THE CONSERVATIVE LIBERTARIAN PARTY’S PROPOSAL FOR A WRITTEN CONSTITUTION

Updated: May 22

THE CONSERVATIVE LIBERTARIAN PARTY’S PROPOSAL FOR A WRITTEN CONSTITUTION

 

The Conservative Libertarian Party of the United Kingdom has on 17 May 2024 become a Republican Party, for reasons set out here: https://www.theconservativelibertariansociety.com/post/the-conservative-libertarian-party-of-the-united-kingdom-turns-republican.


The reason that there is no written Constitution in the United Kingdom is that Monarchists facilitate the Monarch to become Dictatorial from time to time in the course of history which will be fine if that is what the majority of the population actually wish but it should be explicitly written into a Written Constitution. People are then fully  informed on what to expect from their government.


The change from unwritten to a written Constitution will not enable the Head of State to discharge his or her duties secretively from behind the scenes away from the public eye. The role of the Constitutional Head of State which would be hereditary from the existing Royal Family but Parliament must decide what it should be whether limited (Ceremonial) or unlimited powers.


The Constitution must clearly outline the relationship between the Ceremonial Head of State and the Parliament (House of Commons).


The House of Lords should not be abolished.


The Written Constitution should be put to an initial Yes/No referendum of the population initially; and if there is a Yes decision from the electorate to have a Written Constitution all subsequent Amendments to the Constitution when these take place through Parliamentary approval first must go to another referendum.


The Written Constitution should be prepared by a Select Committee of the House of Commons charged with this role, and Document prepared must be subjected to a vote in the Chambers and then the House of Lords.


The Head of State should be known as the ‘Lord President’.


The Speaker of the House of Commons will be solely responsible for all the technical proceedings of the Chamber, not the Lord/Lady President who will never enter this Chambers for ceremonial functions. The Royal Assent to the current outline of the Executive's work to the Lord/Lady President in the House of Chambers will therefore be abolished.
