The Stone of Destiny (Gaelic – Lia Fàil) is so important to the power elite that it—instead of the crown jewels—was moved for safety during the WW2 German bombing raids on London.
[K]ing George VI (father of the current queen Elizabeth 2nd) secretly feared the loss was a bad omen and a sign his reign was coming to an end. How right he was!
The students were Ian Hamilton, Gavin Vernon, Alan Stuart, and Kay Matheson. They brought the Stone of Destiny back to Scotland and hid it safely. Allegedly, they took a fake sandstone block that had been used for practice, wrapped it in the Scottish national flag, and left it at Arbroath Abbey, where the English authorities found and retrieved it. This episode was enshrined in folklore as “The Pinch”.
Though often perceived as a student prank, Ian Hamilton has always emphasised that he did it for political reasons. When the police believed the Stone would make its way back to Scotland, the border between Scotland and England was closed—for the first time in 400 years. The culprits were never charged, as the crown prosecution service could never make the argument that the crown actually owned the Stone. Imprisonment would also have made political heroes of the students.
The history of the Stone is said to go back to Jacob’s Pillow, the stone he laid his head on to receive visions. It passed through many hands thereafter and eventually reached Scotland via Ireland.
Kings of ancient Dalriada and Scotland were crowned upon the Stone, until Edward 1st of England (“Longshanks”) took it as a war trophy to Westminster Abbey in 1296, where it lay undisturbed beneath the coronation chair of English and British monarchs until 1950.
There’s much evidence to suggest that the Stone of Destiny that the present queen was crowned on is a fake.
Cambray, in his Monuments Celtiques, claims to have seen the Stone when it bore the following Latin inscription:
“Ni fallat fatum, Scoti quocumque locatum invenient lapidiem, regnasse tenetur ibidem.” (“If the Destiny proves true, then the Scots are known to have been [K]ings wherever men find this Stone.”)
There is no such inscription on the official Stone.The original Stone’s weight was recorded as much heavier, and its colour darker than the alleged sandstone replica now on display in Edinburgh castle. Since its official symbolic return in 1996, Scotland has gained its own Parliament and almost voted for full independence in 2014. Fake Stone or not, maybe there’s some truth in ancient inscriptions and predictions. This version of the Stone will be sent to Westminster Abbey once again, whenever a future British monarch is to be crowned.
So, what does all this mean?
Elizabeth Windsor must have suspected the Stone returned from Arbroath Abbey in 1951 was a fake. Hence her insistence on no close-up television camera shots of her coronation in 1953.
If the Stone is a fake, it calls into question the validity of the whole of her coronation ceremony. Also, as there was never an Elizabeth the 1st of Scotland, she simply cannot be Elizabeth the 2nd of Scotland, only of England and Wales.
Hence the 1950’s Pillar Box Wars. When red pillar post boxes appeared on the streets of Scotland with the inscription “EIIR” on them, they were vandalised to the point of being firebombed. The inscription had to be changed to simply “the [C]rown of Scotland”.
The UK system of government at present is known as a “constitutional monarchy”. The house of Windsor are said to be powerless figureheads, but the reality is much different.
The oaths the queen made at her coronation were to her god, yet her lords and ladies, politicians, armed forces personnel, judges, policemen, etc., swear allegiance to her, not to her god, and more importantly, not to the People.
[Q]ueen Elizabeth II of England owns 1/6 of the planet’s surface. In Britain we walk on “the queen’s highway”, and up until recently, we were classed as her subjects, not citizens. Elizabeth is one of the wealthiest individuals on earth. Real wealth has always been vested in land ownership.
One example of this would be that all physical land in Canada—around 2.5 billion acres—is the property of Elizabeth Windsor. There is no provision in the Canada Act or in the Constitution Act of 1982 to amend it. All that Canadians may hold, in conformity with medieval and feudal law, is an interest in an estate in land. Freehold is tenure, not ownership. Freehold land is held, not owned.
Therefore, there is no doubt at all that Elizabeth and her family are high up on the ladder of power elites and far removed from the station of mere figureheads who do a good job for tourism. [P]rince Charles, the current heir to the throne, is well known for writing personal letters to elected politicians, hoping to change government policy to suit his own views on subjects such as architecture, alternative medicines and farming. These letters are known as the Black Spider Memos, due to the prince’s distinctive handwriting style on additional notes he adds in flowing black or red ink, once the main parts have been typed up.
As the monarchy is almost exempt from the Freedom of Information Act 2000, we cannot view what he’s written, or even whom he’s written it to. Up until recently, the verdict was that release of this information would undermine his neutrality as a future king. Since then, sweeping new changes have been proposed to the Freedom of Information Act which will give the royal family absolute protection from public scrutiny.
Very recently, however, the Supreme Court has ruled in favour of the Guardian newspaper who raised the action and the memos might be released. The palace is far from pleased and seeks a chance to make final amendments to them. We all know that means someone taking a black marker to blot out the more controversial parts.
So the only conclusion to draw is that there is direct royal intervention on government policy. That’s far removed from the usual line that the British royal family are powerless figureheads.
The prince of Wales also earns himself a whopping £19 million per year from his estates known as the duchy of Cornwall. Compared with other European so-called powerless royals, Charles is in a super league of his own.
How long the British public are prepared to put up with this class system left over from the Middle-Ages is anyone’s guess. The vast majority of UK citizens have no idea of the true wealth and power of their monarchy; most view them as harmless and glamorous celebs. “Carry On Up Windsor castle” as they say, in the true British tradition.
The last time the wider British public called the royal family into question was during the time of princess Diana’s death. The tipping point was never closer. Only then did an undercurrent of a possible peasants’ revolt arise. Only in that moment did the wind whisper, “revolution”. It was perhaps only a live television broadcast by the queen on the eve of Diana’s funeral that saved the day.
It’s high time her majesty’s subjects questioned the whole concept of the monarchy again. Lifting the blinkers from the eyes of the British public’s normally rose-tinted view of their royals won’t be easy. It’s our duty as Meritocrats to disseminate as much of the truth of their power as we can.
Unseating these pampered freeloaders from their golden thrones will unpin the cornerstones of the power elite’s ivory towers. The whole skeleton of cancerous connections will come crashing down around them. At the very least, they need to be rendered as harmless and politically neutral as they claim to be. We cannot fail to deliver Meritocracy to the next generation. Equal Opportunity for Every Child requires the abolishment of inheritance and privilege. That’s what the Grand Unseating will take, and nothing less.
