    [–] CMV: Strange women lying in ponds distributing swords has proved a viable basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power across the British Commonwealth has derived from an aquatic ceremony, not from some farcical ‘Mandate from the Masses’ naturalheightgainer 0 points ago in changemyview

    He was in truth a usurper who pretended at his Divine Right while Real Daddy was across the Channel. If you enjoy the benefit of alliance with one ruling King to whom you promise the Crown but at the end of it all purport to make that over to some other Earl(eww!), then ya get what ya got: Harold killed with an arrow through the eye in midst of battle on his home turf.

    ok ready now.

    Old woman, need I remind you that only ONE successful example suffices to demonstrate base viability?

    Every other country on Earth has been just as successful I detect you arguing. Really? If we date Arthur back the the Battle of Badon exactly 1500 years ago, we are looking at a world dominated by Byzantine Empire, Ostrogoths, Visigoths, Vandals, Celtic tribes and Huns. None of those other peoples are recognisable now, but yet we have Welsh and Scots and Irish and Anglo-Saxon British kicking balls around this Sunday in their own soccer leagues. I'd say that's a fairly slamdunk indicator of the system's viability over a period of time that's weathered everything from the The Black Death In Europe to New Wave Punk Rock.

    We have seen systems collapse: Soviet Communism, Fascism, Napoleonism, theocratic rule in Tibet. But not this one, and there is the enduring credit that when Hitler was at his worst one nation faced him alone. And which was that?: the one descended from the sacred Anointee of that bigtitted damp submersible femme clothed in the purest shimmering samite all those years ago.

    Oh and "Britain's success has to do with leaders who did not have a wet sword lobbed at them". Well, yes. But you neglect to come to terms with that down to today all executive authority (Prime Ministers, 'Ministers of the Crown', Crown Officers, lesser officials) comes from appointment to serve AT THE PLEASURE OF THE MONARCH. And so do we or don't we have a monarch whose identity as a person dependently comes from a decision of a pale hussy of obscure origins standing in a puddle more than 60 generations ago? I'm sayin' yes.

    Is this supposed to change my view? That 'nonsense' happened, but bottom line we have wrested Jerusalem from the filthy Saracens albeit it took more than one Crusade and multiple generations. The men who first did so were conscripted as knights fees to their Lord, and some volunteered out of fealty to their King and Saviour: scutage and all that. Hardly a lack of achievement that indicts the entire aquatic scenario. No delta.

    Old woman peasant, I am of patriotically British descent and as such of course DO at least conditionally hold this wise, admittedly right wing traditionalist, view.

    I mean when has it all ended up badly? And before you make that response, consider what language it is we’re actually conversing in right now
