Professor Sionaidh Douglas-Scott explores Brexit possibilities in a piece for Prospect magazine

Professor Sionaidh Douglas-Scott published an article for Prospect magazine on what happens next after the Government's defeat after the vote on the Brexit deal. She writes: “Even the constitutional position is unclear, given that the British Constitution is not codified, but made up in part of a host of constitutional conventions, procedures and practices, very often arcane, recondite and difficult to track down—and then, so often not legally enforceable but malleable, allowing for flexibility and manoeuvre. This is why there has been so much argument and debate over recent decisions taken by the speaker John Bercow, as to whether certain amendments should be allowed.” Read the whole piece here.
