TookScottish Prime Minister Nicola Sturgeon stands and signs. The leader of the independence movement announced the holding of a referendum on the separation of the province in 2023. To derail this initiative, 10 Downing Street’s tenant, Boris Johnson, has an unremarkable asset: Queen Elizabeth II. In fact, if the sovereign has no constitutional capacity, he has a significant power of influence.
The sovereign rules but does not rule. It is the cornerstone of the system of parliamentary monarchy implemented across the channel. Royalty delegates its powers to the occupant of “Number Ten”, who exercises them in his own name, but does politics as he pleases.
