Tory call to strip the queen of powers

New Conservative Party leader David Cameron has called for the Queen to be stripped of many of her traditional powers.

Although the Queen still legally retains many "prerogative" powers, many of these are now exercised on her behalf by the elected government.

However the Queen retains a number of powers that she exercises personally. These include
- the power to dissolve Parliament
- the power to appoint a Prime Minister
- the power to award some honours

Mr Cameron has recently formed a "democracy task force" which will exam the use of some of these powers by the monarch, as well as the use of other prerogative powers (such as the power to declare war) by ministers.

  6. It is worth noting that this news article is outdated and does not reflect current events. It was published on August 16, 2005, when David Cameron was the new leader of the Conservative Party in the UK. However, as of 2023, Queen Elizabeth II still retains her powers as the constitutional monarch of the United Kingdom, and there have been no recent calls to strip her of those powers. hot tub removal

  14. As of my last knowledge update in January 2022, David Cameron served as the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 2010 to 2016. It's important to note that information about current events and political developments may have changed since then. aimlogic.com/
