2024 will be shaped by three big elections: the general election in the UK, elections to the European Parliament, and the third which officially gets underway tonight —the race to become the 47th president of the United States.

I’ll be giving you a few key points ahead of each twist and turn to help you cut through the noise and have some interesting things to say to people who might not be tuning in at all.
