I think it's more important that we have a proper, written Constitution. Now, more than ever, the individual citizen needs protection from the ever-increasing encroachment of the State. I'm happy to see that under a much-reduced constitutional monarchy which is what it'll be after HM croaks anyway.

Agreed. I would also make freedom of speech a cornerstone of the constitution as the Americans have done. It would give us problems but rather that than the constant eroding that is going on now.

 


One more point

Would it really stop the deep state doing what they please?

It's a step in the right direction.

The voters, who I have no time for, cannot have it all ways.

They were offered, through a referendum, a chance to amend the system so they would be more accurately represented in Parliament.

But they voted to retain the first past the post system.

Tough titty voters, you get what you 'voted' for.

Good luck with writing a constitution that is relevant in every detail, in perpetuity. Or just donít bother.

What do you see as the benefits? I think the risks are pretty clear from the regular slaughter of innocents across the pond.

 


Vive le Roy!

It will always be down to interpretation though, even if written. Does America have a better track record on free speech than Britain? Iíd argue not.

One of the benefits has just been stated.
I very much doubt that you'd see eye to eye with our perspectives.....despite the fact that they are pretty close to how the state saw them not so long ago.

Because I don't agree with referendums at all.

I have no moral objection to disregarding the result of them either.

The government is elected to govern IMO.

But a referendum is first past the post as well and you have just argued that people have to accept those results.

Live your own arguments.

The government that was elected decided to have a referendum.....it was governing.....you can't pick and choose.
