There are many unwritten customs which are considered to be ancient traditions that have always belonged to the People. One obvious example is the right to free speech, for which, unlike the U.S. Constitution, there is no written provision within the British Constitution. So while we have shown in the previous pages that our rights and liberties are clearly stated in written contracts, it is also true that many of our rights, whilst not in written form, are equally valid.
Today the British Constitution is in grave danger. Moves are afoot to replace the Bill of Rights and the Act of Settlement. These are to be replaced by a new "Bill of Rights" and a European constitution. Britain's constitutional documents are timeless, and were constructed by the People. The new "constitutional" documents will be written by politicians. Which would you trust?
Parliament has grabbed executive power from the Crown. The House of Lords has become a body which blindly follows the party whip. And today, our Monarch simply complies with the wishes of the Prime Minister, with no thought or consideration to our sovereignty or the Constitution. Nor, it seems, to the solemn oath she took at her Coronation.
[executive power] will corrupt the legislature as necessarily as rust corrupts iron ... and when the legislature is corrupted, the people are undone.
It is up to us to fix this situation. Join us.
