Who guards the guards?

Who guards the guards?

Good morning UK.

The people have to decide whether they trust MPs to protect their civil, political and human rights without the necessary legislation in place to enforce these rights from the political whims of MPs.

This is a constitutional issue. Traditionally the UK has operated without a written constitution. Has the time now come to have a written constitution which a constitutional court will uphold against the unconstitutional acts of the Executive and or the legislature?

We are told that we have rights. However is a subject able to enforce those rights in a locked prison cell? It is no good staring at a notice on the back of the cell door proclaiming your rights, and when the guard unlocks the cell door denying you those rights. Somebody has to guard the guards.
