This paper provides a comparison and brief review of the working of the British and American systems of government. The paper illustrates that they have several major differences and some similarities too. The reasons for the differences are explained. The paper shows that supremacy of the democratically elected representatives is, however, reflected in both systems of government.
From the Paper:"The British Parliamentary system of government is one of the oldest political systems in the world that has evolved over a period of centuries. The British model has influenced the system of governments in many countries of the world including the United States. On the other hand, the US system of government is a Federal system that came into existence when the United States (the former American colonies) rebelled against British rule and declared its independence in the latter part of the eighteenth century, followed by the adoption of its own constitution in 1787. Although having some similarities with the British System of government, the US system of government is unique in several aspects, having its own characteristics. In this paper we shall look at some key features of the two systems of government and compare and contrast the British Parliamentary system of government with the United States Federal System of government."
