Alison Loat graciously passed along the Ned Franks essay she noted a couple times last week and now Prof. Franks has graciously passed along his blessing to post that essay for wider consumption. You can download it here.
In additions to Franks’ own impressions, he looks closely at how often Parliament has been sitting, how successful it has been in passing legislation, and how rapidly its membership has changed in recent years, with various observations about how Parliament, as a community in and of itself, has changed over the last several decades. A rather necessary read if you’re at all interested in the current discussion.
