Hull’s finest – the Class of 2011

Here’s a picture of the latest of Hull’s finest – the British Politics and Legislative Studies (BPLS) students who graduated at the Graduation Ceremony this morning.  This picture shows them assembled – but without me.   I was at the degree ceremony, but then had to go straight to the station to get to Westminster in time for the first meeting of the Joint Committee on the draft House of Lords Bill (see preceding post).  This meant that, for the first time ever, I missed our traditional afternoon departmental reception.  I’ll be arranging tea at the Lords sometime for them, on the assumption, that is, that they missed me.

    Lord Norton,
    One may be inclined to believe tehy missed you. After all we are all drawn here in cyberspace are we not? However, I am quite certain that young graduates starting out in the field with all the insecurities endemic to human beings in that situation truly miss the photographic opportunity. Doubtless your post is a most charitable act for at least one of them — although which one is not always known.

    Going back to your previous post on Erskine May, does it not just relate to HOC procedure, as HOL procedure is covered by the companion?

    • Lord Norton says:

      tory boy: Erskine May covers both Houses. The Companion to the Standing Orders in the Lords is a summary of procedure rather than a detailed study with precedents identified.

    yes, we did miss you! hmm!

    I think there’s someone missing, namely Colton Richards! Unfortunately I was unable to make the reception on campus, as I was having lunch with family. My absence from this picture is an added incentive to take up the offer of tea at the Lords, on the assumption, that is, that Lord Norton misses us.
