THESE ARRESTS BREACH THE CLAIM OF RIGHT.

A post from regular columnist Mia.


The treaty of union was an instrument whose main and fundamental purpose was to ensure the exact same line to the throne down in England and here. Queen Anne in the 1700’s had not heir, and many in Scotland were of the opinion that on her death, Scotland should have a Scottish monarch, not one imported from elsewhere.

The union of crowns had happened some time before 1707. However, the several failed attempts to forge a political union between Scotland and England in the 17 and early 18th century before the actual treaty of union clearly demonstrate the powers that be knew the union of crowns would not last long unless they found another instrument to lock it. 

The Treaty of Union was that instrument. It is not coincidence that the Treaty of Union is also the instrument that has removed Scotland’s independence to pass new laws. The treaty of union was at all practical effects, and lawfully or not, England’s crown taking control of Scotland’s law making body and the line of succession to the Scottish crown.

If the union of crowns would not last in the 1700’s, it will last even less in the 21st century when so many people in Scotland see the monarchy as an anachronism and symbol of misplaced entitlement which has no place in a 21st century democracy.

Scotland’s independence, or rather the lack of, has and will always be about the monarchy and its survival. We are told the crown has very limited powers, yet the executive represents the crown in parliament and that executive is denying us the referendum.

Directly or indirectly, the crown appears to be controlling everything. The Crown prosecution service, for example, was at the center of the active suppression of information from the public in the Salmond case, including by gagging witnesses and threatening Mr Salmond and the parliamentary inquiry itsefl with prosecution if he defended himself during the parliamentary inquiry. This was outrageous. Let’s not forget that, allegedly, the English bill of rights gives parliament immunity from prosecution. We are told Holyrood is an extension of Westminster, yet the same privilege does not extend to Holyrood, it certainly did not extend to Holyrood’s parliamentary inquiry. Let’s not forget of Mr Murray’s case either. Were the actions of the COPFS even lawful in the context of the Claim of Right?

I wonder if the COPFS might also be behind the latest folly, which is the arrest of peaceful protesters in Edinburgh just because they explicitly oppose the monarchy in the third decade of the 21st century, in a so called “democracy” where, allegedly, we have freedom of thought and speech. Both actions, those described in the paragraph above and in this one have the appearance of being, besides an assault on democracy, a direct assault on freedom of speech and of the those people’s human rights.

The Claim of Right says:

“By Imprisoning persones without expressing the reasone and delaying to put them to tryall

By Causeing persue and forefault severall persones upon stretches of old and obsolete lawes upon frivolous and weak pretences upon lame and defective probationes as particularly the late Earle of Argyle to the scandal and reproach of the justice of the Natione”

These were considered in the Claim of Right unlawful actions going against the constitution of Scotland and justification to remove the crown from James VII. However, in the third decade of a 21st century democracy, and in light of what is happening and what was done to Mr Craig Murray and Mr Salmond, by the COPFS and what has happened to those protesters, it seems we are expected to forget the Claim of Right and consider unlawful actions and assaults on Scotland’s constitution by representatives of the crown, fair game.

MY COMMENTS

I never believed for a moment it would be possible to be arrested for being in possession of a blank piece of cardboard and a marker pen. Or for voicing criticism of someone who required £12 million pounds to be paid to avoid facing criminal charges over his behaviour. These are a signal that we no longer live in a true democracy where freedom of speech is respected and defended. It seems totally counter productive to me. No family, royal or otherwise, should hold powers to override our basic freedoms. Those responsible for these fascist attacks on freedom are doing more harm to the royal family than good. Scots, historically don’t react well to unfair oppression. I suspect once the queen is buried next Monday there will be a very strong reaction to what happened in Scotland this last week. At least I hope so if our freedoms are to mean anything in today’s world. The Claim of Right was created to tame out of control Royalty. Worth remembering that!

I am, as always

  1. He may have had to pay £12 million pounds compensation to women who alleged underage sex.

    He may also be unable to visit the US for fear of arrest on underage sex charges.

    But discredited as this man is, Prince Andrew was never the less out on show with the other royals doing a glad handing walk about photo shoot with crowds.

    Clearly the Jimmy Saville of the Royal family is back. And like Jimmy Saville he walks free.

  2. Agreed, these arrests by Polis Scotland are a massive misstep. This will backfire spectacularly. Republican sentiment in Scotland is not a obscure, minority belief (not that it should matter if it were). According to polling (excluding don’t knows) up to 43% of folk in Scotland want to abolish the monarchy. That figure was derived when we had a monarch with a sentimental, personal approval rating. The next round of polling will be interesting.

    Let’s remember that Polis Scotland don’t take an oath to the monarch (as do other UK Police forces), rather, they make a declaration to “ … uphold fundamental human rights and accord equal respect to all people, according to law.”. These individual officers should be reported for false arrest and breaching their duties.

    Perversely, we should welcome the heavy handed, fascist (a term I don’t use lightly) actions of Polis Scotland. Yesterday the scales were falling from eyes too long distracted by cultural frivolities, as to the true nature of our “democracy”.
    Even McPrävda redeemed themselves this morning with a front page protesting this assault on the populace by the fascist state.

      2. You are quite correct PP – from The Guardian 15.05.22:

        “However the poll, by the British Future thinktank, found that only 45% in Scotland said they wanted to retain the monarchy – with 36% saying the end of the Queen’s reign would be the right moment to move to a republic. Some 19% either rejected the choice, or said they didn’t know.”

        (see https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2022/may/15/scottish-support-for-monarchy-falls-to-45-poll-reveals).

        That is not the full picture though …

        The simple average of 3 polls conducted this year showed that the “monarchy” v “elected head of state” was 55% v 45% (excluding don’t knows) in Scotland
        (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scottish_republicanism).

        A simple average of the 7 polls conducted in 2022 showed a “monarchy” v “republic” split of 71% v 29% – excluding don’t knows – across the UK
        (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Republicanism_in_the_United_Kingdom).

        So a majority of those expressing a view were in favour of continuing cap doffing and forelock tugging in Scotland as well as across the UK as a whole.

        However, 55% v 45% in Scotland is not massive (i.e. same as Independence referendum 2014 result) whilst the UK is 71% v 29% which is.

        If you were able to extract Scotland from the UK number then the difference between Scotland and rUK would be even more stark since Scotland, by definition, is dragging down the pro-monarchy proportion in the published UK data.

        Whilst polling suggests that the death of Liz Windsor may reduce support significantly in Scotland I have my doubts – survey questions about views and attitudes under future circumstances and scenarios are notoriously unreliable. We’ll have to wait a while to see.

  3. Not sure if the establishment consider the arrests to be a misstep Vivian. This is what they do. The Police are but part of the corrupt mechanism of state that suppresses through all manner of means the crushing of democracy.

    Alex Salmond, Mark Hirst, Craig Murray, AUOB march organiser Manny Singh and many more are examples of Police intervention to take out, take down political opponents of the enchainment of the Scottish people. And make no mistake the Police Scotland are only one part of it. Digging deeper there is a partisan Crown Office Procurator Fiscal Service, a civil service headed by crown agents who like the COPS will have MI5 agents like David Harvie. Aided and abetted to by an absolutely biased and propagandist media continually on message, at every level, spreading whatever needs to be spread, destroying reputations where needed, Scotland the colony is in the grip of a vice that will do everything to retain Scotland as a colony.

    But of course England has a long history of fighting to retain colonial control. Military men like Brigadier General Sir Frank Kitson who fought anti independence campaigns from Kenya to Northern Ireland wrote books about. Books like Gangs and Counter, and Low Intensity Operations ( Faber and Faber ) he outline the strategies of using the police and the law to take out and incarcerate opposition politicians, of the absolute importance of controlling the media, of the neccessity to have agents infiltrate everything from protest groups to trade unions, to mechanisms of administration to political parties and movements.

    And of course, as the title Gangs and Counter Gangs suggests he was a proponent of using counter gangs to counter independence movement. Everything as he describes as that ” below symmetrical warfare ” the examples of the two Northern Ireland human rights lawyers shot and killed by Loyalist terrorists widely recognised to have been armed and directed by the shadowy undercover British Army Force Research ( FRU) the modus operandi of the British state in relation to colonial control is crystal clear.

    Our problem in Scotland is that we have for far to long not recognised the extent to which we are a colony and under the most insidious vicious control. Willie Macrae found that out as are many others now finding out.

    The claim of right is extant, the right to choose is very much alive, and all we have to do is take it. This week’s announcement of the cancellation of a peaceful democratic festival in Glasgow with the attendant message form Police Scotland that they cannot protect Alex Salmond is just the latest in the dirty war to keep Scotland a colony.

    Light however is the disinfectant that kills this sintering fascism – and yes, I think the cancellation of this Yes Festival, and the awareness of it’s cancellation and why will serve only to increase the wider awareness of what is actually going on.

      What’s important to remember about Kitson’s counterinsurgency manual is that it has been deployed a great many times and has only proven effective as a delaying tactic. The fact that they deploy it at all is to some degree an admission of impending defeat.

  4. Well our colonial police force carried out their duties to a tee yesterday arresting anyone who showed a modicum of rebellion or republicanism, or who dared to wave a placard that read Not My King.

    The British media has fawned over the demise of Queen Elizabeth night and day, for days now, but not one opposing voice is allowed to appear on the media, not one republican voice is allowed to say, well maybe the royals have had their day.

    Back to our colonial police force, Police Scotland, who had the Yestival cancelled until next month, on hearsay that unionist foot soldiers might cause trouble at it. Then there was the march in Calton, Glasgow on Saturday that our colonial police force kettled and forced to disband citing Section 12 of the Riot Act, even though it was a peaceful march agreed on with the GCC. The police commander has since been reporter for his behaviour.

    I see many people now writing on social media that the UK is slowly but surely slipping into fascism, if shutting people up and closing down peaceful protests and gatherings is a sign of it, then yes, I have to agree with them.

  5. I have always said get rid of the monarchy before Independence. It just doesn’t make sense to be Independent and have someone else’s monarchy as your head of state. Why all these so-called Indy parties want to keep the monarchy is beyond me. How can Scotland want to be Independent and say how bad the Union is and then turn around and say but we want to keep the English monarchy, aren’t these idiots shooting themselves in the foot with their own words.
    On 18.09.22 we’ll all gather in George Square and when we leave what will have been achieved? There must be a great many like me who think I’m sick and tired of being in the Independence Cul-De-Sac with the same old people taken us around and around. I personally think hold a referendum to get rid of the monarchy, then you have a better argument to put forward on why we should be Independent, because guess what there isn’t Unionism at the heart of Scotland anymore, because we have got rid of their head of state.
    But one thing is for sure what we need on the 18th in George Square is somebody getting people to sign up to Salvo. There will be many people there who haven’t even heard of https://liberation.scot/ or https://salvo.scot/ never mind signing up to them. If this isn’t done then the action proposed by Salvo is going to take years and years and years, and Scotland just doesn’t have years, because the Unionists aren’t just waiting to see what the Nationalist will do, they are taking action and their actions will be decisive action, heed my words.
    The people who have been arrested for protesting against Royalty is a failure of the politicians to listen and act, who once again are failing to take the action that the people of Scotland want a Republic. We need to stop asking politicians to take action but demand it of them, or tell them that we’ll remove them from office! If we had got rid of the monarchy years ago, we wouldn’t be in this brainwashing exercise that we have all been witnessing in the last couple of days that’s felt more like years.

    It’s a pity we can’t record time, because a year from now nothing will have changed mark my word. We are all still in this Cul-De-Sac with no way out, because the same and old and boring politician are telling us the same old and boring bull “we won’t be taken out of the EU against our will” he F*cking loves Westminster now, this is what we are up against.

  7. Breach of the peace is a common law offence, prosecuted in the Sheriff Court using the summary procedure.

    Neither of the reported arrests breach the Claim of Right Act 1689.

    Every case turns on its own merits in Scotland, as reported judgements clearly state.

    Meanwhile, the proclamations and Orders in Council from the new King go largely ignored, possibly as expected during a time of national mourning.

    Scotland is now exclusively in the hands of the Scottish Government., not Westminster Govt or Parliament

    Similarly, Wales is now exclusively in the hands of the Welsh Government.

    When we change the monarch, the constitution changes with it. Draft Orders in Council created by the Accession Council were approved and affirmed. Once Court of Session receives notice, that’s pretty much it.

    The administrative union is dead; Long live the King.

    1. “Scotland is now exclusively in the hands of the Scottish Government., not Westminster Govt or Parliament”

      Scotland remains under the authority of the ‘sole corporation’ that is the ‘Crown as the legal embodiment of executive, legislative, and judicial governance’. In Scotland the legal establishment and British/devolved governments form the main parts of this governance, each being key elements of the Crown.

      The Crown spread through English and later British colonisation, its powers being diminished upon the independence of former colonial territories and only being completely removed on their becoming a republic. In colonialism the Crown represents Imperial power, and thus force, as well as compliance, much as we see.

      Independence/decolonisation is therefore about the removal of the Crown and its corporate ‘agents’ who control a territories executive, legislative, and judicial governance and which allows it to be plundered and its people exploited and subjugated. In other words, British royalty and Scottish independence / decolonisation are not necessarily separate issues.

      1. With respect, you have missed what the new King actually proclaimed and assented to.

        In return for a Sovereign Grant, he has forfeited all inheritable property to the Scottish Government for the benefit of the common good. He unambiguously did not afford WM Govt any control over Scotland and its defined borders or laws.

        He clearly referred to his kingdoms of Scotland and England as separate entities and also, crucially, referred to the peoples (plural) of the nations that constitute these islands.

        The 1707 Acts were assented to for the better administration of Queen Anne’s personal business, not to incorporate 2 kingdoms into one homogenous entity or people.

        The new monarch has clearly expressed his view on how Scotland, Wales, England & Northern Ireland should be governed. As is his right, afforded by the common law of Scotland.

        The First Minister will be keeper of the new Great Seal of Scotland.

        The First Minister will be keeper of the new Seal for Wales.

        Secretary of State for Northern Ireland will be keeper of the new Seal for Northern Ireland, in line with the terms of the Belfast Agreement.

        England’s Lord Chancellor or such will do whatever they do with a new Royal Seal down there, outwith my jurisdiction that…

        Scotland is independent of Westminster again, save for any changes to the Privy Council deemed necessary for the betterment of advice to the King from his kingdoms.

        The monarch in Scotland is subject to the common law and pursuit of the common good like the rest of us, and has been for centuries.

        That’s an oft omitted, but certainly pertinent, aspect of the Claim of Right Act 1689.

        The political union is dead when confirmed at Court of Session.

        Nobody said it would be so easy, because the union of the crowns is a matter exclusively for the King or Queen & Privy Council via Order in Council etc;

        It’s a new day.

        Long live the King, as the body of his late mother leaves Scotland for the final time.

        Long live our crown, our parliament, our constitution and our people.

  8. Much evidence leads me to opine, for what that’s worth, that the whole Rule Britannia, United Kingdom edifice and everything that entails both socially and politically, is about to collapse to the ground in a panicked, crashing plume of smoke and dust reminiscent of a nuclear explosion. That the state “fire-brigade” and its auxiliary components will prove inadequate in the utterly transformed landscape will retreat in disarray at what confronts them, seems highly probable. Future historians will largely agree that everything might have remained, more-or-less, the same, had there been a degree of suppleness within the otherwise rigid structures of the, anyway, already crumbling edifice.

Even the delaying of the Yestival is just trying to hold off the inevitable because once the ceremonies and obligations to mourn are over there is going to be little else for the newspapers to sell. You ladies and gentlemen know that the narrative is to try engage us in their unity which isn’t unity at all. It’s like a refusal to let go of something that they know is over and they keep touching their own wounds just to assure themselves that for now it’s not healed. If you have to force, cancel or try prevent natural feelings of other people then it’s not real it’s fake. The polls and papers and TV are not something that we can consider to be the truth.

    ‘There is an arrogant faction in MI6, part of the Oxbridge clique, which doesn’t try to hide dedication to the royal family and their self-appointment as defenders if the realm’

    Smith goes on to detail how much material was unearthed by Mohamed Al Fayed’s private investigators – the vast majority of which was not made available for public consumption. Much of this information contradicts the official narrative and was, no doubt, instrumental in his belief that his son was murdered. Al Fayed, many will recall, was accused of sexual misconduct with members of his Harrod’s staff. Interesting.

    The new King spoke to his instructions being sent to the Court of Session at Accession Council.

    And his kingdom of Scotland, and its people.

    Every document was signed by the assembled AC individually, thus collectively; Ian Blackford used a pen with not enough ink and had to use a second to finish the job as Andrea Leadsom watched and waited.

    In return for a Sovereign Grant, Charles has forfeited his inheritable property (ie Scotland) to the Scottish Government & the new Great Seal of Scotland to the First Minister of Scotland.

    That ends ‘Westminster Parliament’ control and ‘colonisation’ of Scotland by any metric?

    The ‘nitty gritty’ of currency etc will be for another day, once official state mourning period ends?

    The treaty and related Acts will be repealed by proclamation and implication, but cooperation on defence should be expected by dint of loyalty to the wearer and function of the respective crowns in the kingdoms of Scotland & England, if the Orders in Council say what they actually say? [Don’t expect tanks at the border, or dissent from unionists or loyalists. The King has spoken & the union of the crowns remains peacefully and lawfully intact]

      The kingdom and of Scotland was formally acknowledged and given to the Scottish Government for the common good of the formally acknowledged people of Scotland. The new Great Seal was given to Scotland’s First Minister.

      Northern Ireland’s new Seal was given to the Secretary of State, upholding the Belfast Agreement and for the good of the people of Northern Ireland.

      The formally acknowledged kingdom of England will also have a new Seal. For the good of the people of England.

      Once the late Queen’s official period of mourning has ended, the logical conclusion is that further clarity can and will be given….

      SALVO et al. would have succeeded in ending WM ability to enact and amend Scots laws through evidence of popular support (measured against 5% threshold forcing local authorities in England to hold a referendum, if that quorum of registered electors submitted a formal request to do so)

      Anyone was free at any time to petition the monarch directly seeking remedy for breach of Acts & treaty…without fear of punishment or prejudice to rights, but the always unknown future a new monarch brings has lawfully effected constitutional change by proclamation and affirmation.

      The union of crowns is secure, which should please everyone.

      The constitution changes whenever the monarch changes, but the rule of law in Scotland remains.

      The 1707 union is dead; Long live the King.

  18. How many events are on that we know there’s going to be people there, doesn’t need to be political events. We could arrange for foot soldiers to get to the places with the paperwork. Wee campaign if folk get together and dae a wee bit of thinking, ideas together and then action. Instead of thinking all of the things that are an obstacle look for ways to get over them.

    1. I can’t recall who organised the paperwork however there was nae money attached and nothing to gain other than raising awareness and planting seeds of sovereignty. Afterwards everyone walked up to the Green for the Fireworks.

  20. You know there’s an awful lot of music and videos that you can use to your advantage. Why do you think that the media is used to tap into your emotions and it’s the same with films?
