I didn't mention training wheels either... there isn't any debate here in the first place, this is what you fail to grasp. The topic is about gaining a better understanding of the multi-party electorate in the UK and what its benefits may or not be. Once this has been grasped, it is hoped to make a comparison to the US two party system to try to make a comparison between the two.

>for a pat on the back?
No, I'm not here for debate. I'm here for understanding. Big difference. There are many people (yourself included obviously) who believe everything has to be a debate instead of shutting the fuck up and trying to learn something from other people from time to time. You can't listen when your mouth is open.

??? how in the hell did we get here? You obviously have an agenda and are trying to turn a learning opportunity into a Bush/Blair bashing exercise. I can't stand Bush just as much as the next okplayer, but there is a time and a place for everything and I don't see the point of bringing my displeasure for our current president into every single topic.

Since we currently don't have any other 'choices', I can not hypothetically assert how these hypothetical people and their hypothetical views would be better for blacks. It would obviously be foolish of me.

So, I yearn to understand what the effects of a multi-party system has on a country other than ours to see how this may / may not affect the political strata in the US.
