The Blair legacy: "Profound constitutional revolution"

In The House Magazine, via epolitix.com, Vernon Bogdanor writes a fascinating summary of the constitutional changes of the Blair years:

Our constitution has now been almost completely refashioned by the Blair government, and is coming to be based on consciously formulated rules rather than tacit understandings. We have been living, therefore, through an unnoticed constitutional revolution, a quiet revolution yet profound.

It is interesting to get this perspective on the Blair years, as such reflections have been missing so far from all the retrospectives.
