The British Constitution has developed in a pragmatic way much influenced by Hobbes, Locke, Smith and Mill. The issues they raised are still debated; the role of the State; its relation to Economics; the source of Authority; Liberty and Regulation. What is the function of the state? Is there a social contract between Citizens and also with the Government? The Fathers of the Constitution explored these issues. In a democracy so shall we during this day. All-comers welcome.
