The Bonfire of the Decencies




The British constitution matters. Its observance is crucial to the well-being of all our people, to every state activity and deployment of government power. It is crucial to the face our society presents to itself as well as to those who observe us from overseas. 

For all its importance, however, the British constitution is a thing of considerable mystery and elusiveness, and in the last five years this has contributed to a crisis of trust as levels of political probity and accountability falter.

Andrew Blick and Peter Hennessy compel us to look anew at our constitutional procedures. Only by repairing and restoring our constitution, the argue, can we keep the United Kingdom safely in the highest ranks of the rule-of-law nations – a gift we assumed was so securely banked that, until recently, we did not have to worry about it.
