Nicely put and a good example that shows how the Queen has no say in this referendum.
She doesn't have to have any say in this ADVISORY vote: she will still be the QUEEN OF SCOTLAND!

HAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

And what, prey tell would happen if the monarch - by the time the nuts and bolts of this ADVISORY POLL worked their way around to "independence" (and **if** the UK Parliament agreed)- she or he just said... ummm... no?

Putting aside of course she (or he) will still be the Queen?

If everyone knows, than you should be able to find the quote of the Queen saying she approves, disapproves, or- since she will still be the Queen of Scotland- gives a shit one way or the other.

Putting aside by the time the Parliament decides what it will do about this ADVISORY vote it will be after Queen Elizabeth is dead or passed on the reins to the next Queen.

Or perhaps William, assuming she skips over Chuck.

I guess I have to remind you, SuperFag, that I wasn't the one who was confused about how hold the power to dissolve the Parliament.

Still waiting for you to show us ANYTHING that you have refuted... outside of the things you made up and attributed to me because you are a m/f c/s liar.

The monarch can dismiss Parliament after tea today if she is inclined to do so.

I'm glad I made you mad (it's so easy). Your insecurity and lack of faith with atheism is my leverage.

As of December 1980, Obama was a doctrinaire Marxist who had been active in the anti-apartheid movement and had attended meetings of the Democratic Socialists of America. He believed that a Communist revolution in the U.S. was imminent, and that the recent election of Ronald Reagan to the presidency was nothing more than a minor set-back to that revolution.
Jeezus Christ Krispies.

The man had been your president for four (4) years.

You aren't communist. You aren't socialist. You aren't even close to socialist.

Do you have any common sense whatsoever?

Projecting, darling, and I 'd bet my garden (and orchard)- larger than yours.
A bet you will win, I am sure. I have a smal garden where I stay now.

However, the old house near Pretoria had a massive landscape -on the edge of the rural area. Only problem was a lot of snakes and scorpions snuck around so you never wanted to venture too far.

All that aside - do you do your own gardening?

I'd like to swing this past a few of the folks on here:

http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/jk...

On the John Stewart show, the guest was none other than the Harry Potter author, J.K. Rowling.

Aside from her jests that the US could do with a monarch, she did make one very good point:

She (J.K Rowling) lived on state money during the early stages of her career.(In Britain, it is called "on benefits" instead of "welfare")

Now despite the heavy criticism of some of you that you do not wish to "support the freeloaders", Rowling became one of the bestselling authors OF ALL TIME with her Harry Potter series, that led to cults of fans, a movie series and millions of supporters. Harry Potter is THE global phenomenon of the 2000-2010 era and the entire enterprise is worth not millions, but billions.

During this venture, she herself became one of the richest women in the world, and was responsible for thousand of jobs.

Now people: THIS IS WHY WE SHOULD SUPPORT THOSE IN NEED. Because every person may be a diamond in the rough.
