Parliament is not sovereign!

Advantages: checks and balances between institutions in power
Disadvantages: power is diluted between institutions, no clear sovereign institution at the moment

...It may be argued that Britain is no longer ruled by the British parliament and that Parliament no longer has ‘ultimate power’ over legislation. Sovereignty of the British parliament has been dispersed within the past century, mostly the latter half. Withi ...

Review of Is Parliament still sovereign?

Bitter medicine

Advantages: Some of the substance
Disadvantages: All of the style

Speaking as someone who always loathed her and never voted for her party, I believe Margaret Thatcher’s premiership was, on balance, good rather than bad for Britain. But what a difficult balance it is to strike, with heavy weights on both sides of the ...

I've read a lot in the last few weeks about the legacy of Margaret Thatcher, both good and bad, and for a time I did waver a little on which side to fall. I grew up under Thatcher, I was 10 when she took power, and 21 when she was ousted (by those same co ...

Review of Thatcher's premiership: Good or bad for Britain?

A very mixed balance sheet

Advantages: See review
Disadvantages: See review

The jury is out, and will be for a long time. The eleven-year tenure as Prime Minister of Margaret Thatcher, a towering figure in British politics - Ed Miliband’s words, not mine - was good and bad for Britain. According to a Sunday Times YouGov poll af ...
