boy - George, if not William

girl - Elizabeth, most likely. I wouldn't count out Diana, though. Were a baby girl to inherit the throne, however, she would likely change her name.

Hello, fellow Atlasians:

I have been on the forum for over a year (since February of 2011). I tend not to post as much (or as controversial, for that matter Tongue) because I'm afraid that it might be used against me in the future. (Hey, you never know) I have started (and failed to complete) two timelines, ran for president as Jeb Bush, and had some fun tweeking Politico.

I would like to thank you all for making Atlas a great forum to be a member of . I have been described as many things - from Ronald Reagan in Jimmy Carter's body (thanks Sanchez Tongue) to Freedom Fighter (maybe one of the few to be elected that unanimously). Maybe I need to make more offensive posts to get a few HP votes.

Anyway, Thanks again for accepting me in this great world of political dialogue. My only hope is to get Thande on here sometime in the future (AH.com members will know whom I am talking about).

Take care, and God bless,

MasterSanders

Between the disgusting Rotherham scandal, the PM's remarks, the Tory-UKIP alliance memo, and now 8 prospective parliamentary defectors, I would say Nigel has had a very good week.

Harper awarded the other Justin (Bieber) a Jubilee Medal for "achievements abroad that bring credit to Canada." LOL. Tongue

What was worse was that JB was in overalls.

Quote from: Young Independence Facebook Status
Nigel Farage has announced there will be no pact with the Tories.

This after they had posted a Tory memo calling for a Tory-UKIP pact.

I've been on the boards for over a year, and no one has asked if I were an FF or HP. Sad
It took me four years to get one, IIRC/am using the search function correctly. Tongue When you're less controversial, then it's sort of at the whim of the poll makers, who are just a handful. It's usually a good thing to not have an early one, that probably isn't a good indication (speaking only generally).

Maybe I need make a few troll posts. Tongue

23  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: opinion of New antisemitism on: November 20, 2012, 10:55:08 am
There is a new antisemitism that has developed in response to the Arab-Israeli conflict.  It does often hide behind anti-Zionism, however it is not the same, and legitimate criticism of Israel should not be confused with this.
