    the UK doesn't actually have a written "Constitution", or anything resembling the Bill of Rights.

    What it does have is one thousand years of legal precedent, but retains the ability to be flexible. For example, it was open to the UK to sign up to the European laws on Human Rights, however much UKIP and the Conservatives might bitch and moan.

    So a variety of systems can work, as indeed can the US system. It faces major challenges of a conservative supreme court, and the terrible effect money in politics is bringing ... but despite that the US has a modern constitution. The original words may be old, but SCOTUS decisions amend them every month, and it could be for the better.

    I hope that the quality of debate will improve,
    but I fear we will remain Democrats.
