As for the UK being classed among Western Democracies, I was not aware. When we speak of western democracy on the forum, it is usually dealing with American democracy so I naturally assumed.
Gee, it's true what they say about American's knowledge of geography and foreign affairs then !!
Do you your maps have "Yourop" and "here be dragons" on them or the UK labelled as a quaint village with a "Queen Theme Park" attraction?
1. We are not in the middle East or far East, we are in the WEST. Actually, we are where everything is measured from. Have you heard of a place called Greenwich?
2. We have had elections for some time now and thus qualify as a democracy and not a dictatorship or communist collective.
