This is the second time in this country’s history that the country has been precipitated into a constitutional crisis. The first was in 1965 with the Unilateral Declaration of Independence (UDI) by the Smith government, and second is the coup that took place in November 2017. Whilst both looked innocuous at the beginning, the long-term consequences might not be so. UDI took a long time before the real consequences became apparent, and a bloody civil war emerged. It is to be hoped that this new constitutional crisis will not have such serious long-term consequences.
