Biden's Opportunities, Starmer's Chance
A C Grayling examines the options open to both leaders if they are brave enough to recognise the need for radical reform and act on it.
Keir Starmer is an intelligent man, more than capable of seeing the point of parallels. I should like to offer him the following one.
When Biden was elected in 2020 I wrote a piece suggesting that he should use his first hundred days to initiate a set of major reforms: make the electoral system for both Congress and Presidency representative, remove Supreme Court appointments from political hands, and state that he intended to stand down at the end of his term so that no-one could say that these reforms were designed to benefit him personally.
