Have you followed this thread at all? Going back to the comments made by some here that the US made no or little contributions in either war?
Directed at person like me who has direct lineage (immediate family members) who have died fighting your wars? Buried in France? From both wars?
Why would you think I would be offended?

Your ignorance of the UK political system is hilarious
Show us.

I've asked you a few dozen times when you voted for the PM.

I say the PM is appointed.

One of us is right.

But first: show us all where I said the US Navy captured the first enigma machine.

The prime minister is elected, and then rubber stamped by the queen, its a traditional ceremonial, the queen has no choice, she approves whoever the people elect, that is her job, a rubber stamper
So you are saying the queen is a rubber maid?

I think this thread has lost all serious discussion a long time ago. But it's fun to watch people just goof off.

Are you saying that the conventional, or your own, definition for "loaded question" is in French?

The people who understand when I say the UK is a monarchy, they nod.
For example.
Only that you are not just arguing that Britain is a monarchy. You are arguing that it is our actual, functioning, practical system of government.

Completely different claim.

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.
I do not care about your hang-up with Ireland.

Those who speak English, SuperFag.
Maybe you can have Packy help?
Every poster here speaks English, but nobody ever seems to agree with the arguments you make.

Nobody disputes that Britain -has- a monarchy or that the Queen is our head of state. What I, and everybody else is disputing, is that she is relevant in our politics considering she does nothing of serious note.

But, you know this, and this is why you refuse to argue below the surface of your question.

Now you can look up "straw man".

But first... learn what a loaded question means...

I'm not the one who is confused.

I'm the one who asserted that Ireland was west of England.

This is what we English speakers call a "bald-faced lie".

Putting aside I don't care a wit whether or not you agree with what I say.

Starting with my assertion that the United KING_dom is a monarchy...

PS: I offer you (again) a chance to move me out of this thread.

I find someone who agrees with something I posted and you leave this thread.

If he does, I suspect it's in the yard.

Or perhaps the park.
