An outstanding piece from Mr Collins, linking to his 25 audio pieces with slides. It starts with this:
This is a shameless bit of advertising. I have made my first – and possibly last – foray onto YouTube.
The epochal 1918 Representation of the People Act will have its centenary in February 2018. This Act gave the vote to the majority of women for the first time in the UK. It also gave the vote to a far larger number of men than any other kindred Act. It is right that it should be celebrated. But it should be celebrated as a triumph for the principle of democracy – that the Parliamentary vote is a matter of right, not a matter of wealth.
My concern is that it may be celebrated for the wrong reasons. So my videos are a pre-emptive strike.
