OH SKANQUE! You have moved the GOALPOSTS!]

HAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!

You told us the 'fist' enigma was captured from the submarine!

HAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAH!

And it was **ME** who told you that the first enigma (S) was not captured elsewhere before the more famous capture from the submarine.

You do remember when Packy was insisting the British captured the U505 and I had to inform him it was the Americans who captured the U505 and you jumped into the conversation without reading as you always do screaming that I was wrong?

And that you tried to recover by insisting the Brits captured the fist' enigma from a submarine and I informed you that even that was wrong?

The USA had more ships, as I proved with my post and you were unable to disprove, outside the blip when the USA gave the UK fifty destroyers to fight in the Battle of the ATlantic for access to UK bases.

You know, when you were insisting the US did little in turning back the AXIS in WWII...

The prime minster of the UK is appointed, Odoriferous.

By the UK monarch. It is one of his/her many powers.

The UK is a monarchy. Remember?

Let's see if Skanque jumps in and tells you that you are wrong.

Without regard to the actual fact that the PM is appointed by the monarch.

Do you vote for who will be president?
I cast a vote for POTUS. Sometimes the person for whom I vote becomes president, sometimes he/she does not, that is how it works in a democracy.

In a monarchy, subjects have no say at all.

The UK is a monarchy, yes or no?

The actual fact is the UK (and the Allies) would have lost had it not been for the intervention of the USA.

Period.

The prime minister is elected, and then rubber stamped by the queen, its a traditional ceremonial, the queen has no choice, she approves whoever the people elect, that is her job, a rubber stamper

Fact unless Japan and Germany has not declared war on the US then the US would have continued profiting from both sides
The US was supporting the UK long before WWII was declared in spite of the the fact the US was supposedly "neutral".

Putting aside WWII in Europe was- and here is the tricky part- a European war which was a direct result of the previous European war, WWI.

You are such an idiot, the monarchy qppoint whoever the people elect, she can't just appoint anyone you test, can you imagine what would happen if she tried to do that, the monarchy would be disbanded and they would lose everything, in a democracy like britain tge role of the monarchy is to have pomp and ceremony and attract tourists, the monarchy were stripped of their powers centuries ago, now their role is to keep out of the way, keep their mouths shut, do as their told,and rubber stamp whoever the voters elect as prime minister, the monarchy are not even allowed to talk about politics, they have to be impartial, their role is purely ceremonial, I know you hate the fact that britain is more democratic and free than usa, but there's nothing you can do about it, is there.

You can't change facts, the fact is that the UK was winning the war without usa, and Britain would have still won without USA, germanys threat to Britain was defeated in the battle of britain, long before usa got involved, from the battle of Britain onwards it was militarilt impossible for Germany to invade britain, they didn't have the capability, juat like they didn't in russia, so world war two was being won long before America got involved and would have continued to do so without america, can you give me a possible scenario of how Germany could threaten britain, they couldn't, they didn't have the ability, or resources to invqde Britain, thats why they never did, after they lost the battle of Britain it was game over, germany were then powerless militarily to be a threat to Britain, and invading Russia ensured that germany would lose, so really you had no impact, at best you shortened the war by a little bit, but Britain and russiqs role was much bigger, greater and more important than Americas, you cant change facts my deluded friend

Your spelling errors make it hard for anyone to read a complete sentence and that is before they get to making a judgement re: content... besides laughing themselves silly thinking that you think you can call anyone else an idiot.

The monarch appoints the PM in the UK.

This is a fact.
