Read my posts which have an historical theme. As Winston Churchill said, explaining the practical application of history to forecasting, “The longer you can look back, the further you can look forward”.

History

Lovely idea from Parliament…

… though shame about the slight sea sick camera effect in this ‘inside Parliament’ movie, one of a series showing people the insides of Parliament and explaining its history.

This one takes a tour around St. Stephen’s Hall, which was the home of the House of Commons until its destruction in a fire in 1834. That means it was the site of the 1-vote margin involved in the passage of the 1832 Great Reform Act, the hook for one of my book chapters.
