The Cabinet Manual - as close as the UK has ever come to a written constitution - is near completion. But the British people are largely unaware of this guide to the operation of their government, despite its many flaws that urgently need addressing In the political season about to start, we can expect the appearance of the fullest ever publicly available, official statement of the rules of the UK political game. The Cabinet Manual, published in draft for consultation last December (as reported on OurKingdom at the time), is seemingly near completion. Subtitled 'A Guide to the laws, conventions and rules on the operation of government', it is likely in time to be treated by many – including in the media – as the closest equivalent to something the UK famously lacks: a ‘written’ constitution.

Her Majesty's Government (HMG),[1] commonly referred to as the British Government, is the central government of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.[2] The Government is led by the Prime Minister, who selects all the remaining Ministers. The Prime Minister and the other most senior Ministers belong to the supreme decision-making committee, known as the Cabinet.[2] The Government Ministers are all members of Parliament, and are accountable to it. The Government is dependent on Parliament to make primary legislation,[3] which means that in practice a government must seek re-election at least every five years. The monarch selects as Prime Minister the leader of the party most likely to command a majority in Parliament.[4] Government of the United Kingdom Government of the United Kingdom
Politics of the United Kingdom Politics of the United Kingdom The United Kingdom is a unitary democracy governed within the framework of a constitutional monarchy, in which the Monarch is the head of state and the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom is the head of government. Executive power is exercised by Her Majesty's Government, on behalf of and by the consent of the Monarch, as well as by the devolved Governments of Scotland and Wales, and the Northern Ireland Executive. Legislative power is vested in the two chambers of the Parliament of the United Kingdom, the House of Commons and the House of Lords, as well as in the Scottish parliament and Welsh and Northern Ireland assemblies. The judiciary is independent of the executive and the legislature. The highest national court is the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom.
Kingdom of Great Britain The Kingdom of Great Britain[note 1] was a sovereign state in north-west Europe that existed from 1 May 1707 to 31 December 1800. The state came into being with the union of the kingdoms of Scotland and England (which included Wales). With the Treaty of Union of 1706, ratified by the Acts of Union 1707, it was agreed to create a single, united kingdom, encompassing the whole of the island of Great Britain and its minor outlying islands. It did not include Ireland, which remained a separate realm under the newly created British crown. Kingdom of Great Britain
