The British constitution has developed pragmatically over time and contrary to das Grundgesetz, that is to say the Basic Law, or the French constitution for example, its sources cannot be found in one single document. The British constitution is non codified, flexible, monarchical, not entrenched, written, bicameralist, and there are the principles known as the parliamentary sovereignty and the principle of the rule of law which is considered to be the heart of the British Constitution(BC). The British Constitution derives for a variety of sources only some of which are written. Examples of written sources of the BC: -Statutes (Acts of Parliaments, Enactments) -Common Law (Case law as prohibition del Roy) -the royal prerogatives -the European Community law (EC law) -the lex et consuetedo (that is to say the standing orders of the House of Commons and the House of Lords) -scholarly writings that is to say academic writings (in universities as in Oxbridge for example Vernon Bogdanor who was David's Cameron tutor and an Oxbridge don that's to say professor. He was very good in devolution which implies transfer of power from the centre to the periphery. It is more than French regionalization. It is less than German or American federalism. It is between regionalization and federalism).
