“The Crown has always been under a positive duty to protect the spirit of British liberty. That obligation became especially compelling once universal suffrage permitted every elected government to identify its own absolutist pretensions with the will of the people. Today, the allegedly enlightened despotism holding sway over the British peoples is even more insidious. In the name of universal human rights, their historic claim to secure possession of an ethnic homeland has been cast into doubt, both ‘at home’ and in the old white settler Dominions.”
