  1. The State of the Presidential Debate - The New Yorker

    Interesting history of the debates and how they came to be what they are. (via @antimega)

  2. They Could Have Picked… (London Review of Books)

    Eliot Weinberger on all the Republican presidential candidates other than Trump. At this point it’s become easy to forget that they were *all* nutjobs. Still, makes me thankful to live in the UK.

  3. Who Are All These Trump Supporters? - The New Yorker

    A good read by George Saunders. “What unites these stories is what I came to think of as usurpation anxiety syndrome—the feeling that one is, or is about to be, scooped, overrun, or taken advantage of by some Other with questionable intentions.”

  4. Thoughts on the sociology of Brexit - Political Economy Research Centre

    Another good read on understandable reasons why people have voted for Out. (via @tomskitomski)

  5. ‘If you’ve got money, you vote in … if you haven’t got money, you vote out’ | Politics | The Guardian

    A good read for getting beyond “Out voters are all racists!” (via @tomskitomski)

  6. Nigel’s Against the World (London Review of Books)

    I’ve mostly been ignoring EU referendum stuff but this is quite good on the things we don’t really know about what happens if we leave.

  7. Coalition calculator - General Election 2015, FT.com

    Simple and clear. Nice. (via @AftertheFloodco)

  8. James Meek · Why are you still here?: Who owns Grimsby? · LRB 23 April 2015

    A long, good piece from Grimsby on its history, its industries and its general election candidates. Lots of things relevant to the rest of the country too of course.

  9. Mr. Miller Doesn’t Go to Washington - Matt Miller - POLITICO Magazine

    “A candidate’s memoir.” Being a candidate sounds like even less fun than I ever thought it would be.

  10. French expats to get their own MPs | World news | The Guardian

    That’s interesting, dividing the world outside France into 11 constituencies, with an MP for each representing French expats living there.

  11. The FactCheck Blog - FactCheck: How does the world rank FPTP vs AV?

    First Past The Post is mainly used by ex-British colonies. “What does seem worth noting however is that not one European country, apart from the UK, uses FPTP.” (via @JamesWallis)

  12. Live blogging the general election | Media | The Guardian

    I think this was the most useful, interesting, to-the-point, immediate, high-signal, and simply best news media I’ve experienced in a long, long time. (via Simon Willison)

  13. Mr Brown Goes to the Palace « London Review Blog

    John Lanchester’s started posting daily about the general election (if you click his name, that page also has an RSS feed just for him).

  14. Vote for Policies - Vote for policies, not personalities!

    I should be mostly voting Green apparently, which doesn’t hugely surprise me.

  15. Welcome To The North » A whole lot of nothing

    A transcript of an interview with Doncaster’s new mayor, whose election manifesto might as well have been written by people who post the BBC’s Have Your Say comments. (via Haddock)

  16. The Straight Choice | The election leaflet project

    I’m slightly unsure about the “why” of this project but it has a great pedigree so I’m sure it will be a Good Thing.

  17. BarbicanTalk.com :: View topic - Has anyone else received the faulty postal vote forms?

    This all sounds a bit dodgy, in the City of London’s bizarre version of democracy.

  18. Barack Obama: How He Did It | Newsweek Politics: Campaign 2008 | Newsweek.com

    A series of seven articles about the campaigns. Worth a long read. (via Kottke)

  19. Vote Match

    Help to decide who to vote for in the London elections. For me it says: Paddick, Livingstone, Left List, Greens… Still hard to decide. (via Haddock)
