A Lord Justice of England in 15th century states that the Sovereign may sometimes be obliged to rule absolutely -

[even for a day].

 

As we have mentioned elsewhere there are times when a Sovereign has to assert an Absolute Rule even for a day.

A continental Monarch refused to sign a BILL on a question of ABORTION because of CONSCIENCE so ABDICATED for that DAY which was permitted in the CONSTITUTION.

WE ASK THE QUESTION

WHY DID NOT

THE QUEEN

on being asked to sell her

PEOPLE and COUNTRY

to a

 FOREIGN POWER

not say to her

PRIME MINISTER.

If you wish me to sign the

EU TREATY

you must at first

GIVE MY PEOPLE THEIR PROMISED REFERENDUM?

There is , however in the De Natura a passage  not found in the later works, in which the

LORD CHIEF JUSTICE of ENGLAND

in which Fortescue admits that even a politic or constitutional king may sometimes be obliged to rule absolutely (regaliter)

[EVEN for an HOUR or a DAY and the loyal subjects of

QUEEN ELIZABETH THE SECOND

of

ENGLAND

expected this to happen when their accustomed

'RIGHTS and LIBERTIES of ENGLISHMEN'

and 

COUNTRY

were threatened with

EXTINCTION

But the pleas of the people and a petition of

1,000,000

signatures of her people were ignored,

WHY?

It has been stated that Parliament is the strength of the British Constitution

The cardinal principle of the English Constitution is admirably stated by Sir John Fortescue, Chief Justice of the Kings Bench under Henry VI in words of splendid dignity and living force:-

[Each underlined word has a separate bulletin]

" A King of England," he says "cannot at his pleasure make any alterations in the laws of the land, for the nature of his government is not only regal but political.  He can neither make any alteration or change in the laws of the realm without the consent of his subjects, nor burthen them against their wills with strange impositions; so that a people governed by such laws as are made by their own consent and approbation, enjoy their properties securely and without hazard of being deprived of them by the King or any other."

Our " Rights and Liberties" are as sacred -some will say more sacred than property, because without those safeguards to our Liberties we are but slaves and not

TRUE ENGLISHMAN

At another time when our shores were threatened by a European power at the time of the Armada our illustrious Queen Elizabeth II at Tilbury

'Elizabeth did not fear. She had no regular army , and scarcely any regular navy, but she called on

EVERY ENGLISHMAN

who could bear arms to come forward to defend his native Land.

Scarcely a man refused.

The Catholics were as forward as the Protestants

 

Elizabeth reviewed her troops at Tilbury.

'My loving people,' she said, we have been persuaded by some that are careful of our safety to take head how we commit ourselves to armed multitudes, for fear of treachery; but I assure you I do not desire to live to distrust my faithful and loving people

LET TYRANTS FEAR!

I have always so behaved myself that , under God, I have placed my chiefest strength and safeguard in the loyal hearts and good will of my subjects; and therefore am I come amongst you, as you see,

AT THIS TIME

-to lay down my life for my God

AND FOR MY KINGDOM

and for

MY PEOPLE

MY HONOUR

and

MY BLOOD

even in the dust.

I know I have the body but of a weak and feeble women;

BUT I HAVE A HEART OF A KING

and of a

KING of ENGLAND

too, and I think foul scorn that Parma or Spain,

or any

PRINCE of EUROPE

SHOULD DARE TO INVADE THE BORDERS OF MY REALM.'

WAR in EUROPE

A book of the Shakespearean era by  A L.Rowse

TO THE GLORIOUS MEMORY

of

ELIZABETH I

QUEEN OF ENGLAND

 

In the first page of the

PROLOGUE

we found a parallel with our situation today in June 2008 and the dialogue at the time in 1950 well fitted the situation after the victory in the Second World War

1939-45

'The English people in our time have been through a crisis of their fate to which the nearest parallel is that passed through in the

ELIZABETHAN AGE

Only ours was a nearer thing, and even more depended on it.  The coolest and least impassioned historian must admit that the contribution of the

ENGLISH PEOPLE

in our generation to the

WORLD WAR

was even greater than that of

OUR ANCESTORS;

for it was a more dangerous and exhausting struggle against worse odds and

SO MUCH MORE WAS AT STAKE,

not only

FOR OURSELVES

but

FOR THE WORLD.

 

THIS IS NOT MY THEME.

What is to our purpose is to note how, in the

MOMENT of GREATEST DANGER

when all might easily have been lost and the

COUNTRY GONE DOWN

for ever to

DESTRUCTION,

people turned for inspiration to that earlier hour, and were

RENEWED  AND WENT ON.

IT HAS INDEED NEVER BEEN FORGOTTEN.

.  .  . It must have some secret for

OUR PEOPLE

that cannot be put in words, though it is hopeless business for a historian to try.

Perhaps it was in the electric, charged moment that

OUR PEOPLE

suddenly reached maturity and

BECAME AWARE OF THEMSELVES AS A PEOPLE

first saw themselves in the

MIRROR of DESTINY

half glimpsed the extraordinary fate that lay ahead across the seas and in the world.

There is no doubt about the fact, when

LONDONERS

in the tense hours of

1940

awaiting the issue of the

BATTLE of BRITAIN

thronged to hear

QUEEN ELIZABETH'S

[THE FIRST]

Golden Speech

to the

COMMONS

of

[ENGLAND]

in

1601

recited in

1940

 by our most admired living actress; when the chief box-office draw throughout the

WAR

the one dramatist that never failed to hold the stage of a Warwickshire man who made a successful career in London

over three centuries ; when on the famous morning of

JUNE 6-1944

a company commander, as his landing - craft approached the coast of

NORMANDY

read

Henry V's

speech before

 Agincourt

to his men; when people at home held their breath and felt that not to be there was , in his phrase

not to be there on

CRISPIN'S DAY.

 

 

Henry V

'Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more;

Or close the wall up with our English dead

In peace there's nothing so becomes a man

As modest stillness and humility

But when the blast of war blows in our eyes

Then imitate the action of a tiger;

Stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood

Disguise fair nature with hard-favoured rage.

 

And you , good yeomen

Whose limbs were made in England, show us here

The mettle of your pasture

 

I see you stand like greyhounds in the slips,

Straining upon the start.

the game's afoot:

Follow your spirit; and upon this charge

Cry 'God for Harry!

ENGLAND and ST GEORGE'

 

 

*

IF ONLY?

*

BUT

 

 

... O! that we now had here

But one ten thousand of those men in England

That do no work today.

If we are marked to die, we are enow

To do our country loss; and if to live.

The fewer men the greater share of honour.

 

...We few we happy few, we band of brothers;

For he today that sheds his blood with me

Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile

This day shall gentle his condition:

And gentlemen in England now abed

Shall think themselves accursed they were not here,

And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks

That fought with us upon St Crispin's day.

*

WE have been unable to obtain even ONE SUPPORTER to TAKE FIRM ACTION in DEFENCE of THEIR COUNTRY

and we have seen the result in the

  HIGH TREASON

in

YOUR

HOUSE OF COMMONS

on that day of

INFAMY

on

MARCH 5 -2008

 

 

The people of ENGLAND have been too laid- back and they have NOW paid the PENALTY with the loss of their accustomed liberties for which millions of their ancestors

GAVE THEIR LIVES.

 

TO PROTECT

 

On June 6-1944

our troops with their allies left our safe shores for Normandy to set free France and Europe.

On the morning of

D.Day    

Field Marshall Montgomery

gave his Message to the troops.

In 1963 he made a public statement

'I say we must not join Europe'

[MARCH 6-2008 and again in JUNE-2008]

We continue the Benedict Brogan article:

His words [Nicolas Sarkozy] will be seized on by British critics who accuse the Prime Minister of failing to kill the deal off.

EU rules say if only one of the 27 member states rejects the treaty-

IT DIES.

Britain could have left the treaty's future in question by declaring that the Irish 'NO' meant  the ratification process

SHOULD STOP

Instead, Mr Brown forced the TREATY through the Lords and secured Royal Assent yesterday hours before visiting Mr Sarkozy on his way to Brussels.

[Well! Gordon Brown had many more pressing matters on his mind and considered at least it will distract the Press for just a moment from the vast number of problems - many of which were of his own making-not taking heed of advice from close at hand. To involve Her Majesty The Queen in the matter of ratification after knowing that the TREATY was DEAD was a dishonourable decision by a Prime Minister who only pushed the issue in order to look good to his many friends in the EU COMMISSION.]

France, which takes the six-month PRESIDENCY of the EU on July 1, is desperate to solve the crisis while it is in charge and push hard to close a deal in October-2008.

The preferred option is to offer Ireland face-saving compromises, such as guaranteed seat on the EU COMMISSION

[Well! we all know what useless phrases are used to elicit co-operation such as 'Red Lines' and we  all know by now that any guarantee is as useless as the guarantee that Hitler gave to Neville Chamberlain in 1938 with his 'Peace in our Time' piece of paper. And all such so called guarantees are as litter -Rubbish!]

Sources close to Mr Sarkozy said:

'The Irish are deeply rooted in Europe. They have also profited from the European  jackpot and want to protect their winnings.

WE ARE READY TO GIVE GUARANTEES

But the Irish Government has said another

REFERENDUM

IS NOT AN OPTION.

[Well! obviously Gordon Brown does not think this is so.]

There are fears that France could demand the

EU GO AHEAD

with

LISBON without IRELAND

which would be seen as tantamount to ejecting Ireland.

Europe Minister Jim Murphy denied the treaty had been killed off and said it was

'a matter for the Irish Government and People to decide the way forward'.

*

THE FUTURE FOR A DEMOCRATIC AND ACCOUNTABLE  EU DEPENDS ON IRELAND STANDING FIRM ON ITS DEMANDS WHICH ARE ALSO THE DEMANDS OF HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF EUROPEANS

WHO HAVE BEEN REFUSED A VOTE

IRELAND

 CAN DO IT FOR

THEM!
