I dont know how this one might go down, but no chance of finding out if not asked

Name the entity being described

Me and my family made in the UK
the lesser of 3 my siblings say
Kept together unwanted
in darkness till sorted
Our absence will give you leeway.

See what you think, if theres no interest ill assume my career is over here.

The greatest of we
alone has 99 more than me

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. $\endgroup$ – Oblongamous Nov 13 '14 at 9:19
