Non-Latin America bleg

I am teaching an Intro to Comparative Politics course that begins a week from Monday, and I really need to include a short article (even a newspaper article if it lays everything out clearly--even a good blog post!) on the British elections.  It needs to be understandable for an undergraduate with no prior background.  Any suggestions?

Do you need for this article to also cover the basics of parliamentary democracy?

Greg Weeks 3:59 PM  

No--the textbook and my lectures will do that. Those will also introduce them to the basics of British politics, so perhaps I should not say they have *no* prior knowledge.

Check out some of the comments from my FB post from last week. Someone spelled it out very succinctly.

Greg Weeks 3:33 PM  

No, they explained the part I already knew--I need (and have received some good suggestions) for a discussion of the specific negotiating that went, the different parties working together, etc.

Have you looked at Matthew Shugart's posts over at Fruits and Votes?
