This time, prior to pulling the trigger, I sent the draft to my friend TSL. He proof-read it, suggested a couple of edits, and then explained, in gentle terms, why I should not publish it. He said it was a powerful piece, but contained within, (unbeknownst to me) were the reasons I should continue. TSL pointed out that we have merely arrived at the end of Chapter One. I had thought that the story was told. Anyway, I took some time to mull it all over and I agree with him. For your sage advice, old pal, I say thank you. I will march on.
Before we continue, I wanted to do a reality check. Prior to getting into this, I had no true understanding of politics or the judiciary, and the very notion that the monarch had defaulted to Citizen Windsor was an alien concept. I was wrong about many things and I thought a recap would help ground all of us. Some of this is fact, and some of it is my opinion. By now you will probably be able to spot the difference.
I will not drone on too much. I'll simply do each worrisome aspect in a few sentences. If you have doubts or questions, we'll deal with them in the comments.
From the top, then.
Madge, the House of Lords, and the House of Commons.
Mrs Windsor has committed treason. Thousands of times. She appears (given recent reports) to be much loved by the ignorati. (The masses are not stupid, they are just ignorant of the facts). Our constitution, spread over several documents, tells us that she is in error. Governing this country is done by three "teams"-Madge, the HoC, and the HoL. In 1972 Madge gave Assent to the European Communities Act. Actually, she breached her contract with the people at that time and the handing over of our nation to the EU began. Royal Assent is said to be automatic (thanks to the Parliament Act 1911), which weakens Madge's power. The House of Lords Act 1999 severely affected the Peers. Many were unlawfully excluded from the HoL and they were not permitted to take their seats despite having Writs and Letters Patent to do so. The result of this is that the HoC is effectively running the country on its own, with almost no oversight. An old-fashioned name for this system of government is tyranny.
Repeal ECA 1972 immediately. Repeal the Parliament Act 1911 and restore Royal Assent as per the constitution. Repeal HoL Act 1999 immediately and restore those Peers who were excluded. Rescind all of those Peerages granted by Labour during those terrible thirteen years of mismanagement. When we exit the EU most of our sovereignty issues disappear. We entered illegally, so an exit requires no protracted negotiations.
Every court in the land is illegal and unlawful. They got their authority from the monarch and as we have seen, the monarch is both a traitor and merely a citizen, like you or I. All courts are rendered impotent by Madges' treason and should be ignored. Furthermore, all courts are companies with limited liability. They are, for want of a better description, businesses. They are not there to render justice. If you want a topical example, look no further than "ranting lady on the tube". She was given a sentence of 21 weeks for her outburst about immigrants. Compare this with a drug-addled mother who left her two year old son to fend for himself whilst she and her partner were stoned upstairs. Their

Wind up all court "corporations". Repeal the many, many thousands of statutes that punish people who have caused no harm, injury or loss to their fellow beings. Retrain all JPs, magistrates, sheriffs and judges. Ensure they are competent to judge. (There must be a test we can devise to establish this). Oh, and swap ranty woman with drug woman. Her child died in her care and for that she should be in gaol. Free speech, however awful/nasty/disturbing, should never be punishable. Either we have free speech or we don't.
The office of constable is an ancient one. There was a time when constables were respected, and listened to. Police officers swear an oath to Madge. They do not swear an oath to protect and serve the public. These days police officers (for they too are officers of a corporation, all police forces are registered as Ltd companies) are trained using NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) and following their training, a thug emerges. Modern police officers have a propensity for violence. Look at the figures on serving policemen/women that have committed crimes. It is staggering. Many are let off the hook (that copper driving at 155mph last year, for instance. He was let off by the judge who "completely understood" the coppers need to test his new muscle-car on the motorway), but that pales into insignificance when you learn that many hundreds of people have died whilst in police custody, or have been ground to strawberry jam by a police car on its way to arrest someone. Compare the number of serious crimes committed with the number of convictions. Chalk and cheese.
All police need to be retrained. They need to be told the difference between law and statutes. They all think they are one and the same. They are not. Any copper breaking the law gets punished and loses his/her job. No if's, and's, but's or maybe's. They are there to provide an example to us all. Furthermore, any recruit testing positively for psychopathy is rejected as a candidate for the police force. (Right now, it is deemed a "must have"). Policemen and women will retake an Oath promising to protect and serve the people. Madge has plenty of soldiers looking after her at home, or when she is on the move. And, since she is no longer legitimate, the police oath is null and void anyway. Victims of crime are to be treated with respect. Perpetrators of crime should be treated like criminals upon conviction.
We all think that politicians care for our health. They do not. Any decisions made "for the good of public health" are usually wrong. Look at Avian Flu, Swine Flu or BSE, or any number of health "scares". They get it wrong with monotonous regularity. The smoking ban is a prime example of their stupidity. It was based on junk science. SCOTH ( the "scientific" committee on tobacco & health), had members of ASH, CRUK and the BHF on it. How on earth could they ever deliver a fair report? They bamboozled the dozy MPs and the legislation was born. It has killed almost 10,000 pubs in the last six years. Forget the fact that second hand smoke has never killed a single man or woman in the last six thousand years.
This is a huge subject and I am no expert. Where health is concerned, I would make it unlawful to have any committees populated with anyone who had an axe to grind. Make them completely independent. Rigorous questioning at the formulation of the committee will root out the nut-jobs. Regarding the NHS, I would remove that massive layer of management and reinstate matrons to ensure cleanliness and discipline on the wards. I would also allow people to opt out of paying for a service they rarely use, or give them the option to buy private health insurance. At the moment we can go private, but we are forced to continue contributing to the public purse. This is immoral and repugnant. If we must have a publicly-funded NHS, everyone gets it free at the point of need, or no-one does. Lately, badly-managed hospitals have been refusing to treat the smokers, the drinkers or the overweight. They still, however, treat the drug users. They still treat sporting injuries. They still treat people who have stupid accidents, or have alien objects jammed in places not designed for the object to fit. Decide what is self-inflicted and stick to it, or turn all away.
Once elected, they suddenly go blind, deaf and dumb. Once ensconced in the Westminster bubble, they stay there until voted out. Once they are there, it's a mad dash to claim expenses. Once there, it is de rigeur to fleece the public. Of all that tax we "voluntarily" throw their way, a massive proportion is wasted. They are world-class wasters of our money. Billions and billions of £££'s go to the most ridiculous recipients. They lie to us on the way in, and they lie throughout their tenure. It is the devils own task to find an MP that genuinely cares about his/her constituents. And, they are all the same. Seriously. Try to find the differences between Conservative, LibDem or Labour MP. You will struggle mightily. All are guilty of treason now, as they have all a) ratified legislation from the EU since 2010 or b) they have done nothing about the treason of those that did say "Aye" to those pieces of legislation.
There are far too many of these feckless people milling around in the HoC. Slash the number of MPs and the corresponding civil servants. We do not need six million people to service those 650. Call an immediate halt to all legislation transiting parliament, whatever stage it's at. Dump all EU legislation. Repeal pretty much all legislation. Let's go back to basics: we only need one law, do no harm. Those retrained judges will be able to decide fitting punishment for miscreants. Cease all payments to "third world" countries that have space programmes. Cease all bank loans to the IMF especially if they loan that money to nations that would do us harm. All quangos to go the way of the dodo. No exceptions. Cease all payments to "charities" that rely more on our (tax) money than donations. No exceptions. All manifesto promises are to be legally binding. No exceptions.
These are just the big ticket items. There are hundreds more. The Armed Forces for one. They need to be up-manned, they need better care when they return from theatre, their housing needs to be upgraded and better support given to their families. Taxation needs to be looked at and severe cuts need to be made in this forced collection of our sweat equity. A population with more in its pocket will spend more, and if they don't they will save more, and relieve us all of the need to pay for them in their old age. Control mechanisms in place for things like fuel, electricity, gas, tobacco and alcohol need to be eradicated. In a free society people should not be punished for using these items. If they die early, then so be it. More savings for the rest of us. Taxation on all of those things should be reduced immediately.
You could (almost) be forgiven for thinking that pharmaceutical companies exist to make you well. They do not. They need sick people like ASH needs smokers. If Big Pharma discovered a single pill tomorrow, one that cures all ailments, when do you think that pill would reach the shelves? The answer is never. They are businesses. They exist only to make money. Their products mostly alleviate symptoms but they almost never cure. They deal in drugs. Their drugs kill just the same as "illegal" drugs do. Have a look at these creatures around the web. You will see stuff that will turn your hair white. And who knows, they might just have a drug to return it to normal.
Britain is in the top five most surveilled countries in the world. It would seem that we are racing for the top spot. This will not end well. For us. For the watchers it will be orgasmic. But soon we won't be able to breathe without permits, or think without licenses. The rot set in some time ago but it is not too late to start to put things right.
Lastly, suppose, just suppose that I am right about Madge. Suppose I am right that she breached the contract with the people and she is now an Ordinary Jane with no more authority than you or I. Suppose that the courts are similarly castrated. The ramifications are almost unimaginable, but let's try. Everyone convicted in a court of law for the last forty years has been judged unlawfully. That includes the killers, the rapists, the kiddie-fiddlers, the thieves, and all manner of criminals. I am due in court next month and I have a great defence. Will they listen? Hell, no. For all of the reasons I mentioned, if I am right, they have to let those people go. Moreover, anyone who was ever fined for anything need to get their money back.
So it is an exercise in futility. I cannot win, no matter how right I am. The only one happy about me being a pain in the arse, is me. This is reason enough to go on. To keep trying. The system is poisoned and the more of us that say so, the more chance we have of getting things put right. Doing anything else is a lie. "Going along to get along" just perpetuates that lie. That awful deception.
I guess the only question you have to ask yourself is this: do I care enough to do something about it, or should I just keep pretending that everything is a-okay?
I'm just gonna get on with it.
I like saying "No". I like being awkward. I like asking them the tough questions. I like denying them that easy money. I like making their lives uncomfortable. I like it because it is the right thing to do.
But, it's your life. We pass this way but once. You have to live with yourself, I don't.
The decision is yours and yours alone.
