Lord Chief Justice Fortescue observes,—” In the time of all the different nations and kings who have governed Britain, it has always been governed by the same customs as form the base of its laws at present. If these ancient British customs had not been most excellent—reason, justice, and the love of their country, would have induced some of the kings to change or alter them, especially the Romans, who ruled all the rest of the world by the Roman laws.
“On equally solid grounds of evidence, the social state of Britain has been described as from its first settlement by Hu the Mighty, that of a civilized and polished community. Had no other monument of Kymric antiquity but the Code of British Laws of Molmutius (B.C. 600), which still forms the basis of our common or unwritten law, descended to us, we could not doubt that we were handling the index of civiliza tion of a very high order. In such a code we possess not only the most splendid relic of pre-Roman Europe, but the key to all our British, as contra-distinguished from – Continental institutions. After perusing it, we stand amazed at the blindness which wanders groping for the origin of British rights and liberties in the swamps of the motherland of feudal serfdom-Germany. We need not go so far as to affirm, with a learned author, that “barbarism and slavish institutions first entered Britain with the German Saxon”; but we may safely contend that no part of the Continent could supply Britain with what it never possessed itself. British spirit and freedom are wholly of native British origin, and out of Britain they are imitations or fallacies, not realities. The Continent is an aggregate of nations ruled on the despotic principle. The Anglo-Saxon of America returns out of Britain to just what the Anglo-Saxon of Germany and England was—a seller and driver of slaves.” “The Usages of Britain could not be altered by any act or edict of the Crown or National Con vention. They were considered the inalienable rights to which every Briton was born and of which no human legislation could deprive him. Many of these usages are remarkable for their humane and lofty spirit: for instance, “There are three things belonging to a man, from which no law can separate him—his wife, his children, and the instruments of his calling; for no law can unman a man, or uncall a calling.”
The most learned Jurists refer the original Institutes of our Island to the Trojan Law brought by Brutus. Lord Chief Justice Coke (Preface to Vol. iii. of Reports), affirms, “the Original Laws of this land were composed of such elements as Brutus first selected from the Ancient Greek and Trojan Institutions.”
It is to these native Laws, and not as has been absurdly alleged, to any foreign or Continental source—German, Saxon, or Norman, Britons have in all ages been indebted for the superior liberties they have enjoyed as contrasted with other nations. Lord Chancellor Fortescue, in his work “on the Laws of England,” justly observes, —” concerning the different powers which Kings claim over their subjects, I am firmly of opinion that it arises solely from the different nature of the original institutions. So the Kingdom of Britain had its original from Brutus and the Trojans who attended him from Italy and Greece, and were a mixed Government compounded of the regal and democratic.”
Another British or Trojan Law remains in full force,—that the Sceptre of the Island might be swayed by a Queen as well as a King. In the Pict Kingdom the succession went wholly by the female side. Amongst the continental nations no woman was permitted to reign. The Saxon considered it a disgrace for a King to be seen seated on a throne with a Queen.
The names of the Leading Greek and Trojan families remained among their Cymric descendants till a very recent period. Some are still in use. All ought, as a matter of national honor, to be revived.”

And here’s some more to sink your teeth into – “After an interregnum of some years, occupied by the contests of various claimants to the throne, Dyvnwal Moelmud, hereditary Duke of Cornwall, and the representative by both paternal and maternal descent, of the younger line of the Britan nidæ, was by general consent recognized Sovereign Paramount. His first act was to reduce to a Code the civil and international usages which the late commotions had disturbed. The Laws, thus systematized, are eminently distinguished for their clearness, brevity, justice, and humanity. They have come down to us in the Druidic form of Triads. We give a few examples.
“There are three tests of Civil Liberty,—equality of rights—equality of taxation—freedom to come and go.
There are three causes which ruin a State,—inordinate privileges—corruption of justice—national apathy.
There are three things which cannot be considered solid longer than their foundations are solid,—peace, property, and law.
Three things are indispensable to a true union of Nations, —sameness of laws, rights, and language.
There are three things free to all Britons,—the forest, the unworked mine, the right of hunting wild creatures.
There are three things which are private and sacred property in every man, Briton or foreigner,—his wife, his children, his domestic chattels.
There are three things belonging to a man which no law of men can touch, fine, or transfer,—his wife, his children, and the instruments of his calling; for no law can unman a man, or uncall a calling.
There are three persons in a family exempted from all manual or menial work—the little child, the old man or woman, and the family instructor.
There are three orders against whom no weapon can be bared—the herald, the bard, the head of a clan.
There are three of private rank, against whom no weapon can be bared,—a woman, a child under fifteen, and an unarmed man.
There are three things that require the unanimous vote of the nation to effect,—deposition of the sovereign—introduc tion of novelties in religion—suspension of law.
There are three civil birthrights of every Briton,—the right to go wherever he pleases—the right, wherever he is, to protection from his land and sovereign—the right of equal privileges and equal restrictions.
There are three property birthrights of every Briton,—five (British) acres of land for a home—the right of armorial bearings—the right of suffrage in the enacting of the laws, the male at twenty-one, the female on her marriage.
There are three guarantees of society,—security for life and limb—security for property—security of the rights of nature.
There are three sons of captives who free themselves,—a bard, a scholar, a mechanic.
There are three things the safety of which depends on that of the others,—the sovereignty—national courage—just administration of the laws.
There are three things which every Briton may legally be compelled to attend,—the worship of God—military service—and the courts of law.
For three things a Briton is pronounced a traitor, and forfeits his rights, emigration—collusion with an enemy —surrendering himself, and living under an enemy.
There are three things free to every man, Britain or foreigner, the refusal of which no law will justify,—water from spring, river, or well—firing from a decayed tree—a block of stone not in use.
There are three orders who are exempt from bearing arms,—the bard—the judge—the graduate in law or religion. These represent God and his peace, and no weapon must ever be found in their hand.
There are three kinds of sonship,—a son by marriage with a native Briton—an illegitimate son acknowledged on oath by his father—a son adopted out of the clan.
There are three whose power is kingly in law,—the sovereign paramount of Britain over all Britain and its isles —the princes palatine in their princedoms—the heads of the clans in their clans.
There are three thieves who shall not suffer punishment,—a woman compelled by her husband—a child—a necessitous person who has gone through three towns and to nine houses in each town without being able to obtain charity though he asked for it.
There are three ends of law,—prevention of wrong—punishment for wrong inflicted—insurance of just retribution.
There are three lawful castigations,—of a son by a father —of a kinsman by the head of a clan—of a soldier by his officer. The chief of a clan when marshalling his men may strike his man three ways—with his baton—with the flat of his sword—with his open hand. Each of these is a correction, not an insult.
There are three sacred things by which the conscience binds itself to truth,—the name of God—the rod of him who offers up prayers to God—the joined right hand.
There are three persons who have a right to public maintenance—the old—the babe—the foreigner who cannot speak the British tongue.”
These and other Primitive Laws of Britain, not only rise far superior in manly sense and high principle to the Laws of Ancient Greece and Rome, but put to shame the enactments of nations calling themselves Christians at the present day. They contain the essence of law, religion, and chivalry. A nation ruling itself by their spirit could not be otherwise than great, civilized, and free. One of their strongest recommendations is, that they are so lucid as to be intelligible to all degrees of men and minds.
In addition to being one of the founders of British Legislation, Dyvnwal designed and partly made the Royal British Military Roads through the Island. These were nine in number,—
1. The Sarn Gwyddelin (corrupted into Watling street), or Irish Road, in two branches, from Dover to Mona and Penvro.
2. The Sam Iken (Iknield street), the road from Caer Troia, Northward through the Eastern districts.
3. Sam Ucha (Iknield street), from the mouth of the Tyne to the present St. David’s.
4. Sam Ermyn, from Anderida (Peven sey) to Caer Edin (Edinburgh).
5. Sam Achmaen, from Caer Troia to Menevia (St. David’s).
6. Sam Halen, from the Salt Mines of Cheshire to the mouth of the Humber.
7 Sam Hàlen, from the Salt Mines to Llongborth (Portsmouth).
8. The Second Sam Ermyn, from Torbay to Dunbreton on the Clyde.
9. The Sam ar y Môr, or military road following the coast around the Island.
These roads were pitched and paved, and ran sometimes in a straight, sometimes a sinuous line, at a moderate elevation above the ground, forming a network of communication between the Cities of Britain. Being completed by Belinus, they are known as the Belinian roads of Britain. The Romans followed these lines in their first and second invasions, and subsequently laid down in great measure their own military roads upon them. Hence the Belinian and Roman roads are found constantly running in and out of each other.”

Now that should get some of the old juices flowing. And of course, all of this applies across the Common Wealth . . . THESE ARE OUR ANCIENT UNALIENABLE RIGHTS …“There are three things the safety of which depends on that of the others,—the sovereignty—national courage—just administration of the laws.” All of this SAXON-ROMANO-GERMANIC bullshit masquerading as LAW has to go. And the fumbling, bumbling sophists in the JUDICIARY, the MEDIA and all those PSY OP machinists in the VATICAN, PARLIAMENT etc etc with them. The whole house of cards – and let’s be clear: that is precisely how it is – has to collapse for it is nothing more than an elaborate web of lies constructed from gossamer thin paper.
It needs collapsing, not reconstructing because everyone is chasing round bits of paper and paying to be on the planet we were born on… how the feck did that happen?
