WRITTEN IN THE STARS: the argument for a codified constitution



In this episode:

Summer’s here and the time is right for… the first of our episodes recorded live at the Underbelly Festival. Britain is one of the only countries in the world without a codified constitution. Is it finally time to do something about it? Professor Jeff King & Dr Hannah White discuss how our constitution works, its role in Bre**t and whether this could be an opportunity for reform. Jeff with a J talks us through his democratic argument for adopting a written constitution (spoiler: includes sortition!).

AND comedian Nish Kumar wants to ban the term "climate change" in favour of a term that sounds more urgent, an age based social media expiry, and a NO MORE politicians on comedy panel shows.


Professor Jeff King (@jeff_a_king), Professor of Law at University College London

Hannah White (@DrHannahWhite), deputy director of the Institute for Government

Nish Kumar (@MrNishKumar), comedian and host of The Mash Report
