Beyond Brexit: Towards a British Constitution

Availability: Ready to download

Brexit means exit, but what exactly will we be leaving behind? Entry into the European Community in 1973 was a momentous event – one which had seismic effects on the politics and constitution of Britain. Brexit, while equally as momentous, has almost wholly been confined to discussions of economic consequence. But what will happen to the constitution? Beyond Brexit looks fo Brexit means exit, but what exactly will we be leaving behind? Entry into the European Community in 1973 was a momentous event – one which had seismic effects on the politics and constitution of Britain. Brexit, while equally as momentous, has almost wholly been confined to discussions of economic consequence. But what will happen to the constitution? Beyond Brexit looks for the first time at the impact of Brexit and the constitutional consequences of Britain's EU membership, raising the question of just how the United Kingdom is to be preserved. In this book, Vernon Bogdanor explores the ever-changing relationship between Britain and the European Union from the original concept of European unity to 21st century Euroscepticism, the fundamental problems confronting Britain on its exit from the European Union, and argues that Brexit is the start of new beginnings – heralding a peaceful constitutional moment.

    This is an informative argument by a most respected British authority about the need for a constitutional overhaul after Brexit. Rather than rehearse the arguments for and against leaving the EU, Vernon Bogdanor surveys briefly matters such as the troubled relationship between Britain and the EU; the way in which referenda have increasingly played a part in constitutional changes; the impact of human rights (especially the little recognised Charter of Fundamental Rights); and the changes wrought This is an informative argument by a most respected British authority about the need for a constitutional overhaul after Brexit. Rather than rehearse the arguments for and against leaving the EU, Vernon Bogdanor surveys briefly matters such as the troubled relationship between Britain and the EU; the way in which referenda have increasingly played a part in constitutional changes; the impact of human rights (especially the little recognised Charter of Fundamental Rights); and the changes wrought by devolution. Bogdanor's thesis that leaving the EU could and should lead to a new constitutional settlement. It is an interesting and powerful argument, and the book offers in a dispassionate manner plenty of information and analysis to support this thesis. My only reservations about this book are its style and construction. It smacks of being produced rather hurriedly and has the feel of a draft. At places, it is rambling and repetitive. The book would benefit from tighter editing and a clearer academic structure (e.g. a bibliography). Hopefully that will come in the future editions that are bound to be needed as the Brexit issue works itself through.
