Are British Prime ministers as powerful as is sometimes claimed?
It is often argued that in this day and age, Prime ministers are almost untouchable within the British political system, due to the shear number of powers that the Prime minister holds, and the prerogatives that he utilises. However, due to a handful of checks and balances on the government, and the Prime minister not being separated from the political system, which means he or she is liable to these checks and limitations, the Prime minister may therefore not be perceived as all that powerful.
As previously mentioned, the Prime minister enjoys a collection of powers within the UK political system. Firstly, the...

In this essay am going to agree that the government should give subsides to car manufactures. In recent days there is a lot happening regarding car manufacturing industries.We see business being taken over by other shareholders overseas and the common news which we hear every day that is cutting jobs. If the government does not provide the automotive industry with enough assistance, the companies will easily go to liquidation. In my opinion this stops the outside people from taking over and jobs being lost. However, it is good for business too when an overseas individual or a firm occupies the business in the country. According to economics outside business can boost the business of the...

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was born in the town of Porbander in the state of what is now Gujarat on 2 October 1869. He had his schooling in nearby Rajkot, where his father served as the adviser or prime minister to the local ruler.

Nowadays the media play a great role in a usual life of society. It influences our opinion, help us to make the correct choice sometimes and also open the view on almost any fact or personality we are interested in. The role of media plays too great part in the political process also, especially when it is time to elect a new president or a prime minister. It opens curtains on every private peculiarity about the candidate: with whom he meets and what he eats. Sometimes the information is becoming ridiculous. Do we need such a close look to someone’s private life? Most of the information is just riveting but not useful. But peeping Tom journalism becomes more and more demanded.

Jules Ferry is known for being a politician and twice the Prime Minister of France in the 18th century. Ferry wrote a pro-expansion speech to recite for the French Parliament on March 28, 1884.

‘’Suffragettes was the name given to women who demanded the right to vote in elections.’’
The Suffragettes Movement was set up in 1897. This movement was set up because women wanted Parliament to address women’s issues and a Parliament full of men would never do this. Women teachers, doctors and those who worked in factories and mills had shown that they were capable of doing jobs...

Stephen Frears, utilises the director's imagined memories of the events succeeding Diana's death to portray the Queen, and her actions, in a warmer light. A compelling and challenging view of Diana is also presented in the film, furthering Frears' purpose of convincing the audience of the difficulty of the Queen's position and hence softening the public image of her. Diana is initially presented through a montage of grainy archival footage, where Diana almost seems to be courting and teasing the media with her image. While this archival media footage adds authenticity to Frears' account, it also demonstrates how insulting this behaviour would have been to the rigid policies of the monarchy....

HART held intensive planning meetings, and, after laying out their nonviolent protest strategies to the New Zealand security director, he was forced to recommend to the government that the Springboks not be allowed in the country.

We respect countries and people who respect themselves. Costa Rica is truly a tiny country, but it eliminated its military, developed peaceful relations with its neighbors, and is by far the most prestigious country in its neighborhood. ...

have been advanced by their advocates as powerful organizing themes for an
emergent style of public safety.
How these themes have influenced American policing is yet uncertain. The range and complexity of programs associated with police practices have often precluded systematic scientific investigation. Moreover, community...

He shows his personal views giving the impression of negativity as this is the only source of feeling towards that particular person. ‘Made by a sinister Minister of Internal Repression.’ Using the shocking story of the suicide on BBC News tries to persuade the reader that surveillance is used as cruel bait for prime time television for the rest of the nation to gawp at this man’s final moments.
