The Congressional Record
It's no longer necessary to travel great distances to read the Congressional Record. [The US equivalent of 'Hansard'].
The British Library holds a large collection (for full details of the British Library's holding of US documents download the PDF from http://www.bl.uk/reshelp/findhelprestype/offpubs/guides/usgov/unitedstates.pdf. ) - and it is available in many libraries in the USA. However the costs of talking a train to London have just gone up again - and flying to Washington DC - is a little expensive (however much I would love to do that on a more frequent basis!)
An experienced lecturer, tutor & researcher with practical experience of working in the UK and European Parliaments.
I have a keen academic and practical interest in the workings of both the UK Parliament and the US Congress.
Over the years I have broadcast on both UK & US Politics for BBC local radio stations.
