This autumn we’re travelling around the UK and along the US Presidential Election Campaign Trail listening to voters, journalists and politicians. Inspired by Hunter S Thompson’s 1972 campaign diaries, we are confronting the West’s burgeoning nationalism, examining what has brought us here and where we are heading.
