    Spotted on TSR politics study help about a week and a half ago, it was a really helpful table split into four sections (I think) detailing the good and bad things about a codified/uncodified constitution. Totally kicking my self for not saving it somewhere! Would be of great help for my Government and Politics AS Level resit, Edexcel Unit 2 (Governing the UK). Anyone? :holmes:

    Pro-uncodified:

    * Flexible
    * Modern
    * Never been a problem in past
    * Public have no problem with it


    Anti-codified:

    * Hard to agree on
    * Inflexible (hard to change)
    * Too much power to judges (new interpretations)

    Pro-codified:

    * Defines people’s liberties
    * Safeguard against tyrannical government
    * Public can access and understand easier.


    Anti-uncodified:

    * Dangerous govt can exploit it
    * Hard for public to understand
    * Allows civil liberties to be overridden.
