Gordon Brown has outlined a series of constitutional changes which he says will make the British government a "better servant of the people".
MPs would be given the final say on declaring war and on international treaties and would have a "bigger role" in approving public appointments.
Mr Brown also proposed Commons committees for each English region.
He added that election day could be moved to weekends and said he would create a national security council.
Linked to this he would "regularly publish" a national security strategy.
His proposals - in which he suggested a "bill of rights" could eventually be published after public consultation - were not a "final blueprint" but a "route map" towards change, he said.

This is what I envisage in an actual Prime Minister, not some continuously smiling slime ball whose more interested in a photo op but rather a thinker and a reformer who looks like they understand that the Government is the servant of the people.
