Perhaps we are boring you. England does not have a Bill of Rights. So you can't lose what you never had.
The English "constitution" quite different from that of the US is a collection of laws. Nor does it contain separation of legislative from executive powers, where the parliament is supposed to keep its eye peeled on executive branch. Parliament and the executive are one and the same.
Parliament can change the "constitution" by simply changing the laws.
Hence, "No Act of Parliament can be unconstitutional, for the law of the land knows not the word or the idea."
The US unlike UK does not have an Official Secrets Act. Or did not have one until Congress decided to take a nap.
fair point, I have no idea how the american government system works, or the implications, I was looking at it from a UK point of view,
