Our alliances with other European countries somewhat rely on Britain having similar legal proceedings. For example, trade and relations between China and the EU are quite stilted due to the very different systems used to run the country. This shows that Britain should adopt a codified constitution, so that relations between Britain and the EU do not get worse. Another reason to have a codified constitution is that most of the work has already been completed. For example, we already have a Human Rights Act and therefore all a codified constitution would do is enshrine this in our law system.

A constitution is a definitive power any action, which contradicts the rules of the constitution, will be both unconstitutional and unlawful. It helps to recognise the rights and freedoms of citizens through a bill of rights, which works both to protect citizens and to confine the power of the state.

The United Kingdom constitution, also known as a political constitution, is controlled by politics. Every country has a constitution however not all of them are the same. The United Kingdom constitution is very different compared to others. For instance, it is uncodified, it is parliamentary executive, rather than a presidential executive constitution.
The United States Constitution overcame the weaknesses of the Articles of Confederation and provided for the organization of the new government. After the American Revolutionary War in America, the colonists needed a government so nobody could take away their power. The Articles Of Confederation was the first attempt of American Government and it had advantages and disadvantages. The constitutional convention helped solve some of the Articles problems but there were still major issues and problems that needed resolving. People also had different opinions on whether or not the Constitution should be ratified or not.The process the Constitution went through to be ratified was a lengthy and a long process that took attempts and revisions.
Constitution is the written law, the principles and rules of a country but also the relationship between the individual and the state. The powers of the government and the right of the people pumped from the constitution. Most of the states does possess a written constitution but United Kingdom isn’t one of the according to FF Ridley. Although a part of United Kingdom constitution as it said is written in several documents such as the legislations, the treaties, the conventions but also the in the judicial decisions. Instead of having a codified constitution in a single document United Kingdom choose to split it in several documents.
Compare the history of how we got to our current constitution to something else and why that is so? A constitution is literally a rule book. It states many different things in it. It sets up major governing institutions, assigns institutions their given power, and places explicit and implicit control on power that given to them.

Form this, it is understood that without any codification of law, the justice passed may be inefficient as even in the current court of law, with the codified laws, the justice passed is inefficient. The third king felt the need of the judiciary system to implement the laws after establishing Tshogdu for legislating and Lhengye Zhungtshog for executing. Therefore, in 1967 High Court was established (Phuntsho, 2013, p.567). The establishment of High court gave systemic functioning of the government where all the people shared the equal power for valid justices. This is where the people saw the codified law which served them justice.
A constitution is the body of law containing rules which determine the direction of the state. It is instructive to note that the constitutions of Caribbean independent states were primarily produced by British civil servants at Whitehall, with little input from Caribbean publics. At independence almost all Commonwealth Caribbean countries adopted the parliamentary majoritarian political system with its dual executive power structure in the head of state and head of government. Radical approach to constitutional reform is one of the approaches that can be taking to make changes to the constitution. Advocates of the radical line of thought argue the need to change the British parliamentary system to a presidential type of democracy.
Important changes happened a lot of years before and until our days we can see amendments in this system because as we said we have an “unwritten” constitution which is more flexible than others which are in codified form. But is the British constitution a political one or a legal one. As Adam Tomkins said in his book <Public Law>, “A political constitution is one in which those who exercise political power
