In the second series of weekly updates, Professor Conor Gearty provides a summary of the ideas from the Constitution UK community.

Would you abandon our current First past the post system in favour of something else? 

Is it now time to allow our 16-18yr olds the right to vote, along with their right to work and join the armed forces?

Jack Holton has declared that each district council should have an elected mayor.

How do you feel about Jhackett’s idea to replace the House of Lords with a people’s jury?

In the judiciary topic, Andrew Cullyer thinks we should give judges judicial veto to strike down laws as unconstitutional as they do in the US. What powers should our judges have in our constitution?

Are you at the top of the leaderboard? Is your idea gaining votes? If not, what are you waiting for? Join the debate and share your ideas.
