Dear Her Majesty’s Courts and the Tribunals Service,

In an earlier foi response you chose to refer me to the Magistrates Court "Act" 1980.

Can you please confirm the following to be true?

Parliamentary statutory acts can only receive "force of law" by consent. Therefore if an
individual "does not consent", statutes and acts are unenforceable.
Furthermore England IS a common law jurisdiction and it's laws rule
supreme over any and all statutory acts.

Yours faithfully,

A. Clerk

A Clerk/Interested readers:

The term 'by consent' is not a reference to by the consent of the general population, it is a reference to 'by consent of the Monarch' - who under the UK system of Constructional Monarchy must consent (sign) before an Act becomes law.

There are recorded instances, since the establishment of this system of government, where a Monarch has delayed legislation by not immediately consenting - most recently during the reign of Queen Victoria when she went into mourning/seclusion following the death of Prince Albert.

That Crisis was eventually averted due to the efforts of the then Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli, who was able exercise his influence over the Queen to persuade Her Majesty to resume her Constitutional duties.

In the modern era, should a Monarch 'unreasonably' delay consent and not respond to Parliament's requests , it is likely that Parliament would treat this as a Constitutional Crisis and either remove the historic requirement - or simply act as the Government and impose adoption of the delayed legislation if sufficiently important to the Nation's interests or the 'Rule of Law'.

Interestingly, the remaining provisions of Magna Carta actually provide for such an action and in theory could be used - subject to obtaining the agreement of a specified number (12) of the Nobility (of Baron rank or above - in modern terms meaning those members of the House of Lords of that rank or higher). In the Freeman on the Land school of thought this is referred to as 'Lawful Rebellion' and actively promoted - making it kind of 'difficult' to argue against within their own framework of beliefs.

Everyone is entitled to be right at least once, whether they wanted to be or not, although quite how 'Freemen' as a group would react to the application of Magna Carta to resolve such a crisis would be truly fascinating to see.
