I try to ensure that posts on the blog are a mixture of reports on my academic and parliamentary activities and short notes on constitutional and political issues. The latter are designed to be of interest to students and others researching the topics. The utility of these posts is reflected in the frequency with which they are visited.
The site has reached a new scholarly high in that a short article in a forthcoming issue of the journal Policy and Politics addresses the ‘English Question’ and takes as its focus my post on the subject in April of last year. I was invited to pen a short response. The article is by Professor Arthur Aughey of Ulster University and it will be appearing, along with my response, in the April or July issue of the journal.
