For everyone interested in the work of Britain's Parliament; the US Congress; the European Parliament and the French Parlement.
Discuss Practice, Procedure, History and current issues.

Britain may have a long break until the next elections (almost five years to the next General Election, if this autumn legislation is passed to introduce fixed term parliaments - and if the coalition holds together for that long) - though there will be a number of sizeable electoral tests on 5th May 2011 (The referendum on AV; local elections in England, the Scottish Parliamentary election and the Welsh Assembly elections.)
However the 2010 midterms are fast approaching. As in 2008 Washminster will review some of the key seats in both the House and Senate elections.
