David Askander Political Science 50 Megan Gallagher 31 January 2008 Week 4 Discussion Author, Michael Sodaro, takes an in-depth and thorough overview of the British democracy, where he outlines the parties, elections, and state institutions of the country. He begins by mentioning that the United Kingdom does not have a single, established written constitution rather it is “inscribed in thousands of Acts of Parliament and court rulings that have accumulated over the centuries”. This is an essential element in grasping the idea of the British political system which allows for an understanding that the constitutional framework of the United Kingdom is based on “enduring tradition” and “adaptability to changing conditions”. Political parties in the United Kingdom are much more centrally organized than the United States. The three main political parties are the Labour (left-side of the spectrum), the Conservatives (right-side of the spectrum), and the Liberal Democrats (middle of the spectrum).
