Yesterday, at the Democratic Party’s National Convention in Philadelphia, Hillary Clinton’s former rival Bernie Sanders put aside any bitterness and proclaimed that she ‘must become the next President of the United States’, going on to say that ‘while Donald Trump is busy insulting one group after another, Hillary Clinton understands that our diversity is one of our greatest strengths’. Hillary also received a glowing and emotional endorsement from Michelle Obama, and with the convention continuing through the rest of the week with speeches from former President Clinton and President Obama, the Democrats are set to put their full weight behind Hillary Clinton, the woman who may well soon make history as the first female President of the United States.

Ad & Wal: Values, duty, sacrifice in apartheid South Africa
by Peter Hain
Hardback £9.99 (RRP £18.99) | eBook £9.99 (RRP £15.99)
 
Former MP and Cabinet minister Peter Hain’s searing and inspiring account of his parents’ battle against the apartheid regime in South Africa during the 1950s and ’60s has been optioned by Fifty One Productions. Due to be filmed on location in South Africa, Hain will serve as executive producer on the project.
Of the news, Hain said: ‘My parents were an ordinary couple who found themselves doing extraordinary things because of their values and sense of duty. At the beginning they reacted to the immorality of apartheid then found themselves targets of a police state, eventually forced to sacrifice everything for their principles. I’m proud their story will appear on screen.’
