I’m grateful to Brian Feeney for a heads up on this item on BBC Radio 4’s Today Programme debating whether to repeal the the 1701 Act of Settlement or not. I’ve not listened to it yet, but Feeney notes in yesterday’s column that it pits historian William Dalrymple (for repeal) against Jeffrey Donaldson (for retention). Sounds like it should be worth listening to!
