Attached below is a small extract from Locke’s clear analysis of ‘Authority’ – in all aspects similar to what had been conceived by the Barons of England, 400 years earlier, and to which the then monarch, King John (Lackland), gave his consent at Runnymede.
Article 61 could not have been more definitely expressed.
(With apologies to the 17th Century textual definition of ‘authority versus slavery’, we have reproduced it here in slightly modernised vocabulary. Just because a truth becomes aged, it does not thereby become false.)
“Whenever the Legislators may attempt to take away, and destroy, the Property of the People, or try to reduce them to Slavery under Arbitrary Power, they put themselves into a state of War with the People, who are thereupon absolved from any further Obedience, and are left to the common Refuge, which God hath provided for all Men, against Force and Violence.
Whenever therefore the Legislative shall transgress this fundamental Rule of Society; and either by Ambition, Fear, Folly or Corruption, conspire to grasp for themselves, or put into the hands of any other, an Absolute Power over the Lives, Liberties, and Estates of the People, then;
By this breach of Trust they forfeit the Power, which the People had put into their hands, for quite contrary ends, and the Power then devolves to the People, who have a Right to resume their original Liberty.”
(John Locke (1632-1704) – Two Treatises of Government) – (Magna Carta Article 61).
These then, are the foundational principles upon which our nation had relied, and grown strong in the world, for the following 750 years, until our civil representative, the then Prime Minister, Edward Heath, took it upon himself to lead the public astray by introducing a foreign element.
There is clear documentary evidence, well understood by those who have taken the time and trouble to unearth it, that the man Heath knew exactly what his decision entailed, knew which foreign elements were actually going to be involved, and why they were offering to the then Tory government something which was to be presented in the guise of an ‘economic’ benefit to all concerned.

Here we are now, 45 years on, our national slumber finally disturbed, our spirits aroused at the arrogance and intransigence of the same political party’s continued determination to force upon a free nation such slavery as was, and which remains, totally contradictory to everything upon which our British nation still (currently) stands.
The democratic vote, on Thursday 23rd June 2016, has split the nation into two camps, those who have seen the Light – and those who seem intent on throwing a large dark blanket over it.
There were 323 Members of Parliament (MP) supporting the Tory cause, and no-one seems keen to mention that 138 of these had seen the Light, and had voted with their conscience to LEAVE the European Union (EU).
On the other side of the Chamber there were 228 Labour MPs, of which, apparently, only 10 (ten) were sensible enough to see what is going on and to vote ENOUGH, the remainder happy to continue hiding under a (red) blanket.
For those of you who are paying attention, we are then left with a rag-tag assortment, (99 in number) which, with just ONE notable exception, seem determined to hang on to the EU coat-tails, or had sent in a ‘sick-note’ on the day of the Referendum Vote.
We know now that, of the general public, some six million Red Flag adherents also voted OUT, which contrasts sharply with their Party position. When the word this weekend got out that Mrs Mayhem is sniffing around, undemocratically, for so-called cross-party support for what has become ‘HER’ Brexit deal, we can conclude that Party Politics is dead.
Those of us, who do not agree with Richard Dawkins’s theory that we all took X-billion years to develop a conscience, will now be fasting, watching and praying that Truth will prevail over Lies, that Light will overcome Darkness, as we wrestle to get our country’s head out of the ‘tiger’s’ mouth.
