England, Do Not Be Afraid

newleftproject.org — Whilst researching for my new e-book, 42 reasons to support Scottish independence , I spent some time looking at historic election results. The answer to my question was three: Since the 1832 Reform Act, I can only find three Prime Ministers who depended on Scottish MPs: Asquith, Wilson and Callaghan.

That's it from me this week (unless something unexpected happens). Have a good weekend, and thank you for following.

Nov 27, 2014

RT @JohnHyde1982: A year ago today Andrew Mitchell lost out on costs for his libel case. Today he lost the case itself. He must hate 27 November. #plebgate

Nov 27, 2014

So, #plebgate not quite over. RT @5RB: Mitting J says not any omission. He deliberately did not make findings on malice.

Nov 27, 2014

On the basis of what has been reported, Very close decision by judge. Could have gone other way until towards end. #plebgate

Nov 27, 2014

Mitchell no doubt thinking that the judge was supposed to be more helpful, but is wisely keeping these thoughts to himself. #plebgate

Nov 27, 2014

(In court now, Mitchell's defence is now formally being surgically stripped. Follow @5RB for gruesome details.) #plebgate

Nov 27, 2014

(Even if the case is not formally over; impossible to see how this is not a defeat for Mitchell.) #plebgate

Nov 27, 2014

RT @Barristerblog: So much for all the silly "Mitting J will back a fellow public schoolboy" talk that we heard a few weeks ago. #plebgate
