In the end the Britons of Cornwall were compelled to accept the river Tamar as their boundary - submission to the House of Commons and the House of Lords
The veto provision of the Charter of Pardon 1508
As submitted to the House of Commons and the House of Lords 6th October 2010
With modern fundamental international human rights provisions excluded from the English legal system along with highly selective and partisan exclusions in the implementation of Acts of Parliament, our elimination as a Cornish national minority is consequently considered to be legally possible in English law as demonstrated above, (legal details to follow on web site) it is affirmed that the people of Cornwall are entitled to expect the government of the United Kingdom to respect the spirit and intent of the Charter of Pardon 1508, and therefore,
Barring the intervention of Prince Charles, The Duke of Cornwall, with a veto under the provision for: “Draft Bill to be sent to The Duchy of Cornwall”, in respect of:- “legislation regarding the potential it may have on Duchy operations and/or privileges”, (Guide to Legislative Procedures, Cabinet Office 2004, – para.14.6),
We, the members of the Cornish Stannary Parliament, are convinced that we have no alternative but to exercise our historic duty and legal right to veto the following otherwise unchallengeable laws representing socio-economic inequalities and institutional racial discrimination both direct and indirect against the Cornish people, beginning with the most recent:-
1. The Bill proposing to create cross border Tamar Parliamentary constituencies. This presupposes an official right to ignore the legal history of the historic Briton/Celtic identity of Cornwall and the indigenous Cornish people for socio-economic advantage.
(Note:- There are a thousand years of Cornish history both before and after: “King Athelstan (925-940AD) set out on an expedition against the Britons of Cornwall……In the end the Britons of Cornwall were compelled to accept the river Tamar as their boundary”. (‘Anglo-Saxon England’ by F.M. Stenton F.B.A., Professor of Modern History in the University of Reading, Oxford, Clarendon Press, 1947, page 337). (Note:- The National Geographic Map of March 2006, highlights Cornwall under the title “The Celtic Fringe”, “An area of Celtic Culture”).
2. The inclusion of the Cornish within the English 2011 Census Form rather than providing a separate Duchy of Cornwall form after over ten years of submissions to the Office for National Statistics. This presupposes an official right to abuse power by ignoring the historic Celtic identity of Cornwall and the Cornish for socio-economic advantage.
3. The decision of the government of the United Kingdom to exclude the Cornish from the Framework Convention for the Protection of National Minorities after over ten years of submissions to the Home Office and the Department for Communities and Local Government. This presupposes an official right to ignore the historic Celtic identity of Cornwall and the Cornish for socio-economic advantage.
4. The Crown Estate Act 1961, section 4, “Grants for public or charitable purposes” excludes Cornwall. Presupposes a right to exercise direct or indirect racial discrimination for socio-economic advantage.
5. The National Heritage Act 1984., section 33B. By this Act English Heritage claims pre-England monuments as English and the associated intellectual property rights. Presupposes a right to exercise direct or indirect racial discrimination for cultural and socio-economic advantage.
6. The provision for Dukes of Cornwall to exercise “Official Acts” in Cornwall under the Duchy of Cornwall Charters. (Rowe v. Brenton of 1828, (8B & C737) Concanen edition 1830 Appendix 9; 10 and 11). Presupposes a right to exercise direct or indirect racial discrimination for socio-economic advantage.
7. Duchy of Cornwall Management Act 1982, section 8 – “The Treasury shall have regard to the interests of both present and future Dukes of Cornwall or possessors of the Duchy”. Presupposes a right to exercise direct or indirect racial discrimination for socio-economic advantage.
8. Duchy of Cornwall Management Act 1863, section 37, (part) “Possessions of the Duchy of Cornwall shall include regalities, land, mineral rights, possessions whether in possession or reversion, parcel or reputed or claimed to be parcel of the Duchy of Cornwall or annexed to the same”. Presupposes a right to exercise direct or indirect racial discrimination for socio-economic advantage.
9. Provisions in the following Acts providing exemptions for the Duke/Duchy of Cornwall:
Crown Proceedings Act 1947, sections 38 (3) and 40 (2g); Limitation Act 1980, section 37; The Supreme Court Act 1981, section 120; Cornwall County Council Act 1984, section 50; Treasure Act 1996 & S.I. 2666/2002; Competition Act 1998, section 73; Tamar Bridge Act 1998,section 41; Freedom of Information Act section 37; Land Registration Act 2002, section 84 (note,135); Commonhold and Leasehold Reform Act 2002, section 108 & 172; Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004, section 84, & Schedule 3 (3); Companies Act 2006, sections 1025 to 1032 Presuppose a right to create socio-economic inequalities for racial advantage.
