Following the UK's exit from the European Union the three principles of parliamentary of sovereignty as defined by A.V. Dicey, that great constitutional theorist, once again fully apply to Westminster. These are that Parliament is the supreme lawmaking body and can enact laws on any subject; that Parliament cannot bind its successor; and that no court or law, or other body for that matter, can question the validity of Parliament’s enactments. In this episode Jacob Rees-Mogg discusses Dicey's work and the relevance of parliamentary sovereignty today with Professor Vernon Bogdanor of King's College London, who returns to the podcast following his more general interview in the first series' opening episode.
