INTRODUCTION TO THE UK PARLIAMENT HOUSES OF PARLIAMENT

Post by joachim natali on Tue Sep 25, 2018 10:33 am

Hi everybody,

This week I learned that UK is a parliamentary monarchy.
The government is represented by the first minister and ministers who have won general election. They are going to frame the general policy of the country and proposed laws.
The house of commons is composed by 650 members who are elected all around the country. They represent a political party, and the government is responsable to present and informed the house of commons of this policy and politics.
The House of Lords is composed by members appointed by the Queen on the proposal of the Prime Minister and for a term of office.
The power of the House of Lords have very decline since 19th century, and now the power of this house is after the house of commons.
His role is to amend the laws or delay them but the house cannot block proposal of laws.
The house of lords is composed by 850 members with spiritual lords and temporal lords.
The queen is also a part of the power of the UK parliament. She have to choose (after the general election) the first minister and she also have to sign the text of laws.

I hope that you enjoy this first class and tell you more next week Smile

Hi Joachim,

Just a precision. The Queen only rubber stamps the choice of the ruling party and the texts of the law. She doesn't really make any decisions and only has a theoretical power. The government would overthrow the monarchy if she actually created a law or chose a prime minister.

Hi Fanny !

Personally, I think any kind of monarchy is bad.
This is just my opinion, because I think in Republic, everyone can try to have the power, but in monarchy, it's impossible to try to become king or queen.
Also, what people can do, if the the King, or the Queen, is crazy ?
I know that the cost of the monarchy is very reasonable for the people, but I think it's unfair to charge people for the welfare of one family.
But, I also know that is a part of the British culture and i think that is pretty cool.

And you, what do you think ?
