However they've got a written constitution which generally stops that kind of thing there and then. It wouldn't allow him to announce a shutdown, get the nod from Brenda, and if anyone's got a problem with that they they can see him in court sometime next year or the year after (but the case will be thrown out anyway).

Written constitutions are useful. They're a backstop, if you will. The UK should have one too.
