PETITION TO THE QUEEN, RESPECTING BREXIT

If the present glory of Britain lies in The Commonwealth, then its shame lies in having allowed itself to be seduced into joiningthe European Union, weakening the trading ties between Britain and The Commonwealth.
On 23rd June 2016, the People of Britain had another vote, demanding that Britain withdraw from all subjugation and dominion by EU Court of Justice (except, perhaps, in certain discrete and essential areas), Members of the House of Commons, who are Representatives on other issues, are become Delegates in the matter of Brexit.
The People of Britain insist that there must be no barriers, or monitoring, or surveillance at the geographic border betwixt Northern Ireland and the Republic, So why are the EU using the border issue as an obstacle to trade negotiations. Travel and trade and the paraphernalia of tariff differences and product qualities and standards, across a border that is nothing but an imagined line on a map, CAN be adequately managed..
The EU27, who set the agenda, requiring compensation to be decided first, and trade negotiated last, have made the Irish border an instrument for thwarting Brexit. If there is no negotiated trade and customs agreement by October 2018, Parliament is left with two choices, either to withdraw from the EU without a pre-arranged trade and customs agreement, or to cancel Brexit.
Now, the Lords, supposedly free from political machinations, conspire with the EU27 to remove the first of these two choices, thereby forcing Britain to remain subject and subservient to the EU legislative system.
If Parliament will not, then Britons must stand firm and declare together that Britain will leave the EU, with an equitable trade deal or with none. If Britons stop squabbling and stand fast, as we have done in the past, then the EU27 will start negotiating seriously.
Parliament has Power, in Britain, but not Authority, save that to which the conceits of its Members pretend. Authority lies with the People only; and the People have vested that Authority not in Parliament but in the Sovereign, the servant and embodiment of the People. So long as Lords and Commons do not act contrarily to the Will of the People, or the Laws of God, the Crown is ever pleased to Assent and Seal to Law, the Bills presented by their Parliaments. However, should a rebellious Parliament seek to act against the declared Will of the People, then the duty of the Monarch is to use their Reserve Powers to delay Assent, and deny the Nation’s Seal, either recommending Parliament to think upon their behaviour, or, despite previous Parliaments’ attempts to frustrate the Sovereignty of the People, standing fast for the Dissolution of Parliament, and a General Election to reaffirm the People’s Will.
PETITION TO THE QUEEN, that, in the event of Parliament bringing forward a Bill to keep the United Kingdom and Northern Ireland within the legislative control of the European Union, contrary to the Will of the People, the Crown will use its reserve powers to halt such a Bill.
To our Sovereign Lady, Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God, of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and of Her other Realms and Territories, Queen, Head of the Commonwealth; We, our Sovereign’s most devoted and loyal subjects, pray to lay this Petition before the Throne, recognizing, but never presuming to teach, our Monarch’s authorities and duties under our glorious Constitution.
On 23rd June 2016, the People of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, voted in a binding Referendum that Britain must withdraw from the European Union. This presented a splendid opportunity, not only for Britons to regain their sovereignty, and consolidate their trade in Europe and around the World, but, much more importantly, for Britain to become the Great Facilitator for Prosperity amongst the Nations of The Commonwealth, especially the islands and smaller nations, and to begin to Repay the Debt owed by a wanton Imperial Rule, a debt which can never wholly be repaid.
We, the undersigned, insist that there must be no barriers, or monitoring, or surveillance at or near the geographic border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. We affirm that travel, trade, and the paraphernalia of tariff differences and standards of quality, across a border that is nothing but an imagined line on a map, can be managed within tolerable bounds.
We, the undersigned, howsoever we may have voted in the Referendum, assert that the Referendum result is a Binding Mandate to Parliament, as solemn as any instruction that a Sovereign People can make. We are troubled by rumblings of dissidence in both Houses of Parliament, against the declared Will of the People. It would be both extraordinary and intolerable for a British Parliament to act rebelliously against the People of Britain.
We, the undersigned, humbly entreat our Sovereign, that, if an approach to the Crown be made, which, contrary to the Will of the British People, attempts to deliver an Act or Treaty with the European Union that does not deliver full withdrawal from the European Union and from submission to its Courts, Our Sovereign Queen, shall use her Reserve Powers to delay or refuse the Crown’s Assent, and Recommend Parliament to address the Will of the People, or Dissolve.
God save the Queen.
