The last day of the Democratic Party’s National Conference. Chelsea Clinton will introduce her mum around 2.30, then Hillary Clinton will presumably give the speech of her life at around 3pm.
In other news, the 1% candidate Donald Trump has removed his foot from his mouth long enough to splutter that he was only kidding about getting Russia to spy on American citizens. Too little, too late, according to commentators.
EDIT: Clinton’s final lines, echoed in a tweet from supporter Bernie Sanders:
That is the story of America. And we begin a new chapter tonight.
Yes, the world is watching what we do.
Yes, America’s destiny is ours to choose. So let’s be stronger together.
Looking to the future with courage and confidence.
Building a better tomorrow for our beloved children and our beloved country.
When we do, America will be greater than ever.
Thank you and may God bless the United States of America!
