An interesting snippet on Constitutional Law/convention that impedes the renegade's plans to force legislation through:
Any Bill that has an impact on the Royal Prerogative requires 'Royal Consent' to even be discussed and debated. This has been withheld on numerious occasions and rightly so. Also any Bill that would lead to public expenditure requires, under standing orders, a money resolution which only the Government can move. The second issue is that of Royal Assent. This is the process by which any Bill becomes Law and is usually a formality.
All grist to the mill!
