I finished book No 8 in Matthew Harffys Bernicia Chronicles and needed a new series to follow.I am now about halfway through The Morning and The Evening from Ken Follet.Set in the late 900s its just what i was looking for.It is a prequel to his Pillars of the Earth which has just arrived.Very enjoyable imo if you like historical fiction of the period.

If you do read  it, I'd be interested in your thoughts. 

I, too, have read this and whilst I found it to be fairly well balanced in it’s arguments I do have to question some of the examples given. As far as I am concerned the electorate voted and the result found in favour of Brexit. Living in a democracy people therefore should acknowledge the result, however, I was disappointed with some of the arguments raised around the “proroging” of Parliament. If one is to accept the constitutional vote result of Brexit how can the constitutional decision of the Supreme Court be challenged as being unconstitutional? I guess that is for another debate but generally book was well balanced and made interesting reading

I would leave that one to the constitutional experts, many of whom condemned the ruling. Especially Finnis.
