Make out a case against the adoption of a codified constitution for the UK The UK constitution has been around for over 300 years, and is renowned around the world for its efficiency, however, in recent years, politics has taken a change, that most would say is for the better. These changes leave the UK’s constitution looking rather dated in comparison, and some critics say that it is time for a drastic change in our constitution, however is this drastic change really needed for a system that’s worked well for so long already? The UK constitution is uncodified, meaning that it is not written down in one continuous document. While there are those who say this leaves the people in a haze about their rights, it allows for swift changes to anything that needs done, this is immensely helpful for times of crisis, when the public look to government to quickly make decisions. If the constitution was codified, it would become entrenched, meaning that for it to be changed, a long arduous process would have to be taken.
Citizens can now access the information held on them by some 100,000 organisations. This act came into full force n 2005 yet even though public authorities are required to publish more information there are still many which can withhold information on the grounds of public safety or national security. In the respect this reform was of little impact as many companies can excuse not giving away information by claiming its for national security or public safety. One reform which has had a major impact on the constitution was devolution. Britain, at best can be described as quasi-federal as opposed to unitary state or a federal state.
Even though the story about Frankenstein was written almost 200 years ago, the story never gets old. Because today we are still ourselves the same questions. And even though we think we are, we are not one step closer to answering these questions then
It could be argued that Australia becoming a Federation was a stupid thing to do but most people agree that it was a great idea. Some of the reasons can include trade (NSW/Victoria rivalry), communication and fear of invasion by Germany. On January 1, 1901, Australia’s six self-governing colonies became states in a Federal Commonwealth. In other words, January 1st, 1901, is when Australia became a Federation. For over fifty years many individuals had dreamed of this and occasionally false starts were made, but it wasn’t until the 1890’s that the Federation movement gathered momentum.
The source is limited in some ways as it does not discuss the damage done to the industry in places such as docklands and factories. The Germans targeted places along the river Thames as that was where most of the factories were. Also, the source indicates that the damage and impact that the Zeppelins created was not going The source is a secondary source as it was published in 2009, 91 years after the end of world war one. Although it is secondary, the source is still well researched meaning it is unlikely to have errors. It is not biast as it doesn’t take sides which makes it fairly reliable.
Jonathan Huston Honors 202 Essay 1 That a translation of Marcus Aurelius’ Meditations spent two weeks on the bestseller list as recently as 2002 is a testament to the endurance of some of the ideas laid out in its pages. Many ancient works survive in textbooks and classrooms as forced historical studies, but you certainly don’t see The Odyssey or The Iliad on the bestseller list in modern times. Certainly this endurance is at least partly attributable to the “timeless” wisdom contained in some passages (Though popularity is not always related to quality, see: Gaga, Lady; Twilight, and Two and a Half Men). Some values simply seem to hold their bearing across cultural evolutions and advancement. Aurelius’
Now coupled with the fact that it had reoccurred outbreaks in the following years it is no wonder that the recovery time for the re population and commerce of Europe and Asia was not a quick one. It took many generation to get back to pere-plague population and economic stability that Europe had, with it also being said that Europe still feels some of the effect of the Bubonic Plague in today's society but with the capitalist system in play and living strong. When it comes to the fact that even thought the Bubonic has never be eradicated we now know how to counter act it and have a cure for this plague when it does appear today. Thanks to modern medical breakthroughs and with the fact that science and religion are no longer entwined with another we have been able to save countless live without the involvement of the church. We also have to thank the historians of the 14th century and how they documented this time in history, without them, and the doctors, and scientist we could possibility no be here
Sadly, racism has been around for thousands of years. Even during Jesus’ times, racism was very much alive in the local towns and cities. However, the Bible says everybody is fearfully and wonderfully made. Not on person is exactly like the other. Everybody including myself, has shortfalls and have failed expectations, but in my opinion that is not reason to maliciously ignore, torture, or think of a race in a biased way simply because of their looks, dialect, or descent.
Also many structures that were started before the plaque were left unfinished. There are those that have said that York Minister, the largest gothic cathedral in Northern Europe, would have been more perfect if it had been finished ten or twenty years before. Although some agree or disagree with this statement, European architecture did push forward as new trends and styles emerged. Canterbury Cathedral and Beverly Minister, in the United Kingdom, are evidence that architecture found its way in the decades that followed the Black Death. In conclusion, in attempting to sketch the effects of the Black Death, one could touch on a number of various aspects as a result.
