Alex Bolton and John Loony will win in addition to the bragging rights copies of what’s set to be the political best seller of 2016 which has just been published. This is the follow up to the 2015 hit “Sex, Lies and the Ballot Box” called imaginatively “More Sex, Lies and the Ballot Box”. It is by two very notable academics Phil Cowley and Robert Ford.
Also I’m delighted to announce that the Referendum Prediction Competition was won by Mike K. Sorry if this has been a long time coming but there was so much news in the period after June 23rd that this got squeezed out week after week and then I went on holiday. My apologies.
Thanks again to Mark Hopkins of Nojam for setting up the system to operate both competitions.
