Guest, did I say anyone was being racist or anti-British? Absolutely not - I'm very well aware that 'racist' is one of the most misunderstood and incorrectly-used word in the English dictionary.

And Martin claimed equivalency between the US President and our Queen - he, and you, are wrong, she does not have the powers that a President of the US has, in fact nowadays she does not even have the power of veto over Acts of Parliament. Her position is merely one of 'advisor' to the government which, in practical terms, means she has no power at all. She's a rubber stamp on the papers the government put before her.

The US constitution provides for an individual with Presidential powers, the UK constitution does not.
