More people speak "American" English than do "British" English- be that as it may, democracy means the same thing in both as does democratic.
Democracy, Meatball, is a noun.
Democratic is an adjective.
No it isn't, there are more english speakers in both India and China than there is in America, and Indians and Chinese speak British English, as do all the other ex colonies from Africa to Australia, Hong Kong and Singapore to new Zealand and the middle east, they speak British English because thats what they've been taught at school for centuries as British colonies

What you are sure of is irrelevant BS and for sure we are not all dirty morons like you.
AGAIN, for the hard of thinking - Only after being elected TWICE by popular vote first by constituency and then the party members does a person become leader of their party. Even so, if that entire party does not have the majority public vote the leader cannot become PM. If and only if the party (or coalition of parties) has a popular majority of voters will the position of the leader of that party (or coalition) be approved by the queen.
Why do you have such difficulty understanding the concept of democracy?
Presidents, resign, get assassinated or die naturally, who cares? When they die (for whatever reason) or resign there are replaced, each and very one of them by choice of 2nd best.
Yes, true, Unless my local MP decides to run as party leader and then I may respectfully suggest you are talking out you’re a$$

Nope, lets get this straight you ignorant drippydick cuckold, you make claims but you have not accepted the FACTS as presented to you, there is considerable difference between your pedantic ignorance and proof. Your “proof” of and incident that happened more than 50 years ago is irrelevant to today’s governmental structure.

Still no proof but thanks you puss infested drippy dick cuckold

You once again appear to have a total blind spot when it comes to Human Rights – Read the convention you ignorant moron. Unlike the US I believe you will find that the UK is a signatory party. It’s no good ignoring it and hoping it will go away, life is not like that
And in so expressing themselves were proven in LAW to have acted irresponsibly and to have broken the LAW. That my dear little drippydick butt breath cuckold is the whole idea of the LAW, to protect the public.

Did you see that word LAW?
What about the phrase “necessary in a democratic society”?
How about this real humdinger “in the interests of national security”
Please note that in the interest of national security the US has cart blanch over every US citizen no matter what the constitution says. True you are welcome to argue it in court when (if) you have been released from your government dictated waterborarding sessions but hey, so are we.https://www.rienner.com/upl oads/47e148fd47a65.pdf
You seem to be confused by the concept of responsibly – it is perhaps your schizophrenia or OCD or something like that but more than likely just the basic me, me, me attitude that so many Americans are indoctrinated with at school.
Barebutt battyboy has trouble understanding parliamentary democracy, but it is British parliamentary democracy that is by far the biggest democratic governmental system on earth, unlike the American system, the world prefers the real democracy, and that is parliamentary, so it seems that the world much prefers the British system of democracy than the American one, as the British system is used by countless countries all around the world, the American system is not, I wonder why, ours is obviously better, and the world agrees with that

State & Revolution

by

Vladimir Lenin

http://www.marxists.org/archive/lenin/works/1...

Lenin was a believer of the saying "He who does not work, neither shall he eat"

According to Lenin,“He who does not work shall not eat” is a necessary principle under socialism, the preliminary phase of the evolution towards communist society. The phrase appears in his 1917 work, The State and Revolution. Through this slogan Lenin explains that in socialist states only productive individuals could be allowed access to the articles of consumption.

In Lenin’s writing, this was not so much directed at lazy or unproductive workers, but rather the bourgeoisie.(Marxist theory defines the bourgeoisie as the group of those who buy the labor-power of workers and engage it in the process of production, deriving profits from the surplus value thus expropriated. Once communism was realised, that is, after the abolition of property and the law of value, no-one would live off the labor of others.

Neither did the principle apply to those rendered incapable of work by old age or disability. These groups would have a right to society's products because they were not at fault for their condition. The elderly, in particular, had worked during their youth, and so could not be denied life’s basic necessities. The Soviet state accordingly provided a basic level of social security

In reality, the resulting lack of motivation and productivity was illustrated by one of the more famous Russian political jokes, "the authorities pretend they are paying wages, workers pretend they are working."

You are an example of someone who doesn't speak English well at all, Packy.

And as we all know I have slapped the snot out of you every time you pull your head out of your azz and stick it up here.

We have to take your opinion on these matters for what they are worth: what I scrape off my shoe before walking into the house is of more value.

Can things be defined by more than one word? Yes or no?
