Who wrote the US, German or French constitutions? I would imagine a similar person or college of people would do the job for the UK. It is surely high time the UK had a fit-for-purpose written constitution.

I'd also get rid of parliament (the chambers) as they are now; turn the place into a museum. Commission a modern parliamentary building, designed in the round, with space sufficient for each member to have a seat, including access to technology and voting done from the seat rather than walking into lobbies. Tear up the arcane traditions, Black Rod, speaker's robes, archaic language etc etc. The UK is, or at least ought to be a modern forward looking country with a system of governance fit for the 21st century, not the 18th.
