The political system of Great Britain
The UK is constitutional monarchy. This means that the official head of state is the monarch, but his or her powers are limited by the constitution. The British constitution is not written in any single document.Parliament is the supreme law-making body in the country. It consists of the House of Commons and the House of Lords. The major part of Parliament's work is revising the Government's work. From Monday to Thursday all ministers must answer MP´s questions for one hour, the Prime Minister must answer their questions two days a week. Another important parliamentary task is law-making. A bill (a proposal of a new law) must pass through the Houses and then is sent to the Queen for Royal Assent. The Government is formed by the party which has the majority in the Parliament and the Queen appoints its leader as the Prime Minister. There are 2 main political parties:Conservative Party,Liberal Democrates.
The Cabinet

The Cabinet is the committee at the center of British political systém and is the supreme decision-making body in British Government.When the Cabinet meets ,Secretaries of State from all departmens,and other ministers,meet in 10 Downing Street to discuuss issues of the day.The Cabinet usually meets once a week in 10Downing Street,normally on Thursday morning in Cabinet room.Every Government´s Cabinet has meet in this room since 1856,when it was called Council Chamber.
Union Jack
British national flag is called "Union Jack". It symbolises the Union of England, Scotland and Ireland and dates back from 1801. The flag is made up of the crosses of the patron saints of England (St George's red cross on a white field), Ireland (St Patrick's red diagonals on a white field) and Scotland (St Andrew's white diagonals on a blue field). Wales is not represented because when the flag first appeared it was already united with England. The design and colours (especially the Blue Ensign) have been the basis for a number of other flags including other Commonwealth countries and their constituent states or provinces, as well as British overseas territories.
National anthem is "God Save The Queen". Each part of the UK has its own symbol:
•England - red rose
•Ireland - shamrock
•Wales - leek, daffodil
•Scotland - thistle

The flag of the United Kingdom, the Union Jack, is a superposition of the flags of Saint George(for England), Saint Andrew (for Scotland) and Saint Patrick (for Ireland). This superposition is quite intricate, and often drawn incorrectly. The next diagram shows the correct construction.

National Anthem
God save the Queen

God save our gracious Queen,
Long live our noble Queen,
God save the Queen:
Send her victorious,
Happy and glorious,
Long to reign over us:
God save the Queen.

O Lord our God arise,
Scatter her enemies,
And make them fall:
Confound their politics,
Frustrate their knavish tricks,
On Thee our hopes we fix:
God save us all.
Thy choicest gifts in store
On her be pleased to pour;
Long may she reign:
May she defend our laws,
And ever give us cause
To sing with heart and voice
God save the Queen.
