Tell others about this book Lorem About The New British Constitution The last decade has seen radical changes in the way we are governed. Reforms such as the Human Rights Act and devolution have led to the replacement of one constitutional order by another.

The Human Rights Act and the devolution legislation have the character of fundamental law. They in practice limit the rights of Westminster as a sovereign parliament, and establish a constitution which is quasi-federal in nature.

The old constitution emphasised the sovereignty of Parliament. The new constitution, by contrast, emphasises the separation of powers, both territorially and at the centre of government.

The aim of constitutional reformers has been to improve the quality of government. But the main weakness of the new constitution is that it does little to secure more popular involvement in politics. We are in the process of becoming a constitutional state, but not a popular constitutional state. The next phase of constitutional reform, therefore, is likely to involve the creation of new forms of democratic engagement, so that our constitutional forms come to be more congruent with the social and political forces of the age.

The old British constitution was analysed by Bagehot and Dicey. In this book Vernon Bogdanor charts the significance of what is coming to replace it. The expenses scandal shows up grave defects in the British constitution. His mastery of the subject is conveyed in a conversational style which makes the book a pleasure to read and for this reason The New British Constitution will appeal to the widest possible readership.

Bogdanor is himself a part of the constitution, an unacknowledged legislator: the book is a revelation. More, it is a reproach to journalism, that we have not more clearly explained a great shift of the past decade. He has. This is not just a book to read, it is one to keep on the shelf for reference.

Anyone remotely interested in the constitution, including all the main party leaders, should certainly acquire a copy It is exactly in explaining, understanding and responding to this puzzle — major constitutional reform combined with the erosion of public support — that The New British Constitution provides a provocative and original answer. He combines the approaches of the political historian, the constitutional lawyer and the political scientist to put the changes into a wider context.

It is a must read for anyone interested in British politics. He is worthy of the comparison. The book is an illuminating guide to quite how much of what we used to know about the British constitution has ceased to be applicable in a comparatively short time But in hunting this Snark through the thickets of legislation and tradition, there can be no more doughty guide than Vernon Bogdanor…[a] timely and indeed prescient book.

The New British Constitution also undoubtedly provides a strong basis for discussion of future change. From the discipline of government, he fully engages in legal matters and brings a freshness to public law. This book is written with admirable clarity and is unusually accessible to expert and layman. It is also one of the few works that seek to make sense of contemporary developments in the context of our constitutional history.

His conclusions are bold and He also writes very well in a style which engages the reader. He offers fresh insights into both the changes which have taken place since and into the unknown future.

The New British Constitution will be of value to everyone with an interest in politics or public law and is highly recommended.

The New British Constitution

The task now is to transform crisis into opportunity. By Vernon Bogdanor We tend to think of single-party majority government as the norm in Britain. And so it has been in the postwar era. Every other government was either a minority administration or a coalition. Until , the prime reason for this was the return of a solid bloc of Irish nationalists to Westminster — at least 80 in every general election from to In , and from January the Liberals, the leading party of the left, were dependent on the Irish nationalists for their majority.
