Is the government really acting for the people? Or does this rhetoric simply justify an executive power-grab?
Although ‘Partygate’ grabbed the headlines, other constitutional changes have been taking place with little public awareness which strengthen governmental powers and weaken political and legal checks over their actions.
In Unchecked Power: How Recent Constitutional Reforms are Threatening UK Democracy, Alison Young provides the first consolidated account of these changes, arguing that the UK is currently on a constitutional cliff-edge which endangers democracy and good constitutional government. She argues that more is needed to shore up the UK’s post-Brexit constitution to prevent it collapsing into a system of unchecked power.
Alison will be joined by Hannah White and other guests to debate these issues, chaired by Vikram Sachdeva. The debate will be followed by a drinks reception and opportunity to buy a signed copy of the book.
