I like to be informed about politics around the world. The United States of America are having their primaries. It seems like it is a pre selection of who will lead the Republicans to the next presidential election. It is vaguely interesting, but oh, the overkill by our media about the primaries.
I reckon I speak for the majority here. We are interested, but not so interested that the matter should occupy so much time in our news broadcasts. Its not like we understand the American political system. I am surprised that Americans understand it.
It was only fifty years ago when we referred to England as the Mother Country, yet we get so little British political coverage here, and Britain is still an important place in the bigger scheme of things.
I suppose it is the case that we get such extensive political reporting from the US because it is easy and cheap to do with some of it already all packaged up.
