‘The Constitution: Old and New’ addresses the question of the nature of Britain's constitution. It is often said that Britain has an unwritten constitution or no proper constitution at all. This is misleading, rather it has a constitution that is not codified or enacted into a single book or rules. It is a historical constitution as well as a political one and is made up of an accumulation of statutes, common law provisions and precedents, conventions and guidebooks. However, that is changing as a result of Britain joining the European Union, the growing demand for devolution in Scotland and Wales and the changes implemented by the Labour Government of Tony Blair.
