Bang to rights: How to fix the British constitution
Tuesday, 29 November
Our unwritten constitution relies on our politicians acting in good faith. But with recent political crises leaving it creaking at the hinges, do we still benefit from its flexibility? Andrew Blick, co-author of The Bonfire of the Decencies: Repairing and Restoring the British Constitution, talks to Alex Andreou about how to fix the rules that rule us.
“Our flexible constitution can adjust in times of public emergency.”
“The ‘good chap’ phrase is as outdated as the theory.”
“Our constitution isn’t codified, but there are more checks and balances.”
“We have lost faith in politicians behaving themselves.”
