On this day in 1957 Sir Anthony Eden resigned as prime minister of Britain due to ill health, after just one year and 279 days in the post. He was succeeded by Harold Macmillan.

Eden resigned on 9 January 1957, after his doctors warned him his life was at stake if he continued in office. Although the media expected Butler would get the nod, a survey of the Cabinet done for the Queen showed Macmillan was the nearly unanimous choice, and he became Prime Minister on 10 January 1957. Shortly afterwards Eden and his wife left England for a holiday in New Zealand.

Eden retained much of his personal popularity in Britain, was created Earl of Avon in 1961, and entered the House of Lords. In retirement Eden was particularly bitter that during the Suez Crisis Eisenhower had initially indicated British and French troops should be allowed to remain around Port Said, only for the US ambassador Henry Cabot Lodge, Jr. to press for an immediate withdrawal at the UN, thereby rendering the operation a complete failure. Eden felt the Eisenhower administration's unexpected opposition was hypocritical in light of the 1953 Iranian coup d'état and the 1954 Guatemalan coup d'état.

You mean, let's keep looking at a red herring that you are deliberately pretending was a bet.

That means we must look at the bet we made about your Facebook link being the Encyclopedia Britannica. You lost. Pay up, manchild.

Nor has the original question that you have still never answered.

Why? Because you used Wikipedia like a hypocrite.

You lost the bet, manchild. You wagered that your Facebook link was the Encyclopedia Britannica. I proved you wrong.

Pay up.

Dear Mr Cooper,

I am just wondering if the British History page that you are an admin of is affiliated with or part of Encyclopedia Britannica?

Best wishes,

Translation: you lost the bet.

Pay up manchild, then perhaps explain to me why Constitutional monarchies are not a "kind of" monarchy even when you say the others are, then explain how democracy is defined, then explain why the Weimar Republic was not a democracy, then, just maybe, say where you got that quote from even though it is evident you got it from Wikipedia and contradicted yourself.

Above all that, remember to pay up for the bet you lost.

Quote: You stupid moron: the "facebook" source is the Encyclopedia Britannica.

Speaking of sources, you lost the bet that the Facebook source is the Encyclopedia Britannica. Are you ready to pay up yet? Are you ready to stop playing red herrings and answer what was actually asked? Are you ready to concede that Britain is a typical Western democracy and that your argument has been reduced to nothing?

Look where I have got you: to a red herring-turned strawman. To anyone with a mental age higher than six, that would be embarrassing.

You were asked to name the source you got the Macmillan quote from. You jumped on a red herring to avoid answering the question, claiming it was a bet, then refuse to play by your own book when one of your own statement - the claim that your Facebook link is the Encyclopedia - is demonstrated to be wrong.

True or false? To claim false means pretending that the last two weeks or more of pages do not exist and that dialogue never happened.

COUGH.

What was required of me: show ONE other source. I showed four sources and gave ou the links.

Now why don't you tell us you made a semantic error like the time before this, or when you insisted I never posted any sources

WAHHHHHHHHHHH1

What pusses the entire population of Britain is.

No wonder Scotland and Cornwall are pursuing their own independence.

Bet they don't opt to be a monarchy... like England.

What was required was to name the source you got the quote from. Because you cannot, because you got it from Wikipedia, you latched onto a red herring and turned it into a strawman.

Facts are facts, manchild. Unless you are claiming the past few pages of this thread do not exist.

When trying to make insults about nationality it is a good idea to check first.

Or, you can be an adult and attack the arguments instead of strawmen and people.

Pay up, manchild, then perhaps address what was actually asked instead of beating this red herring-turned-strawman to death.
