  1. This blog rocks. You are definitely on my RSS lead and I just hope Milliband and co are reading and listening. Funny and evidence based…not that is a combination to reckon with.

  2. Heard your radio interview on the CBC tapestry. It was enlightening and right on! Should say ” North America the Anxious. ” My parents are British and immigrated to America. I think they would agree with you. Looking forward to your book Ruth.
