In 1721 Britain became a full constitutional monarchy, under George I, when a single parliamentarian (Robert Walpole) became head of government in the office of First Lord of the Treasury, which later became known as “Prime Minister”. By this time Britain had the largest and most powerful Empire in history and the British people were the freest in the world.
Finally the democracy came in 1918 with the Representation of the People Actwhich saw the size of the electorate triple from 7.7 million to 21.4 million.
