Citizens should decide where power lies in the UK. 

When MPs return, they can’t go back to business as usual. It’s time for voters to write a new rule book for the 21st century. We need a Constitutional Convention.

Petition text:

It's time for a UK-wide Constitutional Convention to decide how the UK should be governed.

The Supreme Court's latest ruling is the latest sign that the UK’s governing system is discredited: the gentleman's agreements that used to pass for our constitution have fully broken down.

A majority of delegates to the Convention should be randomly selected citizens, representative of the UK’s nations, regions and demographics. It should decide the sharing of power between the four nations of the UK and between Parliament and the Government.

The outdated Westminster set-up needs a complete overhaul – with greater sharing of power and clear constitutional rules that rebalance the system.
