I saw the whole match of Essex versus Northants, even if it was only 96.3 overs (see article in The Cricketer). There have been shorter matches (see scorecard) scheduled over 3 days (see tweet by @davidaw69).
The Labour Party's strategy has come into focus with the loss of the Hartlepool by-election (see New Statesman article). The Hartlepools (see Wikipedia entry) first became Labour in 1964. I think Britain's current conflict about its values will again be decided in favour of liberty, responsibility and fairness.
