9. Britain does in effect have a constitution

It's not a single written document, but it has a collection of laws, traditions, and legal rulings that together add up to the country's fundamental law.

We do have a constitution. If we collectively decide to ignore it, then we will either descend into legal chaos or, more likely, we'll quickly evolve our own collection of laws, traditions, and legal rulings that will function as our new fundamental law. The result will be the same as the current situation, but with a lot of needless disruption along the way.
