The entity being described is

The British Government Which is composed of three parts: "Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God, of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and of Her other Realms and Territories Queen, Head of the Commonwealth, Defender of the Faith." who is the figurative head of Her Majesty's Government, plus Parliament which is divided into the House of Lords and the House of Commons. The House of Commons is the lesser of the 3. Kept together unwanted, because let's face it, who wants these clowns in parliament? In darkness till sorted, because honestly, is there any light and truth in Parliament until the Queen signs off on something with her rubber stamp? Our absence will give you leeway, because without the House of Commons there will be no new laws and you will have more leeway in what you are allowed to do.

  • $\begingroup$ Great answer and well thought out, seems to fit aswell so yes it could be a possible right answer, but it was not the one I originally had in mind. Though yours seems more interesting and politically charged. $\endgroup$ Commented Nov 13, 2014 at 9:19
