It will transform the political landscape, in ways which are not yet fully understood; and some of which the government does not intend. This book is a guide to the new political and legal system that will result. The changes will include: greater checks and balances and greater separation of powers; a new territorial politics, with greater competition between the nations and regions of the UK; fragmentation of the party system, and the emergence of more regional political parties; a shift of power from Parliament to the courts, with more litigation against government, and between the new levels of government within the UK; changing concepts of citizenship and democracy; and a more pluralist, consensus-building style of politics with more coalition governments and more minority parties in place of the adversarial two-party system.
