Not Quite

Umm... Not quite Mr Clarke.

The Lion continues to roar

It's actually Parliament that tells Ministers what they can, not the other way round (Bill of Rights 1689)
Nice try though.

Ho ho ho Gavin. What century are you living in exactly? :)

Gavin Whenman said...

The 21st.
When was the Bill of Rights repealed?

James said...

Effectively, at around some point in 1997.

The only reason Clarke is claiming he has the power of a despot is because that is precisely what he has got.
