The power of III

Summum ius summa iniuria--More law, less justice

The Spirit of Runnymede lives on in the UK--kindred constitutional conservatism

Maybe you've seen this over the last couple of days, either from Lew Rockwell or Drudge:

About 600 members of a constitutionalist pro-Liberty group in England stormed a courtroom in County Court, Birkenhead, Merseyside.  They were attempting a citizen's arrest of a judge who was conducting a hearing about one of the members not paying a local council tax.

I thought you might like to know more about the group itself, the British Constitution Group.

The group advocates lawful rebellion, claiming the right originates from the Magna Carta of 1215, signed at Runnymede, England. 

From their website:

"We, the British People have a right to govern ourselves. That right has been subjugated as a consequence of acts of treason having been committed by the collective political establishment, aided and abetted by corrupt segments of the judiciary, the police, the Church and the civil service.

We are no longer prepared to tolerate the subjugation of our rights to satisfy the demands of the shadowy elite of the supranational and criminal banking cartel.

We are no longer prepared to tolerate the lies, deceit and shady practices of politicians that are the hallmarks of corrupt governance around the world.

We are no longer prepared to accept a compliant and colluding media that has been complicit in the aforementioned criminal acts by a lax and pathetic coverage of vital issues.

The collective political establishment has for the past four decades conspired to transfer our national sovereignty into the hands of foreign governance, without our consent and against the rule of law.

We are demanding that our sovereignty be reinstated, our rights be respected and the rule of law upheld."

Sounds familiar to me...
