Acid Test for Rights

if you are wondering how to approach whether to argue for or vote on a right, this approach may help:

- the acid test for elevating something to a constitutional right is that it is something we take for granted and cherish 

- because of that's the case it's probably too important to be left to the government of the day 

(We are obviously concerned with serious day to day concepts rather than our local corner shops, Christmas etc.   But we may want a minimum number of bank holidays enshrined).
