who would arrest the queen?
It probably won’t make front page news anytime soon thoughPosted 4 years ago
It’d be pretty frickin tricky to enforce…
the Queen is basically Gangster no.1,
what with effectively owning The Army, The Secret Services, The Police, The Government, The Crown Prosecution Service, HMRC, The Church of England etc etc, along with ruling the commonwealth and a fair few bountiful offshore tax havens, not to mention a wealth of shares in other business concerns… she even owns all UK citizens from birth, hence the birth certificate.
Behind her frail exterior hides a pretty convincing case for all out global badass, bling n all.

Ding ding ding ding freeman of the land nonsense alert!
I want to go beyond that and be a free animal, frolicking about the countryside in the buff, foraging for natures bounty n that
Anyhow, don’t blame me when you wake up in the middle of the night and your pancreas is missing, cos Lizzzzz felt a bit peckish 😀Posted 4 years agobencooperMember

Yeah, plus she owns all the stamps. Licking a stamp is technically treason, you know. And she owns all the money, cos it’s got her picture on it.
She only owns half of me, though – I’m dual national.Posted 4 years ago
Molgrips not really .Charles the first was defeated detained and executed but Parliament really fudged the what ” is our authority to arrest point .” The French threw over their entire legal system to kill their king.
I cannot think of an occasion where a monarch has been arrested. By definition an arrest is either within the law or it is not an arrest. I suppose the International Criminal Court could issue a warent for Liz but at that level it is really starting to blur the boundaries between law and diplomacy and would require an agent external to the UK to execute it.

iirc UK law does not apply to the queen, all powers are granted by the monarch and cascade down from there.
It is just the way the law is written and developed centuries ago, and hasn’t been updated to take into account modern principles like “no one is above the law”.
There was some case a few years ago, where a member of her staff who was fired had no access to the normal legal procedures due to the monarchs status in law.Posted 4 years agoD0NKSubscriber

whilst technically I don’t think she actually owns these, it did occur to me as head/figure head of some of these institutions, if they did something really naughty could the queen take some of the blame?Posted 4 years agoJunkyardMember

Read some History books though it usually involved the tower and some family infighting as they decide who god had really chosen 😉
Its unlikely to ever happen and even if guilty it would be abdication etc to protect the nationPosted 4 years agoBigDummySubscriber
I am reasonably sure that the Queen is quite effectively protected from being arrested on the basis of a warrant issued by an imaginary court convened by conspiracy theorists, fantasists and psychiatric patients.
I’m no monarchist, but I’d trip one of these loons over to stop him grabbing her. Heavens, I might even do it to stop Cameron being hauled away in chains.

I’m assuming the article is by David Compan, right?
How did you guess?

Given the historical development of the Sovereign as the ‘Fount of Justice’, civil and criminal proceedings cannot be taken against the Sovereign as a person under UK law. Acts of Parliament do not apply to The Queen in her personal capacity unless they are expressly stated to do so.
However, The Queen is careful to ensure that all her activities in her personal capacity are carried out in strict accordance with the law.
Under the Crown Proceedings Act (1947), civil proceedings can be taken against the Crown in its public capacity (this usually means proceedings against government departments and agencies, as the elected Government governs in The Queen’s name).
In the case of European Union law, laws are enforced in the United Kingdom through the United Kingdom’s national courts. There is therefore no machinery by which European law can be applied to The Queen in her personal capacity.
However, it makes no difference that there is no such mechanism, as The Queen will in any event scrupulously observe the requirements of EU law.
As a national of the United Kingdom, The Queen is a citizen of the European Union, but that in no way affects her prerogatives and responsibilities as the Sovereign.
So the law does not apply to the queen, even EU law as they would be applied through UK courts.Posted 4 years ago
