Talking Politics: Supreme Court

07/11/2019

This Episode – 19 September 2019

In the middle of the epic prorogation battle at the Supreme Court, we ask what’s at stake: for the government, for Brexit, for the constitution and for democracy. Is this a case of legal precedent, common law practice or higher constitutional principle? Is the UK constitution becoming more European in the act of leaving the EU?

With Catherine Barnard, Helen Thompson and Chris Bickerton. MORE AT LINK
