Brits, English, Welsh. Hmmn, no I can’t see Americans in there – can you?
Still waiting for that quote you have of me insisting that you have to follow a religion, Skanque, are you going to continue to flap your lips or are you going to prove me wrong.

Where's that quote, hey?

I did.
Did some gardening.
Planted some portuculatas, a daisy or ten, broke up a bromelia into 6 plants and moved my one Protea.

Now you get to sit back and see how God's creation grows with beauty. It's proof that God exists, right in front of you.

Naw the OT has passages showing that God hates shrimp so much that if you eat one it will stay forever in your stomach because it's such an abomination. God intelligently designed those wisdom teeth. Rabbits that have to eat their own sht to live and other great ideas Lulz!

It is good you put "elected" in quotes because most of your government isn't elected.
Most are appointed.
And the head of state... inherited.
PS: If the UK enjoys "religious freedom", why do people have to sue to be able to wear a cross to work?
Say what? Most? Wow I really do need to catch up on Americanisms, since when did eight hundred appointed compare to more than 21,000 democratically elected councillors in England alone and 650 democratically elected MPs constitute most? These Americanisms are getting wilder by the moment.

Yes I suppose the House of Lords works rather like your presidential position, Electoral College ring any bells?

Yes, that’s the beauty of a monarchy isn’t stability great?

P.S. Because every other person in the UK is responsible for and enjoys religious freedom of others not just the ones you like. You don’t seem to have a handle on responsibility do you? Never mind, maybe when you grow up.

Gosh... let's see... you RESPONDED DIRECTLY TO MY COMMENT AND AUTOQUOTED FROM ME...
i guess that's what threw me... you responding directly to my comment... lead me to believe you were responding to my comment...
It seems that it does not take much to throw you. Honey butt, you butted into a conversation, the subject of which you are clueless and so you have to rake up old BS in a sad attempt to gain any credibility (LOL) you lost. The evidence is in this thread and I have recently linked to that evidence just to remind you. Seems that once again you have deliberately forgotten. As well as not knowing much about British politics you also don’t seem to have a handle on how the internet and public threads work. In both cases you ignorance does not seem to limit your ranting.

Oh my, I wonder how many heads rolled after running too liberal a tongue?
PS:
(quote)
British citizens are covered by the European Convention on Human Rights which states: "Everyone has the right to freedom of expression."
But it adds that governments can restrict free speech for, among other reasons, in the interests of national security, preserving public safety and for the prevention of disorder or crime.
Another melt down? How many times have I suggested that you get you meds sorted out. You are going to wind up having a seizure.

I don’t really know, not something I have looked at, tell me how many native Americans were killed so the “white man” could have slaves?

Yes that’s the law. You forgot incitement to racial hatred among sever other clauses. You seem to have a serious problem with responsible laws? I wonder why that is?

You care enough to roll around on the floor and stomp your feet for the last one hundred comments or so.
I am sick of you obnoxious ignorant 14th century crap. I have given you a link directly to the queens own take on her powers to “dismiss parliament” and of course you have ignored it.

Honey I’m here for fun and the fun of watching you in meltdown is great entertainment

Why are you so stupid? What constitution? Who need an amended piece of paper telling us what we can do? We have centuries of historical imperative.

Wait all you want,, Funny this whole time zone thing is not? While you were fretting and stomping up and down busily waiting I was quietly sleeping.

When did I ever insist that you claimed we should follow a religion? As I have said before and you seem to have deliberately ignored. I made a statement about life in the UK.

Just because you are paranoid is not my problem, perhaps it’s a problem with your meds though. See your psychiatrist and ask him to pp your olanzapine and just watch how you paranoia falls away.

Oh wow, I just had a thought? Is it quetiapine you are on and not olanzapine. You really do need to see your psychiatrist, and tell him that it’s having an adverse effect on your Alzheimer's

No it's not you liar. It is proof that God exists. You are ranting again, proof that God's existence keeps you irritated.

I can tell my comment upset you as I illustrated that God exists, and all with a dumbass comment made by another militant bigoted atheist you buddy up with.

You are losing your battle against Christianity.
