JBP’s introduction to both Houses of Parliament
2017 has been another transformational year in UK politics. Strong and stable government has been replaced with a minority Conservative administration. Are the Tories “in office but not in power”?
A hung Parliament creates one certainty: the rise in influence of the House of Commons and the House of Lords. Every MP and Peer counts in such a situation – votes can be won and lost very easily.
It’s easy to get bogged down in the headlines over Brexit – the subject that will undoubtedly dominate this Parliament. And it’s also easy to lose sight of the actual movers and shakers worth keeping an eye on in Westminster. However, JBP hopes this brief guide will help sort the wheat from the chaff and in particular provide insights on some key questions:
- Who are the rising stars who could dominate politics in the future?
- What are the key policy issues likely to cause problems for the main parties
- What role will the House of Lords play in the unfolding national drama in the years ahead
