A guide to the UK system of government nears completion - but where are the public?

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. For this reason alone, it matters. These deficiencies have been highlighted in a pamphlet co-authored by Peter Hennessy and myself, published by ippr this week. Home page.

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.

Politics of the United Kingdom

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.

With the partition of Ireland, Northern Ireland received home rule in 1920, though civil unrest meant direct rule was restored in 1972. History[edit] The Crown[edit] Domestic Powers Foreign Powers. 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.

Kingdom of Great Britain

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. A single parliament and government, based at Westminster, controlled the new kingdom.
