British government is democratic government. So, too, is American government; it roots are
buried deep in English political and social history. Yet there are important differences
between the two systems of government. Most of those differences grow out of this
fundamnetally important point: Unlike government in the United State, government in Great
Britain is unitary and and parlimentary in form and rests upon an unwritten constitution.
They rule what they call a monarchy.

The Monarchy
In contrast to such republics as the United States and France, Britain has a hereditary
ruler; so Great Britain is a monarchy. Its monarch bears the title of queen or king. While
English monarchs once ruled with absolute power, their role has changed , and they are now
little more than figureheads. Because her powers and duties are controlled by Britain's
unwritten constitution, Elizabeth II, Britain's queen since 1952, is known as a
constitutional monarch.

In formal terms, all acts of the British government are performed in the name of the
queen. The queen does appoint the prime minister, byt her choice is subject to the
approval of the House of Commons. So, traditionally, she chooses the leader of the
majority party in that house to be prime minister. She has no power to dismiss the prome
minister.
