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.

The belief that sovereignty resides in the hears and minds of the subject of a monarchy is a myth.

In the United KING_dom it resides with the Queen.

The only thing you have right, Skanque, is the title of 'biitch'.

And you wear that crown.

Not quite true but you would not understand the complexities of voting.
I have been waiting for you to explain the complexity of how you get to vote for either the Queen or the PM... since I'm stuck with the fact that you do neither.

Which you are unable to disprove because... you do neither...

Dipping into the sherry again, eh, Skanque?

No, darling, I lead you and Packy through the maze when Packy starting insisting the British captured the U505 even after I corrected him and you only discovered that one model was captured in the U110 and only after I insisted that other models had been captured early a few dozen times that you tried to move the goal posts to cover your error, and now hoping that someone will believe what you meant to say was "working model", putting aside the Brits had captured two complete models plus spare parts months earlier.

You do remember your tirade insisting that fictional movie used creative license and insisted that I was confused by this movie I had never seen let alone would be confused by the fact that sometimes things that happen in fictional moves are... what is the word I am searching for?

oh... yes... fictional.

You are a liar, I absolutely said no such thing.

I said the Americans captured an enigma.

Here (AGAIN) is your big chance and I offered it to you before: You show everyone here that I said Americans captured the first enigma machine and I'll stop posting on this thread.

Make sure you include the link to the actual post because we all know very well you are under the impression that you paraphrasing what you think you remember me saying is the same as a quote.

One two three go!

Wow those biitch slaps really make you scream eh drippydick?
I am sure drippydicks have left a dreadful taste in your mouth, which I am sure everyone understands me when I say means something owing to you being raised on British cuisine, but it means nothing to me. We were warned about English girls before we went on liberty and for the most part, ignored the warnings knowing we could get a shot and it would clear right up.

Dated?

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.

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...
