The philosophers have only interpreted the world, in various ways; the point is to complain about it.
I've always been suspicious of constitutional arguments based on the idea that certain changes would marginally favour one or other party - these invariably assume (wrongly) that parties and their supporters are incapable of changing their tactics. Any party with a serious intention of winning power should be able to adapt to a reasonable variety of circumstances. The real argument to be made is how constitutional change alters the political centre of gravity in the longer term.
