Abstract :

The nature of the British party system makes it difficult to stage a debate on constitutional reform. There seems to be an inherent inclination towards opposition politics between the Labour Party and the Conservative Party in which trivialities seem to be the main focus. The parties themselves are not fit to debate on some of the main issues. A national debate should be established which allows both parties to express their views without permitting them to set its agenda.
