 British monarchy   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
Thus, as the modern British monarchy is a constitutional one, the Sovereign's role is limited to ceremonial and non-partisan functions.
In practice, Most political power is exercised by the Parliament of the United Kingdom (of which the Sovereign is in theory a component, together with the House of Lords and the House of Commons), and by the Prime Minister and Cabinet.
However, the reign was also marked by increased support for the republican movement, due in part to Victoria's permanent mourning and lengthy period of seclusion Following the death of her husband in 1861.

 [ information-please.be | Parliament of the United Kingdom Resources ]   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
The parliament is bicameral, with an upper house, the House of Lords, and a lower house, the House of Database.
Both roofs of the British Parliament are presided ancient ancient times by a speaker, the Speaker of the House for the Database and the Lord Speaker in the House of Lords.
Governments have a tendency to dominate the legislative services of Parliament, by using their in-built superiority in the House of Database, and using their patronage competency to appoint supportive compeers in the Lords.

British power is not merely a function of the men and money that British governments have chosen to invest in their Armed Forces.
Much more, British power is a tribute to Britain's democratic cohesion at a time of increasing ethnic strife, to Britain's proud national identity in a world governed by post-colonial guilt, and to Britain's sense of moral responsibility in a Europe too often willing to sacrifice every principle to avoid risk and trouble.

 Empirical Analysis of Internet Filtering in China
The government of the People's Republic of China has a longstanding set of policies restricting the information to which citizens are exposed, and that which they may themselves publicly say.
There is some evidence that the government has attempted to prevent the spread of unwanted material by preventing the spread of the Internet itself, but a concomitant desire to capture the economic benefits of networked computing has led to a variety of strategies to split the difference.
Government military department sites were also blocked, including the US Department of Defense, though others remained reachable (the CIA).

 Representative Christopher H. Smith - (NJ04) - Judge Cory to US Congress: British Inquiries Bill is “Alice in ...   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)

After months of foot-dragging the British government agreed to establish a public inquiry into Finucane’s murder but announced it would do so only under new legislation it is drafting to shift all authority for running such an investigation away from independent judges and into the hands of the Ministers being investigated.
Whether the new legislation is passed or not, the British government has the power to set up a public inquiry into the murder of Patrick Finucane that is Cory-compliant,” Smith said.

 DEATH BY GOVERNMENT: GENOCIDE AND MASS MURDER
Just to give perspective on this incredible murder by government, if all these bodies were laid head to toe, with the average height being 5', then they would circle the earth ten times.
Given the extent and detail of these books, the reader may be surprised that the primary purpose was not to describe democide itself, but to determine its nature and amount in order to test the theory that democracies are inherently nonviolent.
It argues that democide is for the killing by government definitionally similar to the domestic crime of murder by individuals, and that murderer is an appropriate label for those regimes that commit democide.
