    A very good blog and I presented your writing to my students today as course material to study the history of Britain and also your writing style 🙂

      Really? Blimey, Wenqing — I can’t speak for Muz, but I’m honoured! This was one of the more enjoyable posts to write, and I’m really glad it was of some use to you and your students. Out of interest, what sort of history course did you use this in?

      I’d like to say that Simon can speak for me: I am honoured too. I echo all of what Simon said and I am also curious how it was used!
