9780091773083: Common Sense: New Constitution for Britain

Tony Benn's book on the constitution seeks to liberate Britain from its past, which weighs the country down with a ramshackle legislative system and many ancient obstacles to democracy. Benn's constitution would abolish the House of Lords and replace it with a House of the People, end the constitutional status of the Crown, lower the voting age to 16, democratize the law relating to the armed forces and the security services, free official information, set up national parliaments in Wales and Scotland and disestablish the Church of England - among many other acts that would change the face of Britain.
