You're not taking into account aliens. I'll not be convinced until we see the blood tests of Galaxian, the Queen of England, and the members of the Illuminati.

UNITED kingdom is a misnomer. As a Scottish person, I'd've expected you to know that. :whistle:

For a start I am not Scottish and never was. It is the United Kingdom.

Elizabeth II, by the Grace of God, of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and of her other realms and territories Queen, Head of the Commonwealth, Defender of the Faith
