The UK is a monarchy in the sense that it has a monarch. It is a parliamentary democracy.<quoted text>
It isn't entirely ceremonial and we both know it.
The trick is to see if you want to 'admit' it.
I've already given an example (recent) but when people are unable to even allow them to say the UK is a monarchy... what is the point?
E.G., the pack of Tommies who cannot 'admit' the UK is a monarchy.
I am simply trying to point to a more useful understanding of the UK than that currently proffered by you. I hope one day that your understanding will be better and I think your current views seem partly motivated by some kind of antagonism? Personally I feel no animosity towards you, any other contributor, the British, USAmericans, religionists, atheists or anyone.(I'm not particularly 'British' come to that:-).
