You have accused me of being an Anglophobe. My dislike of Ulster Unionism isn't caused by Anglophobia. I have never blamed the British state for Protestant sectarianism in Northern Ireland, because the British state no longer oppresses Ulster Catholics. 
I have never claimed that the entire forum is Germanophobic or Russophobic. Matthew J Taylor is the only member of this forum, whom I have accused of being a Germanophobe, and DavidV is the only member of this forum, whom I have accused of being a Russophobe. I have accused Matthew J Taylor of being a Germanophobe, because he has claimed that the German reunification ought to have been prevented, and I have accused DavidV of being a Russophobe, because of his excessive hostility to the Putin regime. I have never accused you of being a Germanophobe, a Russophobe or an anti-Zionist.

'I am sick and tired of monarchists being ...' is a standard post opening for you. There is never any evidence adduced that monarchists generally are whatever it is you accuse them of being. If you keep going around flinging paint at the wall, you have no grounds to complain if some gets thrown your way now and again.

I will try to limit my use of this post opening in the future.

For the last time, I'm not Germanophobic and in my ideal world, there would be a united Germany under the King of Prussia.
I simply have some sympathy for Thatcher's fears that a united Germany, when combined with European integration, would swamp our the smaller European states and lead to the very Teutonic hegemony that the UK has consistently fought to prevent.

The future King William V will also have King Charles II as an ancestor , he will be descended from every Monarch who left descendants except King William IV.

You won't find many Scots who support the idea of a republic. The only party in the Scottish Parliament who support a republic are the Greens, and they don't stand much chance of getting into power. The ordinary man in the street, even those who don't have much time for the Windsors, aren't too keen on the idea of a republic.

Actually, it was. The Scottish Parliament banned the practice of the Catholic Faith in 1560, despite the fact that, although the country was officially Presbyterian, the majority of the populace remained Catholic.

I don't want Scotland to become a republic. I want Queen Elizabeth to be the Queen of Scots, if Scotland secedes from the UK, because she is a descendant of King James VI.

To Tui, the practice of the Catholic faith was banned in England also. However, as long as observance was kept private and discreet it was generally tolerated here, and this was true in Scotland as well. But in neither country was it illegal simply to be a Catholic, as demonstrated by the fact that not one single Catholic, whether in England or Scotland, was ever burned or otherwise executed for heresy. And that was my original point to Azadi.
