So do many other interest and identity groups. Complaint is our political lingua franca: it's what Occupiers, Tea Partiers, Wall Street titans, religious and irreligious people share.

Team UK football failed because they were UK footballers. Other sports would have a better team ethos.

Okay, the football experiment at the Olympics failed, I agree.
But in rugby, the B&I Lions are a team as old as Cretaceous fossils - they have been around since forever. So where a UK football team failed, as a rugby team, they are indeed a powerhouse of world rugby. A Lions' tour is arguably surpassed only in stature by the RWC. I for one would love to see the B&I Lions vs the Boks at the Olympics!

What do you get out of calling people names continuously? What changes in your feelings when you do so? Is that the only way you can feel good about yourself? I'd really like to know.

You mean act like a manchild. Barefoot has got to be the most socially inept person I have seen on this forum; even creationists, adamant that their literal beliefs are real, are not as childish or hated as this guy.
So much hate, so little else.
I think when someone shows that much hatred for others, it shows that they actually hate themselves even more. When he has to be right no matter what, it only shows his own insecurities about his own opinions. But that's his problem, not mine.

Of course, the annoying part of it is he is right and you wrong and unable to deal with it, otherwise you wouldn't be responding every single day.

Let me know when you pass the "what is a loaded question" test.
That depends on whose definition we are playing by. If you mean a conventional term for loaded question, then I have passed with flying colours. If you mean the "Barefoot loaded question test", then inevitably I am going to fail.

You cannot debate, and that is why you hide behind a flawed question. You know just as much as everyone else here that Britain is an average western democratic country.

Those that speak English.

The people who understand when I say the UK is a monarchy, they nod.

For example.

And when I say the Ireland is an island and to the west of England, they get annoyed because everyone knows that that is rather obvious.

Rather than rolling around on the floor kicking and crying and screaming Wales is to the west of England and that an explanation is needed for saying the UK is a monarchy.

Those who speak English, SuperFag.

Maybe you can have Packy help?

That is why I am able to say without reservation: Yes, the UK is a monarchy and why after a month you cannot admit that you are wrong.

PS: still west of England.

Great Britain: An island off the western coast of Europe comprising England, Scotland, and Wales. It is separated from the mainland by the English Channel and from Ireland by the Irish Sea.

I know exactly what he said, Packy, just as I know exactly what you have said, and exactly what I say and have said.

The difference between you and me, Packy, and me and your NotBot friends is: I am able to QUOTE *exactly* and not have to insist on paraphrase what anyone meant to have said.

Ireland is west of England, yes or no, Packy.

Yes?

So what?

Does the sun still rise in the east?

As I recall, I said that Ireland was west of England.

Do you need to look that up?

Is Northern Ireland part of Ireland?

You better check a map, HOney.

Here's one:
