“Austen Morgan has written an engaging, wide-ranging, thought-provoking and refreshingly undogmatic book on the history, current state and possible future of the UK constitution and system of government. Even those steeped in the subject will find interesting facts, connections and opinions which they will not have come across before. In these challenging times, anyone interested in the future of this country or how we got where we are should read this book”.
