Time to make it grammatically correct..
As I've said to Justinian, with so many people amending the constitution since 2007, its inevitable that inconstiencies and errors will have crept in, especially as some amendments only amend half a sentence!
I fully support a project to examine this and look at a clean up of it. As the original author of the constitution I have quite an interest in maintaining the current document!
However, as with Justinian, I do not support any attempts to use basic English over more complex words. If we start writing for the lowest common denominator, the constitution would be reduced to words of one syllable.
My one reservation to this project is that as soon as someone passes an amendment, your work is obsolete.
Sounds like a good idea. I'm no legal expert, but I can be a bit of a grammar-nazi at times. Folks tell me that I'm rather good at expressing myself succinctly; I might be of assistance.
I'd be happy to help, even if all you need is proof-reading and the like.
Exactly how will this proceed through the Curia? It's not really a single ammendment. I suppose that there will be a vote to authorize a committee of sorts to give the Constitution an overhaul?
