I can’t vote for that guy. I’d rather vote for Trump than [Biden]. I don’t think he can handle anything. You’re relying entirely on his cabinet. If you want to talk about an individual leader who can communicate, he can’t do that. And we don’t know what the fuck he’ll be like after a year in office.
So, I think it’s important for us to be careful about the language we use, which is why I’ve been critical of Donald Trump. Disparaging women, disparaging hispanics, that’s not a sign of strength. Making fun of disabled people… We’re never going to win elections if we don’t have a more broader unifying message.
I think everybody’s talking about like facts and truth and you know like that ‘We’re here to fact check’ and all of that, that’s the base material of journalism. You cannot have journalism without facts and truth. But if facts and truth were what actually you know sort of moved people’s lives and moved their decision-making like the election would have had a different outcome.
When I first covered [presidential election ] in 2008, I was asking questions for kids around the world, but mainly for myself. I didn’t know the process, I didn’t know how it worked. Now, of course, I’m more schooled on it, but I deal with so much politics in my fashion work and in Hollywood, that I haven’t been as connected this time.
The next General Election isn’t about electing yet another Labour or Tory MP to join the hundreds of other Labour or Tory MPs in London. It will be about electing a candidate who will put solving people’s problems before scoring political points. Someone who will fight for the future of our communities here in Clwyd West.
If we would vote in mass on the more promising ticket, or, if the two are equally bad, would throw out the party that is in, and wait till the next election and then throw out the other party that is in – then, I say, the commercial politician would feel a demand for good government and he would supply it.
Anybody who imagines that an election can be won under these circumstances by banging on about William Ayers and Jeremiah Wright is … to put it mildly … severely under-estimating the electoral importance of pocketbook issues. We conservatives are sending a powerful, inadvertent message with this negative campaign against Barack Obama’s associations and former associations: that we lack a positive agenda of our own and that we don’t care about the economic issues that are worrying American voters.
Loads of my friends are gay, I don’t see myself in any sense as being opposed to gay rights, but I did express a view before the election – which by the way was also expressed by the party but then they changed their mind – that we didn’t support gay marriage which is, I suppose for some, the ultimate destination, but not for everybody.
Jean-Paul Sartre said that France was freer than ever during the German occupation, when people had no choices but one: to collaborate or to resist. I’m not saying there was something good about that system. But the freest people I’ve ever met, or knew about, belonged to that period. For example, Musine Kokalari, an Albanian writer who dared to fight for political pluralism and free elections. She created the first social democratic party, despite knowing the high price she would have to pay.
