The West Briton,
The talented and skilfully assembled inaccuracies of your West Briton report of 7th February 2008 under the title “Questions over suspect’s treatment” arouses the suspicion of the press exploiting the freedom of the press.
No contact was made with the Cornish Stannary Parliament by the West Briton regarding the above article which reported incorrectly that three members of the Cornish Stannary Parliament were Police suspects.
The West Briton article also reported a statement by a member of the Celtic League that a member of the Cornish Stannary Parliament was questioned for 10 hours on 16th January. This is completely untrue. The CSP is not responsible for the past, present or future actions or statements made by members of the Celtic League whether named or unnamed in the article or whether resident in the UK or Spain.
The West Briton deserves “The Boot Lickers Award of the Year” for its cringing support for Police persecution of a member of the Cornish Stannary Parliament. The surveillance techniques available to the Police would long since have revealed to them that the one Stannary suspect, along with other members of the Cornish Stannary Parliament, no doubt suspects by association, has been involved in legitimate and legal research into the constitutional position of the Duchy of Cornwall. The problem is that certain elements of society have the freedom to criminalize the messengers whose research exposes constitutional secrets as the basis and reason for an unwritten constitution. There is also no legal foundation for the Duchy of Cornwall to claim the private estate status which enables it to profit from the absence from English law of a guaranteed right to equality before the law. Equality before the law should be provided for everyone in Britain as a constitutional right in force world-wide under Article 7 of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights of 1948.
Why does the media fail to investigate the reason why innocent people are not protected from the abuse of power and openly challenge the results of research published on the
...for and on behalf of
The Cornish Stannary Parliament.
