I am not arguing, HOney, I am stating a fact: the UK is a monarchy.

I think he sits at home with the lights off and worries about which country will be attacked next by the Nazis.

The name of the island that England is located on is:_________

a) Britain
b) Isle of Fogg (but then... I repeat myself)
c) Geologically, Britain isn't an isle, it's a concept

Rubbish such as Ireland is an island west of England and the UK is a monarchy and Northern Ireland is part of Ireland and the USA captured the U505 and and the prime minister of the UK is appointed and fictional movies are... fictional.
Maybe someday the NotBots will find an error in my posts... instead of insisting the sun doesn't really rise.
The "UK" is properly called "The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland".

Look it up, Pookie.

The UK didn't abuse it's democracy to murder Vietnamese civilians either.
It murdered millions of Africans setting up its slavery ring.

And murdered millions more of native populations where ever its ships landed and some white guy got out and claimed the land for this king or that.

Putting aside it has been a monarchy since it's inception.

It isn't, numbnuts.
It is like asking "Are there one hundred pennies in a dollar, yes or no?".
A loaded question, you dolt, no matter how hard you stomp your feet, has a "loaded" false or questionable presupposition.
Everyone in this forum knows the UK is, in fact, a monarchy. As there are 100 pennies in the dollar and, as I stated above, Ireland is an island to the west of England.
Exactly the tapdance I predicted you'd attempt.

So what?

Do you want me to post the times you refer to it as UK?

Say $10 each?

What is the name of the island that England is on?

Barefooty just needs something to cry about. His mommy won't change his diapers when he poops himself on Topix so that's all he can do.
I doubt he'll convince any Irishman of that.

After all, the Brits spent 800 years trying to do that, with considerably more resources.

It's almost sad, seeing someone so desperate for attention, and so incapable of admitting error in even the smallest matter.

Has Ireland been moved?
Because the last I *looked* it was west of England.
I just read back, and that was never a point of contention.

Nice try at shifting the argument, though.

If he put it as third rate, he was being kind.

I wonder Bharat would be now if the UK hadn't installed itself as ruler of the brown people of that continent?

Been part of Ireland for a few million years.
And is not part of Britain.
No matter how hard you stomp your feet.
You said "UK", also.

You mean like you refusing to admit most of the people living in Northern Ireland are Irish?

Correct (as I would expect of you). When we rebranded our failing Olympic team a decade ago, it became "Team UK". Some NI athletes are concerned they are not represented by that name.
