In America, atheists are still in the closet

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.

Follow the thread, Skanque.

I'm not the one who insists the United Kingdom is NOT a monarchy.

I'm not the one who thinks all yes or no questions are loaded questions.

PS: I have always know the answer to this question: Yes or no, is the United King_dom a monarchy. I haven't budged a fraction of an inch.

[QUOTE who="ChristineM"
No, not one word and I am not interested in your response or your silly imaginings, it is of little use and made my one of limited intellect and no comprehension of the British political system.
[/QUOTE]

You mean the way I insist the prime minister of the United KING_dom is appointed by the monarch because in actual fact the prime minister of the United KING_dom is appointed by the monarch?

Yes or no?

Because I would like to make sure you understand I am the one who is saying the prime minister of the United KING_dom is appointed by the monarch.

And you are saying I don't understand the 'system'.

Yes or no, prime minister of the United KING_dom is appointed by the monarch?

I am sure drippydicks have left a bad taste in your mouth, you seem to remember well. I guess that series of shots made an impression, eh?

The prime minister of the UK isn't elected into that office.

You are not ready for other languages, it isn't hard to understand in English.

Nor am I butt breath

I am not the one who thinks everything is black and white, have you ever seen a grey cloud?

No, nor have I, the fact that its one of the very few questions you pose that we agree on perhaps has something to do with it

How many times do I need to repeat the same answer?

Think grey, not yes or no, a lot of democracy has to be seen to have happened before the queen gives her agreement. That is the part that you are deliberately ignoring because it does niot suite you agenda tough

It is a yes or no question.

Are there one hundred pennies in a dollar, yes or no?

PS: I can't help but notice you fail to contradiction anyone saying that the UK is NOT a monarchy.

Funny how that is.

PS: I have exactly the same say so in the appointment of the UK prime minister as do you.

I read the rule that the Queen appoints the PM.

Do show us all ONE PM who hasn't been appointed by the monarch in the last two hundred years or so.

There is no point even playing with the charade that the Queen has a choice to make. Barefoot knows as much as the rest of us that she is a ceremonial rubber stamper. The Queen has no choice to make and has no intention of even having a choice due to her and the monarchy's respect for the democratic apparatus of our political system.

Did you see the 2011 Census results?

"No religious affiliation" up 83%(6.3m) from 2001, christianity down 4.1m from 2001.

So other religions are losing believers too.

"The number of residents who stated that their religion was Christian in 2011 was fewer than in 2001. The size of this group decreased 13 percentage points to 59 per cent (33.2 million) in 2011 from 72 per cent (37.3 million) in 2001. The size of the group who stated that they had no religious affiliation increased by 10 percentage points from 15 per cent (7.7 million) in 2001 to 25 per cent (14.1 million) in 2011." - www.ons.gov.uk

The Queen has every choice to make. She does not have to appoint the candidate selected by what is often a minority party in the House of Commons, they offer a candidate which she may (or may not) appoint.

The reason you cannot refute this is you are wrong and I am right.

The monarch dors not appoint the prone minister, he is elected by the people and then the queen approves it, the queen has to approve whoever the people elect, she doesn't have a choice, van you give me one instance where the queen refuses to approve the prime minister that the people elected, the queen has absolutely no power in british politics, she is a rubber stamper, if I waa you o woild be more worried about the shocking lack if democracy in USA, where your leader is APPOINTED by the aristocratic elite, and not worry about a real democracy like Britain, you wish you were as free and democratic as britain, but unfortunately you are not, it must be a cultural failing of America, and why so many of the worlds democratic counyries are bases on the British parliamentary system, and not the defunct American system, basically its because ours is better, and we are freer
