Politics

The Labour Party  Currently the UK's ruling party.  Socialist.  Prime Minister - Tony Blair; Deputy Prime Minister - John Prescott; Chancellor of the Exchequer - Gordon Brown; Foreign Secretary - Jack Straw; Home Secretary - David Blunkett.

The Conservative Party   The main opposition party; leader - Ian Duncan-Smith.  Right wing, but not as far right as say the American Republicans.

The Liberal Democratic Party   The third main party; leader - Charles Kennedy.  Sort of somewhere in the middle politically, but these days probably more left than the Labour Party.

All UK Parties Political Register  This site lists all registered political parties in the UK and links to any web-sites they have.  Here you can find links to the Welsh and Scottish Nationalist parties etc, plus some of the wonderfully eccentric British political parties there are around like the Monster Raving Loony Party.
