  •  The UK a theocracy? (0+ / 0-)

    humorist.

    The UK is a democracy, with a constitutional monarchy.  The Queen reigns, and does not rule.  Decisions are made by the government etc.

    Similarly in Denmark,  Norway, etc.

    You think she rules ie RUNS the country?  And does so for God?

    Even for you, honeypetal, that is a bad joke.

    Wanna see a theocracy?  Look at Iran.

    •  "Technically" (0+ / 0-)

      Just like "Technically," Iran is a Democracy.

      Iran functions as a theocracy. The UK functions as a Democracy.

      We're talking about technicality, rather than the de-facto situation.

      An Fhirinn an aghaidh an t'Saoghail. (The truth against the world.) Is treasa tuath na tighearna. (The common people are mightier than the lords.)
