 National Liberal Party (UK) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
At Westminster the independent Liberals were in a shattered state, with the tiny Parliamentary Party representing all shades of opinion and it was doubtful that the new leader, Clement Davies (himself a former Liberal National who had defected back to the independent Liberals) could carry all of his colleagues into a united party.
Liberal Associations who supported National Liberal candidates remained affiliated to the National Liberal Federation until that body was dissolved in 1936, whilst one Liberal National Cabinet Minister, Walter Runciman, remained President of the National Liberal Federation even after the two groups were on opposite sides of the Commons.
The National Liberals evolved as a distinctive group within the Liberal Party in 1931 when the main body of Liberals were maintaining in office the second Labour government of Ramsay MacDonald, who lacked a majority in Parliament.

 Constitution - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The United States Constitution of 1787 (ratified 1789) which was heavily influenced by the (considerably modified) Magna Carta, plus the writings of Polybius, Locke, Montesquieu, and others, is often considered the oldest codified national constitution in the modern sense, and in any case remains the oldest such document still in effect.
States such as the United Kingdom that have uncodified constitution are usually ones in which there is parliamentary supremacy and in which the constitution can be changed by a simple statute law and in which the courts do not have the authority to strike down statutes passed by parliament and declare them to be unconstitutional.
A codified constitution is one that is contained in a single document, which is the single source of constitutional law in a state.

 National security - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
National security refers to the public policy of maintaining the integrity and survival of the nation-state through the use of economic, military and political power and the exercise of diplomacy, in times of peace and war.

The measures adopted to maintain national security in the face of threats to society has in turn led to ongoing dialectic, particularly in liberal democracies, on the appropriate scale and role of authority in matters of civil and human rights.
