As AC said....
"The bill of rights, and constitution, don't exist to enumerate the rights of the people, but rather to impose limits on the power of the government.
"The power of the government flows from the people, rather than the government deigning to 'allow' these rights."
The Magna Carta (whichever edition) was written to curb the King's power, so the Barons had more 'rights'. Note that the peasants, the plebs in current parlance, or citizens in NuLabourSpeak, were kept in their suitable place and little considered.
NuLabour is very happy to promote the misunderstanding that a Bill of Rights is about what a citizen may and may not do, rather than it is to keep government from being oppressive and arbitrary.
Are El Reg readers aware that NuLabour,a fully paid up lackey of the EUSSR, wants to include, as one of the clauses in this so-called Bill of Rights, a clause that the government can override any clause, including those made to protection the 'citizens' rights, whenever it wishes and for any or no reason?
Mine's the one with a one one-way ticket out of this EUSSR satellite in the pocket.
