Nice try at an anthem dance ersi. Calling a tune from before 1917 is not the same as the national anthem situ you came up with and I did state the fact.

As for that utter nonsense about Putin is kind of typical from a Yankee quarter. You lot think you have some given principled right to police the world. You also lead in the support for real dictatorships like Saudi Arabia but then that is okay as they scucummb to your corporate mind controllers. For a country lie yours and the shameful record it has including internbally you have a nerve accusing some other place of being terrible. It does not matter a two penny damn who runs America the infringements of rights over a dozen spy agencies spying on people and their rights under that wonderful constitution boasted about, over two million in jail and over forty million poor it does not make a difference who is in the White house. For all it's internal problems Russia has been moving since the days of the USSR dictatorship whether you like to hear that or not. When you look at that defaming list I gave on US historical hypocrisy it is a nerve trying to bombast modern Russia which is moving in the right way whether mind controlled folk like you want to accept it or not.

You can boast about President Trump going to make a difference but he won't. He has already contradicted all those mouthy statements he made during the election campaign and fine you know it. He is no different from previous Presidents who make challenging claims then once in the White House slowly give into the system. The President of America just before the 1st World War actually complimented the Tsar on the direction the Empire was going in!

No, you didn't state a fact. You are unable distinguish between Stalinist and Czarist stuff. That's a fact.

As for me, I know first hand that they played different stuff under Yeltsin and that Yeltsin moderately promoted Czarist nostalgia, whereas now under Putin they are playing the Soviet anthem again, even though it was the Soviet anthem (given that RSFSR and USSR are different things). You know hardly anything about any thing on this list.

Good, then! Jolly good. May calls for a general election almost three years early, because she fears your "wider" democracy will likely crash and burn if she doesn't get all the sheeple to support her now... (Actually, all that would happen is that she'd lose her position -- which, at this point. she's willing to risk.) Glad to know you keep up with such things!
BTW: Which direction is Whitehall from Glasgow? :) (Please borrow a sense of humor before answering that question.)

I do not need to borrow humour whatsoever dear ex-colonist. Just a pity having suffered what passes for education over there you aren't able to work it out.  :rolleyes:

This matches well with my view on how colonial powers redraw the map of the world, to their own ultimate self-defeat https://youtu.be/S328nyn8Dc8?t=190

I do try to make allowances for you being a yank who doesn't know much about outside the ex-colonies but bordering on the stupid poor man?? If the Tories have the most MP's it will be her and party and if Labour that nutjob, Corbyn. Two General elections we had a coalition government and something that couldn't happen in corporate controlled America. I will be surprised if Mrs May and her Conservative & Unionist Party does not win the UK General Election (as do most pundits). Our system has a broader political embrace than your semi-democracy and even smaller parties have MP's on Commons Standing Committees.  You lot talk about democracy whereas we have it.

Are you drunk or just waxing in Iberian dopiness? The UK does exist and will continue to be united.

I will be surprised if an new referendum for Scotland to leave the UK isn't put before the voters well before the "recent" 2020 scheduled general election... :)
Are you so sure, after the pain of Brexit begins, that it will fail?

Tell me, RJ: What is the point of your so-called "wider" democracy?

Yes the Royal consort has been a very remarkable man. Amongst his record is the creation of the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme for young people at three levels. As a captain in one of our youth organisations (The Boys' Brigade) I had three 15 and 16 year olds who got the award. It has been taken part in across the globe too.
