Losing responsibility for banking supervision was a major blow for the Bank of England, and its timing was completely unexpected (The Guardian, 7 November 1998). Institutionally, these two reforms were complementary and inextricably entwined, because the greater operational independence of the central bank was counterbalanced by the loss of most of its supervisory responsibilities, preventing the Bank from becoming too powerful an institution in the UK, which was a matter of speciﬁc concern for the Treasury (interview, London, January 2006).
This resulted in a high interest rate premium in the UK relative to other countries. The other reason for the Bank’s support for ERM membership was very much linked to the pro-European attitude of Leigh-Pemberton (Stephens 1996: 32). This became apparent during the drafting of the Delors Committee report on EMU, which was endorsed by the Governor of the Bank of England, despite the prime minister’s request not to sign it (Thompson 1996). As the prime minister opposed full membership of the ERM, Lawson decided between 1987 and 1988 that the pound should shadow the D-mark, using it as an informal target for exchange-rate and monetary policies.
Moreover, the majoritarian electoral system promotes a political system in which a limited number of political parties exist, only two of which have governing potential. In such a system the number of veto players is also very limited, facilitating institutional and policy change whenever the government so decides (Lijphart 1999). The political system is thus characterized by alternations in power and adversarial politics. The strength of the executive is attributable to several factors: all executive appointments are made by the prime minister; the main parties are relatively well disciplined internally and the government dominates the legislature; the efﬁcient civil service, though sometimes portrayed as a counterweight to the executive, actually strengthens the power of the executive; and the lack of a written constitution (Budge et al.
