I don't think the queen has that sort of power any more. Well not since charles the 1st, And his son Charles the 2nd.
Only the Sovereign can summon Parliament, prorogue (i.e. discontinue without dissolving it) and dissolve it. When a prime minister wishes to dissolve Parliament and call a general election, he or she is obliged to seek the permission of the Sovereign to do so.

The Queen retains certain residual powers, notably to appoint a prime minister, and to decide whether or not to grant a dissolution of Parliament. The prime minister is normally the leader of the party which has a majority in Parliament, but there could still be exceptional circumstances when The Queen might need to exercise the discretion she still retains to ensure that her Government is carried on.

2.33%, not bad work if you can get it! While the AFPRB dick around and um and errr about how much the MOD should get for putting their lives on the line, Smith and Co get theirs pretty quickly. (WAIN KERRS) :angryfire:

Perhaps MPs should be paid in food stamps and the like? That way we know exactly how much of their money is going where. I am of the belief that an MP should serve their country (much like our brave men and women are doing abroad) rather than the country serving them.

I got 1.25% & a 1.25% bonus. Better than a kick in the nads in the current climate.
Oooo, lucky you. I'm at the top of my pay scale have been awarded 1% a year for 3 years plus an annual bonus (before tax) of £122! :razz: Sooooo rewarding. :roll: Better than the last three years though when my pay was frozen - that was before the economic catastrophe! Can't really complain though: I enjoy my work.

The AFPRB submitted their report on the 29th of January to the Government. Its not their fault its the w*nkers at Westminster.
