The 2016 US Presidential election has been a big debating topic in Australia over the last few months. A lot of people I know are wishing for a Trump-Sanders showdown in November. I'm not certain whether it would happen myself, but the possibility is very interesting: a non-politician running as a Republican versus a capital S-Socialist running as a Democrat.
Australia politicians have sometimes tried to massage the egos of their constituents by labelling things as "world class" - universities, public transport systems (hah!), cities, bridges, whatnot. I've always found it a little transparent and needy. If something's so good, why do you need to draw attention to its excellence in such a obviously try-hard way?
