I have to confess I find youtube clips quite addictive and having searched for one end up watching others that are linked from the first.
It was in this way that I came across a clip on Jacob R-M who thinks himself a bit of a constitutional expert - well he is compared to the majority of cannon fodder who masquerade as MPs.
In it he made the point that it is the 'People' that are sovereign who lend that sovereignty to parliament expecting them to carry out their wishes. It is indeed true that at the time of a General Election sovereignty is given back to the 'People' who vote in a government who then should represent them.
The trouble is that once elected our politicians return to the now sovereign parliament, taking control of the sovereignty that was briefly given back to us. Our MPs then become absorbed into the Westminster bubble and completely ignore us. Then
just before the next election they promise us
the earth, with of course our money, to try get themselves re-elected.
Alot of people have now become aware of this scam and simply don't bother to vote.
So let's be clear Parliamentary sovereignty is a principle of the UK constitution. It makes Parliament the supreme legal authority in the UK,
which can create or end any law. Generally, the courts cannot overrule
its legislation and no Parliament can pass laws that future Parliaments
So Jacob R-M's assertion is misleading whether intentionally or not I can not say.
Our first and fourth and sixth demand addresses this problem The first recognises our inherent sovereignty which is confirmed in law by the sixth which gives us a written constitution and the fourth, most importantly, gives us the real power to hold the government to account between elections without which we have democracy in name only.
Real democracy must see the People recognised as sovereign and with the power to say NO when we wish to say so.
