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.

Yes and PMs resign,
Prime ministers are not elected in the UK.

I don't care if they take baths or not- I am sure they are infrequent- but whether or not PM resign or die in office: who cares.

When they are replaced, they are replaced, each and every one of them, by appointment.

And I have as much say on who will be the next PM as you.

Actually, I was the one who showed you, bigot, I show you how it works and so far, bigot, you have not been able to refute a SINGLE thing I have said.

Now bigot: the prime minister in UK is APPOINTED.

By the monarch.

Just as I have stated many dozen times.

NO matter how hard you stomp your bigoted feet.

And the prime minister is not always elected by his party.

As I have already proved.

Wipe your chin, Skanque.

Sweden: Cost of royal wedding triggers monarchy debate

By Malin Rising, Associated Press Writer

STOCKHOLM — It will be a royal moment of glory set against the bleak backdrop of Europe's financial crisis.

The June 19 wedding in Stockholm Cathedral between Crown Princess Victoria and her personal trainer Daniel Westling has triggered debate about why an otherwise egalitarian country like Sweden retains such an archaic — and expensive — institution.

Like in neighboring monarchies Norway and Denmark, the Swedish royals' responsibilities are purely ceremonial, but they still enjoy privileged lives compared to ordinary people, a disparity that has become increasingly evident during preparations for the wedding.

Many here are questioning the 20 million kronor ($2.5 million) price tag of the wedding — half of which will be borne by taxpayers — at a time when ordinary citizens are being asked to endure a new age of austerity.

Other than the fact that I have listed the degrees by name and provided the link to back them up.

Put up.
Politics and International Relations at Aberdeen is unique in Scotland in bringing together these two cognate, but distinct, subjects as equal components. Teaching and research are both enhanced by this framework and many students feel there is a great benefit in being able to study the two side-by-side.
Why Aberdeen?
Politics and International Relations at Aberdeen continues to excel in the annual National Student Survey
The Department brings active research culture into its teaching, helping to take students to the forefront of contemporary debates and knowledge in the field
Areas of special expertise include Interest Groups, Public Policy, Comparative Political Parties and Elections, European Integration and Regionalism, Security Studies, Cross National Surveys, Scottish Politics, Regional IR, Modernity and Religion, Human Rights and Development Issues, Political Communication, Democracy and Democratisation and European Politics
The Department encourages students to spend their second year of study abroad. The University offers support centrally for taking a year abroad in Europe, Japan, Hong Kong or North America

http://www.abdn.ac.uk/courses/undergraduate/a...

PROGRAMME LENGTH
MRes 12 months full-time
Aims
The Masters in Political Research seeks to provide students with comprehensive, advanced-level methodological training in Politics and International Relations. It has a dual remit, equipping students with transferable skills for graduate employment, while also laying the foundations for research leading to a doctorate. The programme gives participants the knowledge, understanding and competence to deploy qualitative and quantitative methods of data collection and analysis in the conduct of theoretically informed research in Politics and International Relations. Students are required to present research results in the form of oral and written reports. A dissertation permits students to develop skills in an area of particular interest to them. The MRes programme is tailored to provide the methodological training and critical capacity for advanced research in Politics or IR.

Thank you ever so much for posting links to two universities that give out Politics degrees.

I recommend going to a doctor to address the gun-shot wounds in your feet.

Asked and received. You can now apologise for being wrong about universities not giving out Politics degrees.

Also, you STILL cannot admit that Britain is a Constitutional monarchy. Why is that if you so adamantly claimed that you have never claimed Britain is not one?

When people make claims, they are required to back them up.

You claimed that your Macmillan quote came from a non-Wikipedia source.

You have failed to back up this assertion.

Conclusion: you are lying.

Prove me wrong: be an adult and back up your claim.

Translation: Barefoot still cannot admit that he is flat out wrong about Britain not being a democracy, even when reputable sources state as such.

Nobody, not even your own sources, deny that Britain is not a democracy. Only you, in Fantasyland, where you are supreme expert on everything man has ever conceived, think that because Britain has a monarch then it is therefore not a democracy. Barefoot against the world.

Just like you think that because Einstein was a male, he was not German, not a scientist, not a genius.

In Barefootland, things can only be defined by one word. One, single, lonely, word.

Another lie. I have never denied that Britain has a monarchy, I state that Britain is a Parliamentary democracy with a figurehead monarch at the top.
