Under what precedent might that be allowed to happen?

The Monarch is not constitutionally permitted arbitrarily to dissolve parliament on a whim.

Do you have to try to come out with such poor spelling, when promulgating such stupid ideas?
Perhaps it is simply natural talent triumphing over education?

No I don’t think the Queen should be dragged into the House of Commons filthy little constitutional games, they have managed to wreck one institution why involve another one. If the question was should the Queen have the thieving scum’s heads stuck on a pole outside the tower then yes but we better order more poles we might need a few more.

Tut! It's One Army now. The TA can hold the fort over the weekend.

In fact, when you come back on Monday morning, bring some pink paint because all the world globes will need updating.

The Queen disolving Parliament is a one use nuclear option.
Therefor I voted no. As much as I would like it to happen it is something best reserved for when somebody (like Mr Brown) tries to cancel elections on some pretext.

Thats perhaps convention 'Tommy' but we are approaching perhaps a constitutional crisis of sorts from the Palace of Westminster's own attitude and behavior.

Question Time followed by This Week was very enlightening as to both the depth of the malaise and failure to understand the feeling of those the serve amongst the politico's and what is needed to clear the house of the wretched thieves, to satisfy the public.

Thus IMO an open deck and common support for the monarchy re: dissolution.

Dissolving Parliament is all very well, but did anybody create a Restore Point before Labour came into power?
 
#15
Stil think that of the many who have entered the houses of Westminster, Mr G Fawkes had the best idea
 
#16
Just as a point of order, are MPs considered perfidious by nature of their appointment?

It's as well to sort out the RoE before we start.
 
#17
No. Probably the best way to damage the Monarchy is giving all those "Republicans" (string 'em up) something legitimate to complain about.

The Monarch should only intervene if democracy is actually threatened (i.e. Brown tries to avoid actually having an election. Yes, I know he dodged when he came to power). Anything else risks damaging the institution beyond repair.

Besides, we've got less than a year to wait anyway.

Spot on HJ regarding Westminsters failure to understand how angry people are and how damaged the situation is - it really exposese the supreme arrogance of many of the MP's who have spent our money and think this to be a mistake that can simply be corrected and then carry on normal jogging. The next month is going to be the real test as the Daily Telegraph are nowhere near through the worst of the revelations!

On the point of the Queen - I would have thought at this stage that were she to dissolve Parliament and seek to form an emergency Govt she would have the support of the majority - I certainly hope she has threatened this in her weekly meetinsg with Broon - how I would love to be a fly on the wall there!

So, next week, then? :twisted:

I believe she could (and should) dissolve Parliament and rule through the Privy Council until a new structure for governing the country is implemented.

Henry Porter summed up the reforms I'd support:

Reduction in the number of MPs
all expenses to be recorded in public within two months of being incurred
all meetings with lobbyists entered into open record
Ministers barred from taking a job with companies that have dealings with their former or related departments
Committee chairmen to be chosem by MPs not Whips
An all-part authority to control Whips and ensure the free expression of an MPs conscience
More scrutiny of secondary legislation, especially that which involves rights, privacy and liberty
Stricter limits on government patronage and special advisers
A written constitution and an entrenched bill of rights (and responsibilities!)
Proportional representation.

I'd add to that - maximising the debating time for major bills (i.e. Lisbon, Maastricht not being pushed through with no scrutiny)
Reform of the House of Lords to be completed - an elected upper house as the goal
MPs pay linked to the Old Age Pension, and to the nation's performance against fiscal and other goals.
No MP's pension to exceed that of a mid-Ranked Civil Servant (they have plenty of time and money to make separate arrangements, like the rest of us have to.)
