"there are three mysteries about the transformation of the UK. What does the Prime Minister think he is doing? Why doesn't the British media hold constitutional reform to be important enough to demand an answer to this question? And why don't "the people" care? Any overview of the reforms now under way, such as Constitutional Futures, the aptly timed, keynote publication of the Constitution Unit, should be judged in the first instance on how well it addresses these puzzling questions." - Anthony Barnett, TLS
