Description

Has the British public become more and more alienated from the UK political process? This book assesses the government's modernisation programme and examines a variety of worrying new constitutional issues: the draft EU constitution, relations between executive, judiciary and legislature, the case for a Supreme Court, reform of the House of Lords, devolution and restructuring of local government. Stanley Henig explores the contribution federal ideas can make towards resolving these problems and reversing the process of alienation and in the process offers some trenchant and radical conclusions.
