As many of you know, I am moving towards the final stages of my doctorate. I am setting aside the next 100 days to concentrate upon writing up the thesis. Due to the other demands on my time (I am continuing to tutor on the Open University’s W200; W201 and Y186 courses), I feel that it would be best for me to partially suspend Washminster until early August. I will be posting the occasional article – particularly where they relate to the courses I am teaching, or have particular important in relation to practice and procedure in the UK Parliament and US Congress. So please do occasionally pop back to Washminster during this period.
