Constitutional Change in the UK

No Right Turn has details of constitutional changes the new Prime Minister Gordon Brown plans to make in the UK, which involves transfering significent powers, like declaring war, dissolve parliament and appoint judges. This move should be welcomed. I hope that such changes may occur in New Zealand as well, and a fixed electoral term to stop governments calling for early elections when they are doing well in the polls (like Labour did in 2002) in the near future. The powers involved are very significent and shouldn’t be vested in one person.
