British politics can be confusing; from budgets to Brexit, there’s a lot to keep track of. To make things even more complicated, political decisions are made in a number of different places and can affect different parts of the UK.
While legislation has traditionally been passed in Westminster on behalf of the entire country, things are changing. Over the past few years, the British Government has transferred power away from the Houses of Parliament and towards national governments through a process known as devolution. The aim of devolution is to give Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland more control over their own affairs - including taxes.
