Cracking The Cabinet

Getting to know the team that remains at the top of the political totem pole...

When studying or observing the British parliament, many people (especially young people) tend to simply acknowledge the organisation as being one large group (the government). However, in reality, the ‘government’ is nothing more than a vague umbrella term which covers a range of different groups and joint organizations. Out of all these different governmental branches, the most important group with the highest amount of responsibility is known as the Cabinet. This Cabinet group is a special group of individuals who were honourably appointed by the prime minister in order to carry out the duties of specific policy areas. This therefore grants them the right to be addressed as the senior members of parliament. These honours and titles make it obvious that being a member of the Cabinet brings responsibility in abundance but also a high amount of respect from other members of parliament.
