I am not learning the judiciary! I hate the judiciary.
Dunno, they're a bit unpredictable because our unit 1 was very similar to last years exam so basically anything could come up...

Any predictions for the constitution?
maybe - Assess criticisms of the Coalition's programme of constitutional reform

- Assess the view that we do not need further constitutional reform

- To what extent has devolution been successful

These are some essay question predictions for the constitution doubt they are right

Primarily through scrutiny of legislation and suggesting amendments(very similar to HoC)
Also through their ability to delay legislation for upto a year, but the govt' can chose to override this delay and pass the bill withut parliamentary support.
Peers are also members of select committees and public bill committees, sam flaws as for the HoC apply here.
And peers can pass private members bills. Much like usual MP ones, they are very difficult to gain enough support for but they do exist.
