A. V. Dicey
Our constitution, in short, is a judge-made constitution, and it bears on its face all the features, good and bad, of judge-made law.
Dicey quotes
The principle of Parliamentary sovereignty means neither more nor less than this, namely, that Parliament thus defined has, under the English constitution, the right to make or unmake any law whatever; and, further, that no person or body is recognised by the law of England as having a right to override or set aside the legislation of Parliament.
