 Lascelles Principles - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Lascelles Principles are a constitutional convention in the United Kingdom describing the circumstances under which a monarch may refuse a request from a Prime Minister for the dissolution of Parliament.
The Lascelles principles are that the monarch could refuse a dissolution if "the existing Parliament was still vital, viable, and capable of doing its job" or if the monarch "could rely on finding another prime minister who could govern for a reasonable period with a working majority in the House of Commons."
The Lascelles Principles are notable in that their formal statement was not incorporated in any governmental document, but rather were in the form of a letter in 1951 to the editor of The Times by Sir Alan Lascelles, writing under the pseudonym Senex.

 Constitutional convention (political custom) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Lascelles Principles in 1951 informally outlined the principles and issues that might lead to a refusal of a dissolution.)
Mostly, they aim to reconcile the democratic principle of majority rule with the need to achieve consensus in a nation that is much more heterogeneous in many respects than other nation-states.
The government is a body of equals composed in political proportion to the weight of the various factions in Parliament; this creates a permanent grand coalition.

 The Just Society: So how do you topple a government without triggering a dissolution?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
The only extant constitutional convention to address whether a falling Prime Minister can justly be denied a dissolution of parliament - and an election - are the Lascelles Principles, drafted in 1951 in the United Kingdom by a civil servant writing to the Times.
It would likely be very risky for the Liberal Party to defeat the Conservatives and win the tainted chalice of an extremely shaky minority through constitutional sleight of hand - but perhaps less harmful than the snap general election which Harper may be planning to win a majority with.
The Lascelles Principles may be one tool we can use to give the Liberal opposition credibility as it does battle against the Conservative agenda.

I blogged yesterday about the Lascelles Principles and how they might prevent Stephen Harper from manipulating the 39th parliament into becoming, effectively, a cynical campaign tool of the Conservative Party
They can make that argument in a crisis, when all quibbling will be partisan; but they cannot make it now.
The Principles are, as they say, merely common sense; when there are multiple viable governments in a parliament, it is ludicrous to just hand Harper his political goals (at the costs of hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars) the first time he fabricates a deadlock.

second reading, the general principles of the bill are debated.
Lord Advocate as Lord President of the Court of Session, he stated, "the principle of unlimited sovereignty of Parliament is a distinctively English principle and has no counterpart in Scottish constitutional law." He continued, "Considering that the
Union legislation extinguished the Parliaments of Scotland and England and replaced them by a new Parliament, I have difficulty in seeing why the new Parliament of Great Britain must inherit all the peculiar characteristics of the English Parliament but none of the Scottish." Nevertheless, he did not give a conclusive opinion on the subject.

That is not on account of its "kennings"—the strange device by which early popular poetry (Hesiod is another instance) tries to liberate and master the magic of words.
