At the end of the first decade of the twenty‐first century democracy in the United Kingdom is drifting. No political party seems able to articulate what constitutional reform is for anymore and in this context stimulating debates about ‘Britishness’, citizenship or a ‘common statement of values’ might, therefore, be regarded as weak and oblique responses to the challenges of constitutional anomie set out in this book.
Keywords: bi‐constitutionalism, modified majoritarianism, democratic drift, elite politics, New Labour, constitutional anomie, constitutional morality, Conservative Party, Britishness, British Bill of Rights, public expectations, comparative politics
