Watch Dispatches on Channel 4 this evening at 8pm. Peter Oborne presents a brave expose of the British lobby in the UK. Not that they do anything illegal, just that they should do it in the light. openDemocracy, supported by OurKingdom has published the pamphlet that accompanies the programme. You can read it, and the publishers statement by Tony Curzon Price, oD's Editor-in-Chief, HERE. More on its significance later.

US election: what's at stake for the rest of us?

Our editor-in-chief, Mary Fitzgerald, is on the ground in key battleground states ahead of the US election.

There's never been more at stake. But the pandemic has kept many foreign journalists away. Hundreds of international observers who normally oversee US elections aren't there.

Hear Mary describe what she's seeing and hearing across the country, from regular citizens to social justice activists to right-wing militias arming themselves for election day.

Plus: hear from the journalists behind openDemocracy's latest big 'follow-the-money' investigation, which lifts the lid on how Trump-linked groups have exported their culture wars across the world.

Join us for a free live discussion on Thursday 29 October, 5pm UK time/1pm EDT.

Who is bankrolling Britain's democracy? Which groups shape the stories we see in the press; which voices are silenced, and why? Sign up here to find out.
