Washminster intends to enjoy this holiday weekend (OK, I'm in England, where 4th July isn't officially celebrated - something to do with the fact that it commemorates the repudiation of rule from London by American colonists). However, as I think they did the right thing, and I have a great affection for my American friends - I will join in the festivities.
Therefore, Washminster will not be appearing until the early hours of Tuesday 5th July.
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
