The mother of parliaments (expression)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Not to be confused with Mother of Parliament.
The expression is often misapplied[clarification needed] to the Parliament of the United Kingdom because of the adoption of the Westminster Model of Parliamentary Democracy by many countries of the former Empire.
