In Power

It is neither superheroes nor automata but human beings who pace the corridors of Westminster and Whitehall, often feeling anything but powerful.

How is power balanced around Parliament Square between the Legislature, the Judiciary and the Executive? What of the soft power of religion and the monarchy?
