Two areas of the British class system which could have been erased in the Chancellor’s budget and which would have saved us enormous amounts would have been the institutions of the House of Lords and the Monarchy.
The latter seem determined to bring the British people into disrepute, with, for example, individuals wanted for questioning by the FBI and accusations of ‘racism’.
The whole bloated number of privileged personnel on this particular band wagon who are supported in their luxury lifestyles by taxpayers’ money and huge landed estates is breathtaking ! This outdated institution is at the apex of the British class system.
Similarly, the bloated House of Lords where all you need is to show your face to receive handsome sums of taxpayers’ hard- earned money has proved to be a drag on British democracy and a generally useless appendage to our system of so-called governance.
The blueprint and precedent for removing these institutions came in 1649.
On March 17th 1649 came ‘The Act abolishing the office of King’ (now it would be ‘monarch’.
On March 19th 1649 came ‘An Act abolishing the House of Lords’.
To quote from this Act, ‘The Commons of England (today it would be Britain) assembled in Parliament, finding by too long experience that the House of Lords is useless and dangerous to the people of England (Britain) to be continued, have thought fit to ordain and enact and be it ordained and enacted by this present Parliament and by the authority of the same, that henceforth the House of Lords in Parliament shall be and is hereby abolished and taken away’.
On May 19th 1649 came ‘An Act declaring England (today Britain) to be a Commonwealth.
In full, this read ‘Be it declared and enacted by this present Parliament and by the authority of the same that the people of England (now Britain) and of all the dominions and territories thereunto belonging are and shall be, and are hereby constituted, made, established and confirmed, to be a Commonwealth and Free State and shall from henceforth be governed as a Commonwealth and Free State by the supreme authority of this nation, the representatives of the people in Parliament and by such as they shall appoint and constitute as officers and ministers under them for the good of the people, and that without any King (monarch) or House of Lords.
