Democracy Day

To commemorate the anniversary of the De Montfort Parliament (arguably the first in the UK) the BBC are running democracy season.  I have mentioned bits of it before but suffice to say IPlayer (radio and TV) will have plenty of interesting programmes for politicos over the next week or so.

in addition the BBC has compiled a very interesting set of articles on the BBC ‘Taking Liberties’ webpage

This is one to browse and enjoy at your leisure. Not all of it is directly relevant to the syllabus but it is interesting particularly as extension material.
