‘The Britishness of British Politics’ explores what makes British politics so distinctive. Britain has enjoyed a long and remarkable history of political stability in modern times. Without a modern revolutionary moment, Britain was not compelled to remake its political institutions or to draw up a new constitution. There has been a long period of visible continuity in its constitutional landscape. It has had a strong executive centre to government rooted in a particular history and society. However, that stability is now being challenged by greater diversity in society and greater demands for accountability by governments.
