The Strange Death of Liberal England - Dangerfield

What do you make of the general thesis?

Only about 100-150 pages in, but it's an interesting read so far. I do see where it's coming from though, and although i've only read the first section about the Parliament Act, I do think Dangerfield's rested a bit too much on that, but we'll see.

I might be doing my extended project for UCAS on the decline of the Liberals or the something about the National Government (or, pretty alternatively, Harold Wilson's or Gordon Brown's premiership) and my tutor told me it'd be an essential if I was going to do either of the first two.

Read The Communist Manifesto last week as a short flight/airport read, about to start A Very British Coup.

Just finished this:


A good read and it has firmed up the more positive perception of Ed I've developed over the last few months. Definitely one of the cleverest politicians, who've had a chance at Number 10, in a long time and much more deserving of the top spot than his brother.
