    I hope the 25 marker on the constitution is on the constitution and NOT the judiciary. For against codified or evaluating reforms.

    For parliament something like how well it performs its functions.

    There are problems with how Parliament is seen as a representative body, becausethere are different interpretations of representation. As an elected body, it legitimisesexecutive power, but serves also to link citizens with the political process. It acts asa safety valve and allows MPs in Parliament to articulate the interests of differentgroups in society to government. Parliament fulfils the task of both general andspecific representation. The representation of constituents’ grievances is a traditionalrole of MPs.The significance of Parliament to the public is reflected in the extent to which itremains a magnet for the expression of opinion and dissent. Millions of lettersflow into Parliament each year. Organisations arrange mass lobbies of MPs.Protesters stand with banners and megaphones outside Parliament. These hugedemonstrations show that, for many citizens, Parliament remains relevant.

    e.g. " the house of lords is more effective at scrutinizing the government than parliament is"
