What does History say?

I know many folk have been impressed by the blogging over at Mark Reckons. Mark came to most peoples notice when he did a detailed statistical analysis of the correlation between MPs who held a safe seat and the extent to which they abused the expenses system. This work was picked up by Radio 4 and by Polly Toynbe in the Guardian. Since then Mark has maintain a constant stream of excellent posts. If you've time have a look at his guest piece today on Lib Dem Voice

And while we are looking at stories on Lib Dem Voice I was pleased to see was that Craig Murray has re-joined the Lib Dems. Craig was a YL back in the early 70s before starting on his career which ended as Ambassador to Uzbekistan . His book Murder in Samarkand was recently turned into an excellent Radio 4 play with Craig being played by David Tennant. His principled stand against torture and his confrontation with Jack Straw has done much to exposed New Labour.

I am happy to address most contributions, even the drunken ones if they are coherent, but I am not going to engage with negative sniping from those who do not have the guts to add their names or a consistent on-line identity to their comments. Such postings will not be published.

Anonymous comments with a constructive contribution to make to the discussion, even if it is critical will continue to be posted. Libellous comments or remarks I think may be libellous will not be published.

I will also not tolerate personation so please do not add comments in the name of real people unless you are that person. If you do not like these rules then start your own blog.

Oh, and if you persist in repeating yourself despite the fact I have addressed your point I may get bored and reject your comment.

The views expressed in comments are those of the poster, not me.
