Sold, Denied, Delayed - Magna Carta Betrayed

About this Event

In Conversation with Dr David Starkey, TV Historian, with Lucy Harris, Director of Leavers of Britain and Dr Edmund Fordham, Brexit Party Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for Bury St Edmunds. An event produced by Julie Pierce, Leavers of Suffolk.

Constitutional process has been side-stepped, twisted and ravaged. The last Parliamentary sitting cost the taxpayer upwards of £1.5bn, yet passed no significant legislation. All to delay, block and attempt to overturn, a decision to leave the EU of the largest electoral mandate in our history. Edmund Fordham and Lucy Harris will be asking David Starkey the significance of the damage to the constitution, and why questions of political power in the country, between the Monarch, Parliament, Government, the Judiciary and the People, that remained unanswered from over three centuries ago, have now resurfaced.

Government wrestled with a Parliament hostile to the people’s wishes and that refused to face the voters in a General Election. Both have lost the trust of the majority of the electorate, but claim they know better and call on the ’national interest’ to justify authoritarian behaviour. The Supreme Court has become the highest political and legal power in the land. The role and existence of the House of Lords and Monarchy has come under serious scrutiny. The very notions of democracy and freedom, once central to our national politics have increasingly been cast aside, or redefined to apply to a narrow class of people.

How can we mend the constitution and regain some national solidarity and belief in Government, Parliament and democracy? Come along, ask questions and get answers to these momentous issues from the leading constitutional historian of our time.
