    I don't think the Supreme Court is pooling sovereignty no, I wouldn't mention it just to be sure
    I think that's best, too. Thanks for clearing that up

    Would you say that the UK constitution is becoming more federal because of the shared sovereignty with other EU members, though? I'm confused as to whether federal would mean within national borders. So becoming more federal becomes of multiple governments within the UK.

    just thought could you talk about the supreme court and how the judges can check against the HRA

    then along with popular sovereignity eg referendums elections pressure groupsetc, HRA, devolution then that might be enough to talk about? idk if HRA counts as an international treaty though idkkkk
    For sure that can be a point, not even about international treaty but just about being a member of the eu, could argue even though we have pooled sovereignty we get the echr but then again that might be leading a little into judiciary when talking about the judges so probs not go into too much depth about it but it could probs work!

    You could say we're becoming more federal due to further legislative powers to devolved authorities. I'm just not sure us being apart of the EU makes us a federal state, it's tough

    Oh **** were we? I thought it all happened when major was in gov and he had the whole situation with the eu and when we joined we had to implement the echr, are you sure you can have the echr without being a member of the eu I thought that was a perk of being a member

    Good point. I'm unsure myself. Best to just avoid it and hope it doesn't come up at all!

    Thanks again

    I know Conservatives believe that the original interpretation has now been perverted since they can't deport criminals who have a family, so now they want a bill of rights (the deportation is just one reason, but 'perversion of meaning' is why)

    That power still remains with parliament however we distribute some sovereign/power to the devolved nations...think of it as we're half a federal constitution but not fully as parliament is still in charge

    Yeah I don't think it matters how many you choose as long as you include a post 2010 one
