THESE ARE dark days for patriots. Our monarch has been effectively deposed by her own hand, the laws of our puppet parliament are the orders of foreign powers and, on Thursday of this week, the prime minister will incriminate himself by giving most of what little sovereignty we have over our own lives to the usurpers of Brussels. When the British people again insist on their laws being obeyed, revenge will be sweet.
So let’s remember then why we fight on. It is not because of any abstract notions or ideas, nor because we have been a free, independent people for a thousand years with a unique way of life shaped by our own customs. We fight on for our very freedom:
– Under our law we can do virtually anything we wish providing there is no law against it. In Europe you can only do what the law says you can.
– In the United Kingdom the state is the servant of the people. In Europe the people are subjects of the state.
– In the United Kingdom we have inalienable common law rights that the state cannot deny us or take away from us. In Europe rights are awarded by the state and can be withdrawn at the state’s discretion.
– In the United Kingdom the people control the state, for the sovereignty rests with the people. In Europe the state controls the people for it is the state which is sovereign.
– In the United Kingdom we do not have a state police force; we have county police forces accountable to the Crown which represents the people. In Europe they have state police forces whose job it is to enforce state policy.
These freedoms are ours by right. They do not belong to the Crown, Parliament or any individual. Our ancestors fought at home and abroad to preserve them. The prime minister will, this week, treat our liberties as his plaything and bargain them away in the promise of an authoritarian state controlling the lives of 400 million slaves. Let his name be added to the list.
