The Government of Great Britain & Ireland is the central government of the Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland. The government is led by the prime minister, who selects all the remaining ministers. The prime minister and the other most senior ministers belong to the supreme decision-making committee, known as the Cabinet. The Cabinet is the ultimate decision-making body of the executive within the Westminster system of government in traditional constitutional theory. The government is responsible for administrating the British Empire which rules from the deserts of South Africa all the way to the tropical jungles of the West Indies. The British Empire covers a giant 5,635,697 sq miles. It is true that the sun shall never set upon the British Empire.

Political Information

The Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland is ruled by a single monarch between the 17th Century to present day except during the interregnum of William III and Mary II. Unlike the co-monarchy period, the single monarch of the Kingdom of Great Britain is ruled by the power of a single crown, the Crown of England. Then after the co-monarchy period of Queen Anne, George I and now our king, George II lead as a single monarch. Due to English Bill of Rights, and later the English Act of Settlement the succession to the throne was to go to a English monarch, rather than the Scottish alternative, due to the Act of Security. The adoption of the Act of Settlement required that the British monarch be a protestant descendant of Sophia of Hanover, which helped install George I as King and begin the Hanoverian Dynasty.

Legislative power was vested in the Parliament of Great Britain, which replaced the Parliament of England and the Parliament of Scotland after the Act of Union of 1707. After the succession of the Parliament of England. The Parliament of Great Britain included three elements: the House of Commons, the House of Lords, and the Crown-in-Parliament. England and Scotland were given seats in both the House of Lords and the House of Commons of the new parliament. Today, the House of Commons passes and speak about issues the nation is facing.

Here is the Constitution of Great Britain. This British constitution is not just one single document but is drawn from legislation, treaties, judicial precedents, convention, acts of parliament and etc...

N.B.: the official designation is the "United Kingdom of Great Britain"

 (Trade)


Key:

  • Allied = Nations or groups that have joined in an amity and association for mutual benefit or to achieve some common purpose (such as a military alliance, or a non-aggression pact); trade is normally if not always established between allied nations.
  • Friendly = Nations or groups that share a mutual understanding, and have enjoyed a period of peace and prosperity; cooperation is likely and negotiation is welcomed. Alliances or treaties of union besides trade are nonexistent.
  • Neutral = Not aligned with or in other terms; acting in a non-belligerent stance(not supporting any side or taking any position in a controversy by not assisting or participating in a dispute or war between others).
  • Indifferent = Having no particular interest or sympathy with one another in foreign affairs; apprehensive towards each other's actions and policies, but non-belligerent towards them; trade is not normally established between indifferent nations, but embargoes are likely, but uncommon.
  • Hostile = Not in engaged in armed conflict; in a state of disagreement, uneasy peace, and characterised as unsympathetic towards each other. Embargo is common between hostile nations
  • At War = Engaged in armed conflict or state of total war; in a state of disagreement, usually of more than two nations or smaller groups engaged in armed hostilities. Embargo is common between nations at war.
  • Unknown = Diplomatic relations not yet established or faction not yet discovered.
  • (Trade) = Indicates the basic economic concept that involves multiple (two) parties participating in the voluntary negotiation and then the exchange of one's goods and services for desired goods and services that someone else possesses. Diplomatic stance does not directly affect this instance, but being aligned with a faction does increase the probability of a successful trade negotiation.
  • (Embargo) = Indicates a partial or complete prohibition or ban on trade and commerce with a particular nation or a group of nations. Embargoes are considered strong diplomatic measures imposed in an effort, by the imposing country, to elicit a given national-interest result from the country on which it is imposed, whether it is to display international disapproval, or respond to a hostile act that does not warrant a declaration of war.
  • (Protectorate) = A protectorate is a territory which is not formally annexed but in which, by treaty, grant or other lawful means, the Crown has ultimate power and jurisdiction. Trade is automatically established upon the declaration of a protectorate.
  • (Princely State) = A princely state (also called a native state or Indian state) is a semi-independent state within the British EIC Indian Empire where a native Indian prince held rule on behalf of the British rather than them holding direct control over the state. Princely states can not have relations with other states without British approval.
  • (Protected State) = A protectorate differs from a "protected state". A protected state is a territory under a ruler which enjoys His Britannic Majesty's protection, over whose foreign affairs he exercises control, but in respect of whose internal affairs he does not exercise jurisdiction.

Trade

  • Great Britain ranks first for the total metric tonnage of its merchant navy and holds approximately 850,000 metric tons (840,000 Imperial tons).
  • In the Mediterranean, British merchants sell shortcloth and kerseys in Smyrna and Aleppo in the Ottoman Empire as well as in Naples, Messina, Palermo, Malta, Alicante, Valencia. All British Mediterranean trade is regulated and dominated by the British Levant Company.
  • In West Africa, British merchants buy slaves (on average 68,000 Africans per year) and transport them to be sold in the Americas. Slave trade is the richest part of British trade at this current time. British Calabar is one of the major slave-trading ports on the Bight of Benin, the Slave Coast.
  • In South Africa, the Cape Colony originated in 1652 as a settlement of the Dutch East India Company. With the development of its trading empire in Southeast Asia, the company sought to establish a refreshment station on the shipping route from Europe. In 1726, Cape Colony was ceded from the Dutch Republic to the British after a costly war that relinquished occupation of the Dutch West Indies. Cape Colony became an important resupply depot for ships of the British East India Company allowing the trade company to expand itself greatly into the Indian subcontinent in the many years to come.
  • In India, the East India Company is very active. It has three autonomous presidencies: Bombay (present-day Mumbai), Madras (present-day Chennai) and Calcutta (present-day Kolkata). As of 1748, annual dividends yielded an average of 12%. However, during times of war, deficits replaced benefits. Perception of local taxes (diwani), sales of custom licenses (dastaks) and loans of military services to local princes were the only means to cover the expenses of the war. The company buys pepper, spices, tea, indigo, textiles (muslin, shawl, calico), leather, jewellery, woollen carpet and saltpetre. It sells wool, velvet, metal, glass, European liqueurs, weapons, and horses.
  • In Burma, the British has, since 1735, a counter at Cape Negrais at the southwestern tip of the Irrawaddy delta where they bought teak. In 1744, a British Officer was proclaimed the King of Siam, after he had killed the current king, Rama I. A year later, in 1745, the young officer gifted the entire Kingdom to King George, who rewarded the officer with its governorship. Burma, and Siam was later included in the East India Company's Raj.
  • On Borneo, the East India Company has a counter at Banjarmasin since 1738, which is supplied by the East India Company's province of Singapore. The city-state was first made a colony by King James I of England in 1612, on the basis of the Eastern Asian Colonization Charter (also acquired from the charter was India, Taiwan, and Shanghai).
  • In China, British merchants primarily purchase tea. Great Britain is the first country where the consumption of tea has spread among a large part of the population. However, tea is not the only merchandise that merchants are bringing back from China. They also purchase silk, cotton fabric, varnish, nacre, lacquer, China being very self-sufficient, most of the merchandises must be paid in silver by the British merchants. Commerce with China is currently dwarfed by trade/colonial expansion in India.
  • Commerce with the 13 colonies of continental North America is regulated by the Navigation Acts of 1651 and 1660 which reserves all trade to British vessels. Furthermore most exports (tobacco, sugar, molasses, indigo, furs, wood, naval furniture) from these colonies has to be exclusively destined to Great Britain while exports of grains, flour, rice, vegetables, fruits and salted fish can be sent to any nation. Imports have to be transported by ships coming from British ports. The only other imports tolerated is currently wines (from Madeira, Azores and Canary Islands) and salt destined to fisheries. Since 1733, prohibitive duty fees on sugar and molasses theoretically prevent any trade between British and French colonies. However, these measures just promote smuggling in and out of French and Spanish Antilles, mostly dominated by pirates, and foreign privateers. Furthermore, the 13 colonies are not allowed to establish heavy industry (for ex: foundries) but naval construction is promoted and subsidised.

The War Office

The War Office, responsible for the Army, was originally the Secretary at War's office. The first holder of the post was killed in battle - at sea - against the Dutch in 1666. It was not at first a big spending Department; office expenses for six months of 1673 amounted to £14 9s 0d. Horse Guards remained the military nucleus of the British Army, however through the years of increasing importance, the War Office has become the political epicentre for the British Army and the Royal Navy.

The Admiralty

The oldest of the Departments of the  War Office is the Admiralty, responsible for the Navy. In 1546 Henry VIII created a Navy Board to oversee the administrative affairs of the naval service; policy direction, operational control and maritime jurisdiction remained in the hands of the Lord High Admiral. From 1628 this post was more often than not filled by a "committee" of Lords Commissioners - the Board of Admiralty, whose head was the First Lord, the Minister who was the political master of the Navy. For 200 years the Navy was run by these two Boards, under a system devised largely by Samuel Pepys. The organisation served well enough during the wars with the Spanish, Dutch and French, but relations between the two boards were not always harmonious.

The British East India Company

The English East India Company is a English/British joint-stock company for med by London merchants due to their success on placing a English foothold in India when Queen Elizabeth I granted a royal charter which soon developed into a international trading company for pursuing trade with the East Indies but which ended up trading mainly with the Indian subcontinent. The "Jewel of the Crown" refers to the British colony of India controlled by the British East India Company for it's large resources for economical and political control. The recent expansions in India are due to recent victories against other nations of powers which was had a firm hold of India before their defeat. Although they have a larger presence in the Indian subcontinent they still have trade influences meaning in turn British imperialist influences in other parts of the East Indies along with a new presence for conducting British trade in the West Indies and the rest of the Orient.

Forms of address

During debates in Parliament, MPs and peers do not refer to each other by name but by a variety of formal titles according to their status.



This polite tone is adopted in an attempt to maintain order and good humour during debates. In addition, parliamentarians do not address each other directly in debates.



Instead, MPs direct their points to the Commons Speaker and peers speak to the House of Lords as a whole.



Most MPs are referred to as "the Honourable Member for..." followed by the name of their constituency or as either "the Honourable gentleman" or "the Honourable lady".



If the MP being addressed is a member of the same party they are referred to as "my Honourable friend".



If the MP is a practising lawyer he or she is referred to as "Honourable and Learned".



If a member is a past or present member of the armed forces they may be addressed as "Honourable and Gallant".



"Right Honourable" indicates a member of the Privy Council - normally a past or present minister. 



In the House of Lords, peers refer to each other as "my Noble friend", "the Noble Lord", "the Noble and Gallant Lord", or "the Noble and Learned Lord".



Peers are more likely to refer to members of other parties or groups as "friend" if they are friends in a real sense, even though this is not strictly correct parliamentary language while in the chamber.

Cabinet Descriptions

The Sovereign - Put simply, in charge of all decisions and the entire nation. The Head of State, head voice and authoritative figure used as a ruling note. Everything must be approved by him (or her), and he controls all departments and divisions of government but indirectly controls Parliament through his (or her) chosen Prime Minister. (1st)

The Prime Minister - The second-in-command to the monarch. It is the Prime Minister who controls the majority of Parliament, assumes post as leader in the absence of the monarch, and is head of HM Government during parliamentary debates. Leads all political, economic, military affairs, and is the leading figure in the government next to the King and oversees government in general. The Prime Minister may be a Lord or a Common, and may also conjointly be the Leader of the House of Commons/Lords. (2nd)

The Secretary of State for the Southern Department (Foreign Office) - A senior official within the Government and head of the Foreign Office. The office is a cabinet-level position, and is considered one of the Great Offices of State. It is considered a position similar to that of Foreign Minister in other countries. The Secretary of State's remit includes: relations with foreign countries, matters pertaining to the empire and the overseas territories in addition to the promotion of British interests abroad. The more senior Secretary of State for the Southern Department was responsible for relations with the Catholic and Muslim states of Europe. (3rd)

The Secretary of State for the Northern Department (Home Office) - A senior official as one of the Great Offices of State within His Majesty's Government and head of the Home Office. The office is a British Cabinet level position. The Home Secretary is responsible for the internal affairs of England and Wales, and for immigration and citizenship for Great Britain. The remit of the Home Office also includes policing in England and Wales and matters of national security. The Secretary of State for the Northern Department, the more junior of the two, was responsible for foreign relations with the Protestant states of Northern Europe. (4th)

The Lord High Chancellor (Justice) - In charge of the judicial and disciplinary department. Advisor to the monarch, and leading figure in the Prime Minister's cabinet. May be present at both Houses, but may only sit with HM Government in the House of Commons. Presumed Head of the House of Lords, if present. The Lord Chancellor is the presumed Lord Keeper of the Great Seal, unless a separate Lord Keeper is appointed by the monarch. (5th)

The Lord President of the Council (Privy Council) - The fourth of the Great Officers of State of England, ranking below the Lord High Treasurer but above the Lord Privy Seal. The Lord President usually attends and is responsible for presiding over meetings of the Privy Council, presenting business for the monarch's approval. (6th)

The Lord Lieutenant of Ireland (Ireland/Minister without portfolio) - HM chief representative to Ireland and head of the Irish government. The Lord Lieutenant always holds a position on the British Cabinet as a sort of minister without portfolio. Nonetheless a very influential position. (7th)

The Master-General of the Board of Ordnance (Royal Army) - A very senior British military position, usually held by a serving general. The Master-General of the Ordnance was responsible for all British artillery, engineers, fortifications, military supplies, transport, field hospitals and much else, and was not subordinate to the commander-in chief of the British military. (8th)

The First Lord of the Admiralty (Royal Navy) - When the office of Lord High Admiral was "put into commission" it was exercised by a board of Lords Commissioners (or "Sea Lords") headed by a First Lord of the Admiralty, and not by a single man. The office of First Lord remained a political one which did not need to be filled by a professional naval officer, although it sometimes was. (9th)

The Paymaster of the Forces (Military administration) - Primary Military chief that organizes the distribution of the Armed Forces and handles recruitment offices. A key entry level position to the Cabinet. Holds the position of Treasurer of the Navy as well, which is the equivalent position for HM Sea forces. (10th)

The Lord Privy Seal (Minister without portfolio) - Formerly one of the most influential and sought after positions in the British government, today has no official functions and serves as the more junior minister without portfolio in contrast to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland. Holders are not confered membership to the House of Lords and may be either Lords or Commons MPs. Usually held in conjunction with Leader of the House of Lords or Leader of the House of Commons, to grant them a position on the Cabinet. (11th)
