For cabinet most important
Cabinet resignations-damages PM makes them look weak ect....
Cabinet can overthrow the PM e.g. Thatcher
And patronage is undermined by needing a balance of ideologies and representing women minorities ect...
However I think I've messed up on my against as I've bassicaly said why the Cabinet is not important and not why it's not the MOST important. Would any of these get me marks
PM has patronage which means ministers are aware that the PM had thier careers in his hands and are less likely to challenge
PM is party leader and thus has authroity and a mandate which reduces cabinet backlash
And the less and less cabinet meetings mean minsters have less time to get there ideas across
I'm not sure if I've messed it up by not mentioning why the Cabinet isn't the *most* important. Any help would be appreciated.
However I then said how the media, parliamentary majority, personality and events outside of their control are more effective limits on the pm's power.
If anyone did the first section on parliament please say what you put because I'm unsure about the ten and twenty five marker? And if anyone got anything different for the 40 marker on the pm and her cabinet because I might have got this wrong.
