Power corrupts, one thing that stopped any talk of parliamentary reform over here was Tony Blair’s huge majority in 1997.
He could pretty much do what he wanted and not bother with parliamentary oversight because everything would just be rushed through. He became more presidential, more dictatorial.
Over here the concept of a monarch doesn’t denote authoritarianism, we’ve got Liz. She does what she’s told, her power is very small. It’s presidents who wield unchecked power, like those in former Soviet republics.
