Does the UK constitution need further reform?
Posted by Matt Walker on January 8, 2010
There are a number of further reforms which some organisations (such as Charter 88) suggest are required to bring UK politics into the 21st Century.
Further possible reforms:
1) Reform of the electoral system, making it more proportional.
2) Codifying and entrenching the constitution.
3) Full democratisation of the House of Lords
4) Removal of the prime minister’s prerogative powers and their transfer to parliament.
5) Devolution for England
Why do some people advocate such reforms, and do you think they are worthwhile?
