Does "there are one hundred pennies in a dollar, yes or no?" imply anything?

As we both know: The United KING_dom is a monarchy,

I know what a loaded question is. I also know that when dishonest people are cornered they will resort to dishonest measures to justify dishonest claims.
Your question implies that our monarchy is above the status of relic. It is not. Our Queen's duty is to wave, smile and visit hospitals while all the political decisions are made by democratically-elected MPS at the Commons.
If my stance was as outdated and trivial as yours, then I would frankly save face rather than resort to loaded questions and ad homs to defend it.

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...
As I have repeatedly told you we don’t get to vote for the queen – monarchy – remember you are always shouting this fact, it’s one of the few things you actually get correct about the UK. The queen holds the position she holds because her forefathers were the bigger murdering bastards than the opposition. Over the centuries we’ve tried alternatives and returned to the status quo.

I have explained several times how the PM gets to be voted PM. But in your typical pedantic, foot stomping, mucus dribbling way you have ignored that because it does not fit in with your wet dreams, c'est la vie

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.
Dream on. You may deceive yourself with racism and BS but that’s your problem. Facts do not change because you have wet dreams.

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.

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.
I wouldn’t know drippydick, you are the one who seems to know what a drippydick tastes like. Tell me how many Michelin star restaurants does the US have per capita?

So now you are saying that you have been to Britain, how contrary you are. You are male, you are female, you are male, you have been to the UK, you have never been to the UK, you have been to the UK. I suppose this is your JW training in being caught out in obvious lies and deceit

And of course this explains where the outbreak of the American decease came from. Thank you for being so honest for once.

Jealousy will get you nowhere, you will never manage a stable relationship because you simply do not have the personality to compromise with one you love. You don’t have the personality for much really so it’s understandable.

I know you have spent a lot of time on the government paid for couch, and you think that makes you an expert on relationships but you don't have a clue.

And you really don't have enough time to continue to post on stuff you don't have a clue on- why not stick to say ten or a dozen things? e.g., the UK government and history and the English language?

If you were arguing that Britain is a monarchy only in title then there would be no issue. But that is not what you are arguing. You are directly claiming that our monarchy is our system of government, and thus, you are frankly wrong.

You know this, we know this, and that is why you refuse to let go of your loaded question.

THE MONARCHY AND THE CONSTITUTION

By Alistair McConnachie and first published in a Sovereignty Special Report distributed free with the May 2002 issue.

Princess Elizabeth came to the throne on 6 February 1952 following the death of her father, George VI.

Her coronation took place in Westminster Abbey on 2 June 1953.

The British monarchy is the oldest and most fascinating monarchy on earth. It is almost impossible to consider British history without acknowledging the centrality of its monarchy, and it is almost impossible to imagine Britain without a monarchy.

In these articles we examine how the sovereign People, and the sovereign Queen, relate together within the sovereign Community of the Realm.

THE BRITISH CONSTITUTION
There are three areas of government -- the legislature, that is the law-making power, the executive, that is the law-enforcing power, and the judiciary, which determines the law.

For centuries the monarch exercised supreme executive, legislative and judicial power in person.

The struggle between Crown and Parliament in the seventeenth century led in 1688-89 to the establishment of a limited constitutional monarchy.

With the establishment of the Party system by the end of the nineteenth century, the monarch's direct role in politics became minimal.

Today, the two major roles of the Queen are as the Head of State and as a National Icon.

As Head of State the Queen does not owe her position to either patronage or a vote, and can more properly represent all the people in a way in which an elected President cannot.

As a National Icon, with a history stretching back centuries, the Queen is a distinct symbol of national identity. She represents Britain - the nation, its constituent parts, and the people - in a way in which a transitory politician can never do. In this role, she also provides a focused and tangible symbol of the people's sovereignty.

These are important roles, and in both of them she has political power - of a sort - but it is not the sort of power which by itself, could for example, take Britain out the EU.

Under our present system, the legislature is Parliament, namely, the House of Commons and the House of Lords. The executive is the Queen, the Prime Minister and the Cabinet.

There is some connection between the three branches of government. For example, the Cabinet links the legislature with the executive, through its members. The Lord Chancellor, who is a Cabinet member, links the judiciary and the executive, and the Lords of Appeal - "the Law Lords" - sitting in the House of Lords, link the legislature and the judiciary.

"The Crown" is the symbol, and name, of the supreme governing authority. The Queen is the person of the Crown.

The governing functions of the Crown are exercised by ministers responsible to Parliament, in the name of the Queen. Hence the term, "Her Majesty's Government".

Bills go through the House of Commons, and the House of Lords and when they have been passed by both Houses, the Queen gives her "Royal Assent" to them.

Make sure you continue to post this so when Odoriferous Skanque insists no one here is denying the United KING_dom is a monarchy I shan't have to have her look one page or another in either direction.
