Transformation of the British Political System
Houses of Parliament
While we were in London we had the opportunity to tour the Houses of Parliament. When I first walked in and went through security I noticed how beautiful the decor and architecture is. As we were walking through the building on our tour I learned many new things about Parliament and how it works. Parliament didn't change all at once it changed as the needs of government changed. When there was a monarchy one person ruled it all which was the king or queen and as the needs of society changed so did how the government operated. Going to Houses of Parliament as well as various other places taught me more about how this government functions and the different houses are used.
My Thoughts on Parliament
I thought visiting parliament was a really neat experience. I loved walking around and learning all the new things about it that I could. Governments and how they run really confuse me I haven't every really quite been able to grasp it completely. I've been learning about the American form of government for years and I still don't completely understand how it works. Learning about Parliament was no different, especially when it comes to the history of how Parliament came about and where it originated from.
