Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

_You vote for your Presidential candidates in the US in a way we don't do here - we (party members) vote for our candidates to stand as MPs and Assembly Members but we don't vote for who should be Prime Minister or Leader of the Party. _

But not every party member can stand for election as prospective MP candidate, can they? The party vets members and proposes a short list.

American primaries (yes, also for Congresspeople, and state legislators) are, on paper, totally open.

The brainless should not be in banking. — Willem Buitler
