Prospect Debate 3: Time for a Written Constitution?

Hay Festival 2022, 

Britain’s famously unwritten constitution is coming under unprecedented strain. Power-hungry governments view checks and balances with contempt. Is now the time to strengthen our ancient patchwork of norms and conventions – and write the rules down in one place? Speakers include Mary Ann Sieghart, journalist, author and broadcaster; and Helena Kennedy QC, barrister and human rights advocate. Chaired by Alan Rusbridger, Editor of Prospect magazine.
