I'm writing notes on whether the UK should introduce a codified constitution, and the point on restricting executive power is irking me, as the notes I have contain no examples. All I can think of are things like the Terrorist Act (2006) which allowed 90 day detention with no charge, but surely that is an example of Parliamentary sovereignty, i.e. excessive legislative power? If it is not, can someone help me with some examples of executive power, or, if it is an example, do you have any more?

Now that I think about it, if we have Parliamentary sovereignty and excessive executive power, does that mean the power in both the executive and legislature is excessive, or is that a consequence of the fusion of powers we have? The more I think about this, the harder it seems to be!
