GOLDEN PRINCIPLES OF THE BRITISH CONSTITUTION

 

1.    Sovereignty is entrusted to and exercised by the Monarch on behalf of the people, and administered by Parliament which has no lawful authority ever to breach, surrender, lend or transfer (even temporarily) sovereignty unless conquered in war, in defence and maintenance of their laws, customs, rights, liberties.

2.   No one (neither Monarch, nor Prime Minister, nor any prelate, politician, judge or public servant) is above the Statute and Common Law of the United Kingdom that form the British Constitution (including Magna

     Carta [1215 & 1297], Petition of Right [1628] the Declaration and Bill of Rights [1688/89], Acts of Union,

     Succession and Settlement [1701-07], the Coronation Oath Act [1689]).

3.   British Citizens have an inalienable right to be governed justly, lawfully and exclusively by their

Parliament in Westminster (the Crown, the Lords Spiritual and Temporal and freely elected/replaceable representatives in the Commons), all of whom are servants of the people. Parliament’s power is not supreme but conditioned by oaths of office under the Constitution and the people’s immutable franchise.

4.    No Taxation is lawful without representation, nor may taxes be oppressive, unnecessary,

      confiscatory or contain double tax (eg VAT on petrol tax).

5.    Trial by Jury, habeas corpus, right of appeal are inalienable right of all accused under British jurisdiction.

6.   Innocence is presumed unless proved guilty in court. If acquitted, no retrial on same charge.

7.    No fine or forfeiture before court conviction by any official (eg arbitrary speeding and parking fines).

8.    The British Constitution is sworn by solemn oaths of office and/or allegiance to be upheld and defended impartially in perpetuity without exception by the Monarch, ministers, politicians, judges, members of the armed forces, police and others in authority.

9.   The Government must always act within limits and constraints imposed by the Constitution; including the making and repeal of law; it may not diminish or transfer its own power so to act; nor weaken, ignore or over-ride the British Constitution whether to serve its own or others’ ends; it may not suspend or dispense with the law; nor impose harsh or unusual punishment.

10.  Constitutional Law takes precedence over administrative law. It may be improved, or expressly repealed if not entrenched; however it may never be supplanted or repealed just by passing a newer statute or administrative instrument and its breach may be treason.

11.  British Citizens may petition the Monarch if all other remedies fail, without fear of reprisal or prosecution. The Crown is sworn by oath to protect all subjects from violation of their lawful rights and liberties, retaining the power and responsibility to ensure redress is exercised and the law is upheld.

12.  Guaranteed Justice. There must be no undue delay in legal proceedings. Immigrants must adhere to British laws and customs.  If wronged, British Citizens are entitled to a remedy and to seek redress in law. Punishment must fit the crime and must not be excessive or unusual, such as torture. Judgements must be exercised with compassion and mercy at every level.

13.  Right to be defended from our enemies.

14.  Right to defend self, family and property by whatever reasonable means necessary.

15. Right to private ownership of property and assets.

16. Right to engage in any activity not specifically banned in the national interest or safety.

17. Right to associate freely or not to associate with any political party, trade union or

      organisation, except those proscribed as posing a threat to security and interests of the United Kingdom.

18. Right to freedom of speech, writing and publication.

19. Freedom of religion and worship, except that the Protestant Succession shall be maintained.

20. Royal Prerogative is the Sovereign’s alone. It must not be innovatory, offensive or repugnant to the law.

21. Separation of Powers between Crown, Executive and Legislature must be invariably maintained.

22. The Crown shall always retain the absolute right to dissolve and open Parliament; call General

       Elections; refuse Royal Assent to any Bill that does not enjoy the settled will of Parliament, is not in

       the interest of the nation or is unconstitutional; receive and act upon public petitions; declare

       war if unavoidable only in self-defence of the United Kingdom and or our vital interests.

 

OUR BIRTHRIGHT OF GUARANTEED LIBERTY IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE BRITISH CONSTITUTION AND RULE OF LAW IS ABSOLUTE AND ETERNAL
