Elective Dictatorship

its a phrase coined by the former Lord Chancellor of the United Kingdom, Lord Hailsham.
It describes the state in which Parliament is dominated by the government of the day. It refers to the fact that the legislative programme of Parliament is determined by the government, and government bills virtually always pass the House of Commons because of the nature of the governing party's majority.
