Once again my manchild friend is running with a strawman.<quoted text>
Far be it for me to judge, of course the UK is a monarchy, SuperFAG's (et al.) refusal to acknowledge this is a reflection of his massive ego which is unable to concede that he is wrong, even after proved so.
Though I have to say it's hard for me to understand how an entire country would tolerate the institution, i.e., forking out billions of dollars to keep the queen and her family in bobbles.
Nobody, despite your continual spin, denies that Britain has a monarchy. Or that it has "powers". Or that the monarch is our head of state.
The point of contention, oh dishonest one, is your claim that as a result Britain does not qualify as a democracy.
It is no different whatsoever to arguing that the United States is a republic and only a republic. The only difference is your immensely hypocritical standards.
