On 14th January 2015, Politeia's new series with BPP University A Free Society Under the Rule of Law, will be addressed by Sir Stephen Sedleyon ​The Separation of Powers.  

Montesquieu's remark that without separation of the state's powers there would be 'an end of everything' may have been an overstatement, but it contained an important truth. The separation of powers in the British state, while it has long and deep historical roots, is not a fixed set of relationships and may today be under critical pressure

Britain’s relations with Europe are now at the centre of the national political debate. In the May 2014 Elections the Eurosceptic vote in Britain was over 50 per cent. Across Europe the mood was similar. The Prime Minister has pledged to renegotiate Britain’s relationship with the EU if the Conservatives are returned to power. Indeed, if the EU is to survive and prosper, all recognise that reform is essential.
