Tony Blair and the constitution

Norton, Philip



Under Tony Blair's premiership, the British constitution has undergone extensive change, unparalleled in recent British history, but without the Prime Minister having a developed view of what form of constitution is desirable for the United Kingdom. The changes that have taken place have had unintended consequences but with no mechanisms in place to deal with those consequences and illustrate the extent to which the constitutional framework of the United Kingdom is unravelling. The challenge facing Tony Blair's successor is to look holistically at the constitution and identify an intellectually coherent approach to constitutional change.
