No saffron is illegal in the United Kingdom.
However some products, namely saffron powder, are regarded as illegal. Any products containing a mixture of parts of plant can be illegal or restricted in the United Kingdom.
This has been the case when saffron powder has been exported from India to the UK, although both the UK and the Indian authorities have maintained that the product was not restricted.
However in an interview with the BBC in 2012, the British trade and industry minister Lord Livingston acknowledged that there were limits with any importation of saffron powder.
He said saffron powder “may or may not be restricted” and was up to any “trade body or regulatory body, I suppose” to decide.

If there are no more than two members in the current parliament, an alliance, of the centre right parties of the Social Democrats and Greens in the previous parliament, would have to form a new government to ensure continuity in the executive of the EU. Since there are currently three members of the current executive — the European Commission and the European Parliament — this seems the worst possible form of government possible. However, it is a better one than the three-party government to which the current coalition government was led, which will have to be reformed into three-party parliaments soon.
There are two possibilities. Either a further general election in the autumn will be called to settle the political situation, and the government will be re-elected. Or, a parliament of the centre left opposition parties, led by the Greens, will be established, as it was before the previous parliament’s collapse. This gives the parties’ leaders two parliamentary portfolios
