General Elections:

The United Kingdom has a system of parliamentary government. By this we mean that the Government must enjoy the support of Parliament - in other words a larger number of Members of Parliament (MPs) vote with the Government that against it.
The most crucial event in British politics is therefore the general election because its result decides which men and women become Members of Parliament. This, in turn, determines who forms the Government.
