This issue has arisen because our Parlimentary system is weighted in such a way as to protect us from a Monarch who wants all of the power but not a Prime Minister. We have no effective way of checking an out of control government, Cromwell forgot to consider a future with New Labour in power. The Queen in her Coronation Oath pledged her commitment to our laws and traditions but will not reign in an out of control government (her government by the way) Unfortunatley the wrong person as PM with a large majority becomes head of state effectively with Parliment there to rubber stamp thier laws. We are experiencing a situation not too dissimilar to the state that existed prior the English Civil War - we have come full circle in our experiment in democracy. We will experience history in the making and we will be able to tell our grandchildren we were there.Matthew Wilkinson, 14 years ago.
