Poor Meatball: never the quote around he needs; he insists rather on the paraphrase.

I said A ***MONARCHY***(yes or no), dear child, is a two-sided coin.

Thanks for the continual denial.
That is all you could muster as a response?

Face it, Britain is a typical democracy like any other western country and for reasons known only to you, you don't like that.

Get over it, manchild. When the Queen starts making laws, like monarchies are supposed to do, we'll talk about Britain being a monarchy. Until then, dance some more for me.

Call your local university.
Speak to the Political Science department.
Ask one of the professors if the UK is a democracy.
I know what his/her answer will be, and it isn't the one you've been giving.
He has been unknowingly. Two degrees in politics right here, from an accredited British university, but what do I (and the literature read in the process) know when a manchild internet troll knows more about everything than anybody else?

Note to manchild: that is a rhetorical question.

But according to you Britain is not a Constitutional monarchy because we do not have a Constitution. Thus either your source is wrong, or you are wrong.

Which is it?
