronger? Meanwhile, during a sunny


Sheffield lunch hour, the left-wing campaign group Memorandum are making


the case for Jeremy Corbyn. I followed it online, on Facebook. He


said... He said some good stuff can he wants to hear everybody's posts,


anyway. He stands up for the working class, so that's what I like about


him. I might register. You have got until tomorrow at 5pm. And its ?25?


It is, but it's worth having a say, isn't it? The Labour Party is being


destroyed, and he is part of that distraction. He really is. How can


he hold power with all the time he is sat on the backbenches and never


voted with the Labour Party, practically? He has always voted. He


has been safer on the left wing, you have to have the consensus. It is on


his conscience. Based on either his conscience or the consensus of his


constituents. With Labour's divide running so deep, there was talk of


the split becoming permanent. The supporters, you have lost them in


Scotland. I do understand that. Perhaps we should not be having this


conversation about saving Labour, perhaps we should have a new Labour.


I don't think that could work, in the long-term, totally. I don't


think there is a strong candidate. Trident is a point of difference. Is


that so important you that you would rather lose an election for that? I


am not convinced Owen Smith can win an election. I mean, Jeremy Corbyn


definitely can't. That is where we will have two agree to disagree. A


poll out today suggested Jeremy Corbyn would definitely win the


race, although if trusts the Poles these days? We can only win if we


are in government -- who trusts the polls these days. He does have the


right values. But he is not the right person to get it into


government. The polling would suggest otherwise. Then you should


change the Poles, make people vote for him. I'm going to vote for


Jonah? Yes, because I like him, let him breathe. Let him breathe a


little bit and get his thoughts together. Where was he when we have


the referendum? Did you know that Jeremy Corbyn gave the highest


number of speeches out of any member of the Labour speeches during the EU


referendum? It would be wrong to write off the anti-Corbyn faction.


Unless people like you sign up it won't work. OK, look, I'll sign up.


Especially with a long-term -- summer campaigning ahead to


influence party members, but the Corbyn campaign does inspire a


passion that is harder for moderates to match. Anyone who was not a party


member has an 5pm tomorrow to be able to register to cast a vote for


either side. I'm joined by Stephen Kinnock MP,


who is supporting Owen Smith. And by James Schneider


from the pro-Jeremy Evening to you both. James, if Owen


Smith wins the leadership, will you go out and that the Labour? You will


accept the result? Absolutely, everyone should accept the result,


we have a democratic election and whoever wins get behind who


supported and move forward as a party, absolutely. I have to ask you


the same question that Jeremy Corbyn, Steve? I will be continued


to be honoured to serve my constituents from the backbenches. I


have voted in favour of vote of no-confidence in Germany, that means


I could not possibly serve on the front bench, though I would likely


be invited to do so. Nick Watt, our political editor, said earlier that


the plan might be for a war of attrition against Jeremy Corbyn if


he wins, as seems likely. An attempt to get Shadow Cabinet elections,


which would show him with a Shadow Cabinet he doesn't really want.


Would you serve in the Shadow Cabinet if there were elected Shadow


Cabinet members? I think it is a real struggle to serve somebody


where you have actually voted that you have no confidence in their


leadership. But I don't want as they collate about that. I want to say is


that we now have Owen Smith as a very talented politician coming


forward with the courage to stand up and save the Labour Party. And I'm


absolutely convinced that over the coming months we will see the


opinion of the membership swinging behind Owen, precisely because if we


don't have a new leader we cannot form a credible opposition. If you


can't form a front bench you don't function as a credible opposition.


This is about saving our democracy as much about saving the Labour


Party poster the war of attrition, some people have their head in their


hands in despair at the idea that to be resolved, and we just


face, essentially, a continual battle within the opposition, rather


than a battle between the opposition and the government. Yes, I find the


idea of a war of attrition extremely disappointing. What we need to see


at the end of the leadership election is as many MPs as possible


working behind the leader, whichever one is elected, and also working


with the party members who stop we are now the largest left of centre


party in Europe. It will increase I think after membership opens again.


40,000 a or something. See if the registered supporters want to join.


Momentum have been making lots of phone calls, lots of interest. When


it do is make an asset out of our membership from that may have. But


you will oppose as vigorously as you can MPs voting for the Shadow


Cabinet, I assume, because that would just showed of the leader with


a Shadow Cabinet who disagree with improbably on everything. That is


something that would have to go through party conferences, not


something I have thought about. Can I ask you about Owen Smith? You


think he will win. In his background, I know the times are


reporting on this tomorrow, he was a lobbyist, he served for Pfizer, the


American pharmaceutical country. Will that be held against him? No,


because what Owen represents is a new chapter, a fresh start for the


party. He entered Parliament in 2010, he is not brown eyed, Labour


light -- Blairite, he did his lunch from his constituency. That is where


he has lived his politics and learned his politics. He has Labour


values and he has had the coach -- the courage and determination to


stand in what is a difficult time for our party and I'm convinced the


membership will get behind him because he has the values and


determination we need to win. You know his position on the private


health care in the NHS is what? What is his position on that now? Owen


has come out and said very clearly that we need things like a new deal


for Britain, ?200 billion to invest in our working class in stop private


health care in the NHS, do you know what his view is? Owen is a


Bevan-ite, he supports the NHS free at the point of delivery. He will


stand behind that. We will potentially get back to that. Can I


ask you...? . Jeremy Corbyn's position is on that? We have known


that quite some time! The party will declare UDI, they will then get the


money that the state gets the opposition, they become the


opposition in parliament, they get the money that the opposition get in


Parliament. That would leave you or your side, your residual Labour


Party, you could have all the people on the streets, but it leaves your


residual Labour Party in some trouble, doesn't it? I don't think


that is a very helpful hypothetical, we have a leadership election that


will be about policies and ideas, then afterwards we need to have


members who seem to overwhelmingly support Corbyn and the MPs need to


talk and many to understand what one another's positions are. I think


there has been too little so far of the MPs understanding the direction


that the members want to take on how they wish to transform the party. We


have to remember it is not like Labour is in difficulty now. We have


had two bad general election defeat. There is a crisis for social


democracy across the Western Road and we need to have a new model


party fit for the 20th century -- 21st century, and we need to hear a


lock knife that getting through to MPs. As that message does get


through and MPs do respect the democratic manga -- mandate that


hopefully Jeremy Corbyn will win again we hopefully would have these


discussions again. Can you tell me, Stephen Kinnock, you have not been


in any conversations about such a scenario, are plotting a proper


trajectory would be if it was necessary? Absolutely, and I can


tell you I joined the Labour Party in 1985. You have not had any


conversations about the party splitting? No, there was only one


Labour Party, it is the party I believe it is the one I joined. It


believes in gaining power for working people through a


Parliamentary democracy. We knows you can't do that when you have a


leader who has lost the confidence of the Parliamentary Labour Party.


If you have that leader, what happens? Those of us who have given


a motion of no-confidence will be honoured to serve from the


backbenches, and it will be up to the leader to see how he forms a


credible opposition. I see it a very difficult challenge him to face, but


what I also knows that we now Owen Smith in place, the party unites


behind him and we will win this. It will be an interesting summer. Thank


you both very much. When we voted for Brexit four weeks


ago, was Britain taking a stand not just against the EU,


but against globalisation We have had one of the more


internationalised economies in Europe; we rely more than most


on foreign investment, We're a big player in international


diplomacy and law. Many Brexit supporters said Britain


would be more outward if we left the EU, looking beyond


Europe to the world. Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson


reiterated that goal I want us to reshape


Britain's profile as an even greater global nation,


a Britain that is more active, more outward-facing,


more energetic on the world stage Of course,


some voters want less globalisation And the Foreign Secretary's


sentiment there makes the proposed Japanese takeover of ARM Holdings


a particularly One of Britain's champion tech


companies. There is a live debate


as to whether this kind Some welcome it as proof that


Britain is still there, integrating But if we choose to obstruct it,


what does it say about Well, I'm joined by Mike Lynch,


an entrepreneur and the co-founder Autonomy was sold to Hewlett-Packard


for $11 billion dollars in 2011. A very good evening to you. Why did


you feel you needed to sell Autonomy, and didn't keep running it


as an autonomous British company? One of the great myths about a


British company is that under the rules of the UK stuck each change,


the board can't stop it. Unlike in America where have poison and


things, if someone comes along and offers you a nice premium above the


normal amount, 50%, either the company gets hold of you are no


longer in charge! It is a complete myth that there was a choice, there


was no choice when the premium gets so high. When Autonomy was sold, and


it was painful, they paid a lot more than most people think the company


was probably worth. Is it good for Britain to sell something before it


is at a price that is, you know, a good price come because we get the


money? Or is it bad the Bit On The Side things, even at a good price?


Actually in technology, these mark-ups are normal, so we don't


have that many technology companies in the UK, so we're used to seeing


20%, 30%, and actually 50% is a normal price in technology. These


are normal pricings. But ARM did incredibly well, going from a


start-up up to ?24 billion sale. If you are asking what happens to


the British input to this company, the staff, the brainpower, the


institutional history, that company you sold, Autonomy, where is


everyone who was involved in Autonomy? Are the unemployed, do


they have jobs, has science been harmed? One aspect of technology is


the people. They went, they went to HP, they left HP and now there are a


large number of companies that they have gone and started. I was


counting up the ones that I know of, and they are worth over ?1 billion


already. It didn't do us any harm? I don't think so, but I am optimistic


about the ARM deal, because the Japanese entrepreneur is a


visionary. ARM is a visionary company and I think this one will


work. Even if it doesn't, I think you would have a load of wonderfully


talented people in the UK starting new businesses. The problem is not


with the giants that gets sold at amazing prices, it is when our


wonderfully clever companies get sold at 100 million. When ARM leave


the stock exchange, there is nothing to replace it. That is the problem.


You would not stop the ARM sale at this point. If the Japanese want to


buy it, you would not get in the way. If investors know that it won't


be sold to someone, that trickles all the way down. Your worries about


smaller companies, and what is it about them that stops them growing


into ARM? The London stock exchange does not function well for tech


businesses. They get to ?100 billion, someone makes an offer, and


the people who have invested and done the work think, I cannot list


it in London. We have the biggest stock exchange in Europe, why not?


If you were a hard-working FTSE 100 fund manager, you need to know about


retail, or oil and so on, and there is one software company, so you


don't know much about it. So there is a critical mass. Yellow might


guess, if we can get a few of the companies to list, the virtual


circle kicks in and hopefully we will have billion-dollar tech


businesses listed in London. One thing you'll hear a lot


between now and November is that the female vote


is very important. Apart from women being half


the population, obviously. It's firstly that women's turnout


exceeds men's in the States. Have a look at this graph -


it shows every presidential election since 1980,


the female turnout in purple higher But there's also this:


since Bill Clinton won in 1992, women have always preferred


the Democratic nominee at every But currying favour with women


is tricky for Mr Trump. According to the latest Pew research


poll, in a head to head between Hillary Clinton


and Donald Trump, women would go Katty Kay has been


finding out for us. You call women you don't


like fat pigs, dogs, Donald Trump's rhetoric


towards women has become a flash point in a presidential election


that will pit a man against a woman. It's said to be the most


gender-driven election in US history, with Hillary Clinton


the first ever female nominee The only card she has


is the woman's card. If talking about these issues


is playing the woman's The biggest reason the two


candidates are carefully courting women in this campaign is that women


will control who wins More women vote in America than men,


and research shows they have decided Donald Trump is currently polling


worse with women than any presidential candidate since 1972,


but many women inside the Republican One high-profile supporter


on Capitol Hill is Congresswoman When he stood up there in the debate


and made a not very subtle reference to the size of his penis,


I watched that and, as a mother of four children,


I thought, I don't think I want my young daughter


watching this on television. And those are the things


you look at and say, Whether it was working in a male


dominated profession or here in Washington,


you have people that say inappropriate things,


and I think most women are like me. You have heard enough of it


through the years that And you don't embrace it,


but you push it aside. The women Trump really needs to win


over live in the suburbs of swing This is where this election


will be decided. It's hard to believe that this


sleepy neighbourhood is the front line in the battle for the White


House. But if you are a college educated,


white, single woman living in a suburb of Philadelphia


like this, you are the hottest At a social event for


the nonpartisan League of Women Voters in Philadelphia,


we met Laura, Suzanne and Kelly. What are the things that matter to


you from a presidential candidate? I think it is important to discuss


the economy, to discuss It is really important


to discuss education. I am looking to make sure that


everyone has access to health care, to quality education,


that income inequality, if we don't What you think about the tone


of this election campaign? It is the language that we haven't


heard really overtly in decades, and it is as if people have been


given permission now, because of the level of vitriol


in the discourse, to say those things out loud,


and it's very troubling. Millions of women did vote


for Trump in the primaries. She will be a Pennsylvania


delegate for Trump at Lynn owns a gardening business


and likes Trump's views on trade. I think he will do the best job


to keep us safe, and to try And he definitely knows how


to run a business. Beyond the economy, the attacks


in Orlando shook America We are going to go to Philadelphia,


and we're going to win in November. Lynn is clearly not moved


by the historic nature of Hillary Clinton's candidacy,


but for many American women, the possibility of putting a woman


in the White House after 44 male Is it important for you that she is


a woman and would be Of course it is, you can't not see


that, it is so important. The campaign has thrown up


an interesting phenomenon - a generation gap among female


voters. Older women seem to support Clinton


because they urgently want Younger women tend to feel confident


that they are going to get a female president at some point


in their lifetime, they are just not sure they want it


to be Hillary Clinton. Amy Klobuchar, a Democratic senator


from Minnesota does think that Hillary Clinton will successfully


reach younger voters. You have a new generation that


did not see her in those roles, and many of them were hardly voting


when she was Secretary of State, so you have that issue,


and she needs to reintroduce herself in a non-primary setting


when it is her versus Trump. Loudoun County in Northern Virginia


is a key swing district and a reliable bellwether


for the state. Women here are a must-win


for Clinton and for Trump. So you are going to


lunge, fly and back up. This woman runs a gym


and is a classic swing voter - economically Conservative


but socially liberal. She has voted both Republican


and Democrat in the past and is struggling with


who to vote for this year. We need to regulate the economics


in this country more. That is probably my


draw to Donald Trump. He is a businessman,


he has the economic background and he has made a successful


business of it. For foreign policy background,


I am drawn to Hillary Clinton. I trust someone who has sat


at the table and held I am torn between being


a businesswoman and being a woman. Of course, no one knows precisely


how many women will vote or which candidate they will vote


for, if we did, we could say already What we do know is that women


will decide who lives in the White House after Barack Obama,


whether it is America's 45th male The British people have spoken, and


the answer is... I love this country, and I feel


honoured to have served it. A political landscape


changed for ever. I know that virtually none


of you have ever done The Scottish Parliament


should have the right Exactly one month after


the UK's momentous vote... Brexit means Brexit,
