The UK government should be required to publish the annual budget four months in advance of it being laid before parliament, to enable greater public and parliamentary scrutiny of it.   In a lecture to the London School of Economics [http://www.lse.ac.uk/publicEvents/events/2015/03/20150316t1200vLSE.aspx], the First Minister of Scotland Nicola Sturgeon called for a reform to the way in which the UK government sets the budget and allows for parliamentary scrutiny.

Separation of powers is a fundamental principle of our democracy. Power is divided between the legislature (parliament), the executive (government) and the judiciary. How should our judges be appointed? By Parliament? By Government? By popular election? By an Independent Commission set up under the Constitution?

In popular discourse, our international relations with two European bodies receive a great deal of attention: the European Union and the Council of Europe. My ideas here focus on the European Convention on Human Rights and not on the treaties relating to the European Union. It is, however, important to be clear on the distinction between the two institutions.  Britain entered the European Communities (now European Union) when it signed an international agreement with the other members of...
