The King is dead long live the King

The King of England can never die, so says the ancient common law of English Kingship. Henry, John, Edward and George may die the last breath of the dying King is immediately followed by the first breath of the new King.

The King is the current holder of the office of the Crown and as the office of the Crown cannot die neither can it be without a King so the common law does not permit the King to die. Hence the phrase the King is dead long live the King.

The very second King Charles I head was severed from his body his son became King Charles II. King Charles II was kept from his Throne for 11 years by Parliament and Oliver Cromwell. But on being invited to take his Throne he did not repeal any laws passed during the Republic because none of these laws had received the Royal Assent so were not law. All immediately ceased to have any effect.

The King can do no wrong. The law imagines the King can do no wrong but you can not have a crime which can not be punished, so the law assumes that as the King can do no wrong he must have been badly advised. So the law prosecutes the advisors and punishes them.

In order for the King to do his job the common law of Kingship bestowed upon him authority over and above that bestowed on any subject. This authority makes the King the Supreme Governor of England and we call this higher authority the Royal Prerogative, there are those who say it is difficult to define the limit of the Royal Prerogative I disagree. The King can take any action give any order which benefits the Kingdom and the subject. The King may not in law take any action or give any order which harms the Kingdom or even one of his subjects. The Royal Prerogative is granted to the King by the people to allow him to rule. The King may not legally loan or transfer any prerogative power to anyone or anything else. The prerogative is granted to the King and only the King, and is for his sole use.

The King cannot make law for that would make him a dictator like the European Kings, what the prince says is the law. England’s Kings cannot make law but they can and should stop bad law by refusing the assent. So the Kings authority is of the negative kind the ability to say no to bad law or proposed wars or treaties which are not in our best interests.

King Henry VIII was an arrogant bully who regularly abused his position and exceeded his use of the prerogative, such as in the case of Richard Rose. Richard was cook to the Bishop of Rochester a friend of the Kings, the Bishop annoyed Richard who poisoned the meal killing 17 people. The correct thing was to place him on trial and if found guilty apply the sentence the law decreed. Henry VIII ordered Richard Rose taken to Smithfield and boiled alive. That is what happened to Richard Rose. This became known as an Henry VIII power. Parliament today claim to rule by Henry VIII power. The problem is these purported powers were illegal when Henry VIII used them by murdering Richard Rose, and they are still illegal now. They claim this Henry VIII power would allow them to pass a law saying all blue eyed babies born in June must be killed and that would be the law.

Unfortunately our law makers know nothing of the law even those legally qualified are ignorant of English Law. Or they would know such a law would be repugnant to the people, against common right and reason, and because the people would unite to protect the children impossible to perform. The Common Law would strike it down.

Chief Justice Stonor ruled Law is that which is right. Chief Justice Beresford ruled there is no such thing as a bad law, for if it is bad it is not law.

All other authorities, supremacies, and superiorities enjoyed by the King of England are directly as a result of his first and foremost being King of England. The King must be richer than his subjects and he must have more authority than his subjects. This is to keep him in an exalted position over his subjects. So the Parliament MUST give the King more than he needs in case a sudden emergency arises.

King John broke the law and exceeded his authority when he and six Barons and two Bishops surrendered England to the Pope in 1213 at Dover. On coming of age his son King Henry III placed the Barons who had assisted his father on trial for treason, and wrote to the Pope stating he Henry answered directly to God for all things ecclesiastical and to his subjects for all things spiritual.

In 1366 a meeting of the Estates of England comprising the Lords Spiritual, the Lords Temporal and the Commonality of England met at the request of King Edward III to decide the matter, the Estates of England did not rush the discussion but reached the only legal/lawful decision they could.   England did not belong to King John he only held it in trust for those who followed on. King John broke the law his gift to the Pope was illegal and was void. King Edward III we are told wrote roundly to the Pope.

The Estates of England is the highest law giving body in the land capable of hiring and firing Kings and Parliaments.

This one major constitutional ruling makes every EEC/EU treaty illegal and void.

The estates of England meet infrequently but when they do it is in times of national emergency, they met in 1215 at Runnymede where they drew up Magna Carta 1215, they met in 1366 to discuss King Johns surrender of England to the Pope in 1213, they ruled it illegal and of no effect, they met again in 1689 where they drew up the Declaration of Right and they offered the Crown to William and Mary.

 Treason in Parliament

 When Parliament do something which harms the Kingdom or the army, an officer or General can appoint himself the Sheriff of the nation, and go into Parliament and arrest 100 of the offending politicians and charge them with treason. The politicians should be tried by the House of Commons. However Parliament gave up the right to try there own, so they are now tried by the ordinary courts.

 Naturalisation Denizenisation

 When some one comes to England and applies for British nationality and it is granted, they place themselves in a difficult position because under the law their first loyalty is to the country of their birth. If this country went to war with the country of their birth they should in law return to that country if they remain here they commit an act of treason against the country of their birth. If they return home and support their original country they commit an act of treason against us.

If they have children here those children take the nationality of the father so if the father originally came from India the child is Indian. If an English man lives in Russia and marries a Russian woman any child they have is English. If an English woman goes to Russia and marries a Russian man any children they have are Russian.

If a person comes here and is naturalised British they receive most though not all the rights of a natural born subject they can buy and sell inherit or leave property, what they may not do is sit in either House of Parliament, sit on the Privy Council. receive any order of Nobility or hold any office of public trust. ( in short they are never to be trusted ) The Sovereign is forbidden by the common law of Kingship from ever changing that law.

The object of that law is to keep England under the safe governorship of an English King and the indigenous people of England.

The oaths from the Act of Supremacy 1559 and the Bill of Rights 1689 both major constitutional law state.

No foreign prince, person, state or potentate, hath or ought to have any power, superiority, supremacy or authority ecclesiastical or spiritual within this land.

With this oath in mind it makes no sense to allow any naturalised subject to hold any public office, and most assuredly we must at all costs remove all Denizens from every office of public trust and do it now. We can start by not voting for anyone but a natural born subject at the next election and all other elections. Write to the chief Officer of your police force and ask him to arrest those natural born subjects who have placed denizens in offices of public trust for treason, write to your MP if he is a natural born subject demand he upholds the law, if he is a denizen order him gone in the name of the law.
