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.
Retired (save for presenting a show on Spectrumonair Internet Radio). An experienced lecturer, tutor and 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 British and US Politics for BBC local radio stations and presented Platform:MK and Heritage:MK on a Milton Keynes Community Radio Station. I will be presenting "PPS" a programme about the process of decision making and legislating in the UK, US & around the world on Spectrumonair from March 2021
