INTRODUCTION

with jurisdiction to judge between Commons and people should be a single gentleman, or should be seven hundred similar gentlemen. Such a suggestion may be of admirably conservative effect and highly obstructive of changes which they do not approve, but to claim it as an application of popular sovereignty savours more of the Conservative platform than of the academic chair.
There is a third category of conventions. These are understandings of a general kind aimed at the better functioning of a particular institution. The principle that no peer other than a law lord sits when the House of Lords is acting as Court of Appeal is one example. Another is the assurance to the Opposition in the Commons of adequate rights of expression. Again, that there shall be no interference in the internal affairs of a Dominion, and no taxation for home purposes of a colony, and that there shall be no extension of a Parliament's period of tenure, are other examples which arise out of the necessities of the continuance of the British Constitution as it is. A further example is that suggested by Dicey: "It is now the established habit of any reigning king or queen," he says, "to share and give expression to the moral feelings of British subjects." That the moral feelings so expressed are those of a certain limited but dominant section of society, that same section in whose interest other constitutional understandings are framed, is the lesson suggested below as arising from the events of the abdication.
The whole study of the conventions of the Constitution, as also the study of its working institutions, suggests the fundamental importance of this integrating factor of a single dominant upper middle-class behind the political system, which works through it, and for which it is largely a facade.
