Our Constitution is worth defending

“The liberties of our country, the freedoms of our civil Constitution are worth defending at all hazards. It is our duty to defend them against all attacks. We have received them as a fair inheritance from our worthy ancestors. They purchased them for us with toil and danger and expense of treasure and blood.

It will bring a mark of everlasting infamy on the present generation enlightened as it is – if we should suffer them to be wrested from us by violence without a struggle, or to be cheated out of them by the artifices of designing men”

Samuel Adams 1722-1803

As true today as it was then, but few know or care of our constitution, and the rights and liberties that it affords us, nor how precious it is to our future freedoms and well-being.

but… from the Talking Clock comes this..

want to see a politician standing up in the House of Commons telling you that you are RIGHT!? That the constitution DOES come first and that statutes have to – lawfully – play second fiddle?

This is a gem… I expect to see this on every neighbouring blog by teatime tomorrow:

Mr Cash: Has it occurred to the right hon. Lady or, indeed, to those on the Government Front Bench that we have habeas corpus, and that in such conditions it is the first duty of any judge to give effect to that provision? It does not matter what statute says; habeas corpus comes first, unless it has been expressly excluded by statute.

Enjoy!

And Mr, Cash – if you are reading… thank you. We, the people wish we knew what we could do to support your position more. Instead, we are left simmering – though some are boiling – with rage instead.

End note: [Bill Cash MP] is a qualified solicitor, and has his own practice in London – William Cash and Co. Source

Thanks TC for bringing this to our attention.

“If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.” — Samuel Adams

    Prior to mass brainwashing of the population my convent school taught the children there, that we had both a bill of rights and constitution.

    John Adams, the lawyer and US President who helped to frame the American Constitution, called the British Constitution the most stupendous fabric of human invention in history.
    What did John Adams know? Is that knowledge being kept from the British people? Is the Constitution being betrayed? And how does the British Constitution resemble an oak tree?

    A stupendous invention

    A constitution describes how government will be organized and its fundamental principles. The fundamental principles of the British Constitution are rooted in the Christian idea that each of us is an individual created by God to be a free moral agent. Just as our family Christmas traditions are unwritten, some parts of the British Constitution are unwritten. However, many crucial parts of the Constitution are written down and have been for centuries. They are:

    Parliament’s 2008 approval of the European Union’s Lisbon Treaty will destroy the Common Law and the liberties of the British people and make them subservient to Brussels. The EU is constructed like every other would-be tyranny – it asserts that it gives the people their rights. This is false, but it means that it can take them away.

    The British Constitution embodies the natural rights and freedoms of the people, which are theirs by birthright. The British Constitution and British liberties will only survive if the people defend them.

    Amen to that!!

    Ian,
    Roger Hayes found that Habeous Corpus is no longer effective on the 8th March. The court insisted on £450 up front before accepting an application and the department that has been allocated deal with these is part of the unconstitutional “Administrative Court”.

    Regards, John: of the hurst family.
