On this day in 1714 George Ludwig of Hanover became King George 1st of Great Britain & Ireland. It was under George that the real power in government transferred from the King and advisers to a Prime Minister and Cabinet. Seems quite an auspicious day to go to a meeting to discuss how the constitution of Stockton council is working, or not, to promote real democracy in the borough.
