A productive year

006With the new edition of Politics UK being published earlier this week, it means that my output over the past twelve months has included four books.  Eminent Parliamentarians was published late last September.  As regular readers will know, I concurred with a number of you that my history of the 1922 Committee, The Voice of the Backbenchers, should be classed as a book.   That was published in April, the same month as the new edition of Parliament in British Politics.

I now have to decide what my next book project will be.  I have four publications forthcoming (one journal article and three book chapters), and have agreed to write two further pieces for forthcoming books.  As for a new book, perhaps I should, at last, get round to a new edition of The Constitution in Flux….

    I think it’s time for you to switch your attention to a political thriller, or maybe parliamentary raunch?

    No reason why the field should be left entirely to Lord Archer and Edwina Currie. You could elaborate the plot with all sorts of dissent, legislative shenanigans and procedural wranglings…

    Have you had a chance to look through the ‘[URL=http://www.publications.parliament.uk/pa/bills/cbill/2013-2014/0097/14097.pdf]lobbying bill[/URL]’? On the basis that the length of a bill is proportional to the lack of clarity of its purpose to achieve its end; is this a new low?

    At the point it told me that

    [QUOTE]“the government” means Her Majesty’s Government in the United Kingdom;
    “Minister of the Crown” has the same meaning as in the Ministers of the Crown Act 1975;
    “permanent secretary” means— (a) a person holding the position of permanent secretary[/QUOTE]

    I feared for the worse
