This is my late Father.
The picture was taken in 1940 at a Royal Navy training facility in Skegness.
Despite having the opportunity of a ‘reserved occupation’ in a Grantham engineering works, he answered the nation’s call-to-arms and entered service.
For the ensuing five years he helped to defend our liberty in Britain’s fight against fascism. In doing so he saw action in the Indian Ocean, the North Atlantic and the navy’s most arduous of all combat theatres, the Arctic Circle.
A rural Lincolnshire lad, my father was no philosopher. He did, however, instill upon me several sound principles. One of these was:
Never, under any circumstances make a promise unless you are absolutely certain you can keep it.
He used the word ‘promise’. He could equally have used ‘pledge’, ‘vow’ or ‘oath’. So, what is an oath?
According to Wikipedia, an oath is defined as:
Traditionally an oath (from Anglo-Saxon āð, also called plight) is either a statement of fact or a promise with wording relating to something considered sacred as a sign of verity.
An oath then is a sacred promise … a matter never to be taken lightly or without absolute conviction. And, if an oath is broken … ?
Referring to Wikipedia once more, we find that oath-breaking equates to perjury, which it defines as:
Perjury is the intentional act of swearing a false oath or falsifying an affirmation to tell the truth, whether spoken or in writing, concerning matters material to an official proceeding.
The entry goes on to say:
Perjury is considered a serious offense, as it can be used to usurp the power of the courts, resulting in miscarriages of justice.
Before I go on to give three examples of sacred oaths, I’ll illustrate what I consider to be gross miscarriages of justice being perpetrated in England right now.
Police arresting protesters at an anti-lockdown rally
Police breaking-up Christian meetings – London, England
By its actions such as those illustrated above, the police are denying the English people their lawful right to protest peacefully and to worship. Our police officers are thereby enforcing unlawful mandates of the Westminster government.
Let’s now look at the oath taken by every serving police constable in England and Wales.
I do solemnly and sincerely declare and affirm that I will well and truly serve the Queen in the office of constable, with fairness, integrity, diligence and impartiality, upholding fundamental human rights and according equal respect to all people; and that I will, to the best of my power, cause the peace to be kept and preserved and prevent all offences against people and property; and that while I continue to hold the said office I will to the best of my skill and knowledge discharge the duties thereof faithfully according to law.
‘… do solemnly and sincerely declare …’
‘… will well and truly serve the Queen …’
‘… upholding fundamental human rights…’
‘… prevent all offences against people and property …’
Each constable’s warrant card – without which they may not serve as police officers – is issued on the swearing of the above oath. Without the oath, they may not serve. Their adherence to this sacred promise and their right to serve as police constables go hand in glove. If they break their oath, they’re no longer fit to serve.
Now, where in this oath does it mention government?
It doesn’t. Our police are sworn to serve we, the people, not the government.
On the subject of government, what then is the oath taken by every serving Member of Parliament?
I (name of Member) swear by Almighty God that I will be faithful and bear true allegiance to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth, her heirs and successors, according to law. So help me God.
Whilst our police and Members of Parliament have sworn allegiance to the queen, she too had made a solemn vow. Hers was to to we, the people, to govern us justly, upholding our laws and customs.
When conducting the Coronation Oath in 1953, the Archbishop asked:
Will you solemnly promise and swear to govern the Peoples of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the Union of South Africa, Pakistan, and Ceylon, and of your Possessions and the other Territories to any of them belonging or pertaining, according to their respective laws and customs?
To which Queen Elizabeth replied:
I solemnly promise so to do.
This oath asserts that our ruling monarch and therefore her many agencies and authorities are duty bound to serve her people, respecting their rights, laws and freedoms.
There are those who go to great pains to remind us that we live in a democracy; that, in being elected, the Westminster government has ‘the people’s’ mandate to enact Acts of Parliament, laws and ‘guidelines’ – as though this mandate represents a free licence to ‘do what thou wilt.’
What many choose to overlook is that our nation is a Constitutional Monarchy. Yes, we too have a Constitution. Just as our trans-Atlantic cousins have theirs and a Bill of Rights, so too do we English. The US Constitution was, in fact, based on that of the English.
Like that of the United States, the English Constitution is immutable, the rights it bestows are inalienable. Untouchable.
In 1628 Chief Justice Sir Edward Coke stated:
Parliament may sometimes pass a law which is against common right and reason, or repugnant or impossible to perform, and [in such cases] Common Law would intercede and strike it down.
This was mirrored by Chief Justice Beresford who said:
There is no such thing as a bad law, for if it is bad, it is not law.
What are the basic principle of the Common Law, referred to by Coke?
- Cause no harm, loss or injury to another living soul or their property.
- Impose no threat of harm, loss or injury.
- Be honourable in all your dealings.
That’s pretty much it. If we transgress these fundamental tenets we commit a crime. All else are rules and contracts. And let’s not forget, a contract is an agreement between two or more parties. Without that agreement there is no contract.
None of Westminster’s Acts, laws and mandates may impinge on our Constitutional rights and those bestowed by the English Bill of Rights of 1688/89. These include the right to protest peacefully and to worship according to our faith. These rights are sacrosanct. Any attempt by parliament – or any of its agencies – to violate them is itself an act of sedition.
Such sedition represents a betrayal of the Sovereign, Constitution and people of England. This betrayal equates to the high crime of Treason.
In 1940 my father, together with tens of thousands of brave and like-minded patriots, embarked overseas to protect Britain from a fascist regime. Eighty years later we have in Britain a treasonous government serving the fascist agendas of a corrupt establishment and those of clandestine foreign entities.
Furthermore, in order to enforce its despotic tyranny on a beleaguered population, this unprincipled government has weaponised the nation’s police force, in which every complicit constable is guilty of perjury.
Meanwhile, our monarch’s silence tells its own shameful story.
Oath-breakers one and all.
