Understanding the US Election with Gary Younge

Guardian Masterclass at the nice new bright shiny Guardian offices overlooking the Regents Canal.

I have been a fan of Gary Younge’s journalism for a long time now.

We got his view on how things got to where they are now and what happens next. His caveat was that neither he nor anybody else had been right up ’til now and that anything could happen.

The usual problem with these type of events occurred. When he trow it open to questions it was primarily people trying to show how clever they were rather than trying to get any more information from him. Usually it is only men that do this, but this time it was the women as well.

For what its worth he thinks that Hillary Clinton beats Donald Trump in a race with low turnout.
