In charts: How Donald Trump can still win the US election

In charts: How Donald Trump can still win the US election

On first reading, the data looks dire for Donald Trump tonight.Poll after poll from not only the last few days but weeks and months show the President trailing his Democrat rival Joe Biden nationally, as they prepare to spar this evening in the first 2020 presidential debate. As of September 28, around 50 per cent of Americans plan to vote for Biden in November, compared to 43 per cent siding with Trump, according to  - one of the biggest leads at this point in a presidential campaign.In fact no eventual winner of a US presidential election has gone into the first debate trailing their main...

The only person left untaxed by this tax bombshell is Donald Trump

The only person left untaxed by this tax bombshell is Donald Trump

Throughout the Trump presidency, no issue has been as taxing to interested onlookers as that of the president’s taxes; the only person seemingly left untaxed in all this, both mentally and literally, seems to have been Trump himself.Yet, after that the Donald, an icon of American probity with iron-clad claims on billionaire status, may not have been as generous with the IRS all these years as he ought to have been, went to press, correcting this PR disaster will now surely be front and centre of the president’s agenda. How will Trumpland respond to suggestions in the NYT, of all the...

I got locked out of Twitter for having the ‘wrong’ opinion on Covid

I got locked out of Twitter for having the ‘wrong’ opinion on Covid

I woke yesterday morning to find that I had been locked out of Twitter for “violating our rules against abuse and harassment”. I was dumbfounded. Which of my recent tweets had been abusive or harassed anyone? I glanced down the email to see something I had posted last week in response to yet another We’re All Doomed! report on the BBC news. “How hard is it for people to understand? We WANT students to get the virus. They will speed us towards community immunity. It may not be very far off.”Whether you agree with my tweet or not, it accurately represents the opinion of a number of...

Trump's ban on diversity training is commendable – we should follow suit

Trump's ban on diversity training is commendable – we should follow suit

A few months ago, I was at dinner with some colleagues from the British Library, where I was based for a research project on feminism. The new trans-awareness training course for staff came up. Would I be going?When I said no – and that I did not see how my personal views on matters of gender identity were in any way the business of the library or in need of “training” – eyebrows were raised to the ceiling. These colleagues, thankfully, were able to cope with my iconoclasm and the topic was changed without fall-out. But only just.This was the thin end of the wedge. I saw how exhibition...

Large majority of Swiss reject bid to rein in immigration from EU, says exit poll

Large majority of Swiss reject bid to rein in immigration from EU, says exit poll

Swiss voters overwhelmingly rejected a Eurosceptic party’s attempt to restrict immigration from the EU in a referendum yesterday (on Sunday) seen as a key test of attitudes towards foreigners.The Swiss People’s Party (SVP) called the referendum on scrapping a mutual free movement agreement with the EU. Echoing some of the arguments for Brexit, the Right-wing populist party pushed to take back control of immigration, which it said had become “uncontrolled and excessive”.Switzerland’s population of about 8.2 million includes some 1.4 million EU citizens. About half a million Swiss nationals...

The source of our Covid paranoia? Modern society has forgotten that life is a lottery

The source of our Covid paranoia? Modern society has forgotten that life is a lottery

One constantly hears anecdotes about the elderly – people in their 80s and 90s – who cannot understand the Government’s management of Covid-19. To shut down, indeed apparently to sabotage, large sections of the economy to preserve the lives of people who even without this plague would, sadly, die within months, seems to many in this most to be insane.Many of fewer years who take a calm and philosophical view of life, and death, or know some history feel the same. Life is always precious, but in recent decades the desire to preserve it at all costs has grown as exponentially as any graph of...

MPs have a moral duty to challenge the suspension of our liberties

Remember Al Gore’s “hockey stick” graph? It was, in its day, one of the most alarming depictions of the consequences of twentieth century global warming to reach the public arena, seeming to show that the rise in temperature during the previous hundred years was historically unprecedented and would lead to planetary catastrophe.The diagram wasn’t actually Gore’s invention, of course. He had taken it from apparently reputable scientific sources. But his 2006 film, “An Inconvenient Truth” gave it – and him as a spokesman for the climate change movement – hugely influential mass exposure. What...

Correcting Britain's Vitamin D deficiency could save thousands of lives

Correcting Britain's Vitamin D deficiency could save thousands of lives

As we face six tough months of curfews, isolation and economic misery, with vaccines a distant hope, testing struggling to control the virus, and the hospitalisation rate once again rising, it’s surely time to try anything reasonable to slow the pandemic down. There is one chemical that is known to be safe, known to be needed by many people anyway, known to have a clinically proven track record of helping people fight off respiratory diseases, and is so cheap no big firm is pushing it: vitamin D. It is not , but growing evidence suggests that it might help prevent Covid turning serious in...

China prepares to declare victory in global vaccine race - and assures the world theirs is safe 

In a sterile corridor lined with laboratories, scientists in white hazmat suits drop liquid into small vials with pipettes. Then trays of test-tubes are sealed and packaged into boxes, ready for distribution. This sprawling new facility in south Beijing is already producing thousands of doses per day of a coronavirus vaccine developed by SinoVac, which the Chinese pharmaceutical firm says will be rolled-out across the world early next year.  The Telegraph, along with other media, has been invited to the newly built production facility and quality control labs as part of a publicity blitz...

Far too many of us have no idea just how bad this is going to get

Far too many of us have no idea just how bad this is going to get

I sauntered through the first 34 years of my life without ever even hearing the expression “footfall”. I lived in perfect ignorance of COGS (cost of goods sold) or ROCE (return on capital employed), and never gave the slightest thought to EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation). Embarrassingly, I’m not sure I even knew what an SME (small and medium enterprise) was, until I married one. When I met my husband, he had just started his own SME: a tiny café in Soho which he hoped would eventually become a chain of healthy fast food restaurants. It was the first...

Watch: Trump says 200,000 virus deaths are 'a shame', but alternative was 2.5m deaths

President Donald Trump was asked to comment on the grim milestone reached this week of two-hundred thousand deaths due to COVID-19.Speaking to reporters at the White House, Trump said it was “a shame” that the U.S. had reached the milestone. But he said if his administration hadn't taken all the actions it did, that number would "be substantially more."Trump also responded with his often repeated broadside that China was at fault for the pandemic and argument that the death toll could have been much worse.To watch more videos from The Telegraph,.Related TopicsAdvertisementRelated TopicsWe...

Donald Trump is catching Sleepy Joe napping in his election surge

An American election cycle runs for two years, and longer if you count the fundraising run-up. But an American election doesn’t get going until after the Labor Day holiday on the first Monday in September.The current election cycle has been running for nearly four years – since the morning of 9 November 2016, when a stricken Hillary Clinton conceded to Donald Trump. And it has barely begun. This is why Joe Biden, or at least the handlers who work his Twitter feed and give him his cocoa, should be very worried by the polls.Donald Trump makes so much noise that we miss the stealthy, subtle...

Culture warriors are weaponising language in their bid to dominate British public life

As the last week, “reaction was both positive and divided”, according to The Guardian.Yes, it is a very odd sentence. Of course, those responding to the news might have been divided by the extent of their positivity. Some might have believed the judges’ decision unprecedented in its brilliance and wisdom; others merely satisfied that the best authors had been identified.But this was not, as the report implicitly confessed, the explanation of the division. The response to the shortlist was welcomed by some but criticised by others, because the nomination rules are controversial. Until 2014,...

Lockdown failed. We must follow the Swedish model and learn to live with Covid

Lockdown failed. We must follow the Swedish model and learn to live with Covid

I knew a second lockdown was on the cards before we’d had the first one. In mid-March my team at the University of Edinburgh modelled a lockdown that ended in June and was followed by a slow, initially imperceptible rise in cases over the summer, culminating in a second lockdown in late September.We knew that scenario was likely because we knew that a lockdown is a short-term fix, not a long term solution. However cautiously we relaxed restrictions the time would come when the epidemic started to take off again. In the UK, that time is now.This is not mid-March though. Back then cases and...

With localised lockdowns accumulating like constellations across the country, the fantasy of geo-targeted crackdowns is fading into a return to nationwide restrictions.The so-called proposed “circuit break” is intended to push the pause button on the virus’ circulation to buy more time once again.

Almost one third of Covid deaths in July and August 'primarily caused by other conditions'

Coronavirus was not the main cause of death for nearly one third of recorded Covid-19 victims in July and August, research by Oxford University has found. Analysis shows that around 30 percent of people included in by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) over the summer months had died primarily from other conditions.It means someone who , or even died in a road traffic accident, may have been included in the figures if they had also tested positive for coronavirus at some point, or if doctors believed the virus may have exacerbated their condition.Throughout the entire pandemic, around...

Covid is getting less dangerous. Has No 10 noticed?

Let’s face it: epidemiology has not had a good epidemic. This field of science deals with the causes and spread of diseases through populations and it tries not only to identify how germs are transmitted, but to predict how they will behave on a large scale, even down to how many people they will kill.Unfortunately for them, the epidemiologists getting it wrong. The Government’s advisers began by assuming that Covid was really a lot like flu and that there wasn’t much to be done about it. Then, in mid-March, that changed. Suddenly, they swung towards forecasting doom on an immense scale....

If you knew you had two-and-a-half years to live, how would you choose to spend it? Would you surround yourself with friends and family, and pack your days with as much fun as your failing body could take? Or would you cut yourself off from the outside world, turn away everyone you love, and spend the remainder of your life staring at the same four walls?Two-and-a-half years is the average life expectancy of people in care homes in the UK. In it is 13 months. But these people – the elders of the tribe, for whom of late we have professed so much concern – no longer have any control over how...
