Act of Attainder - alternative to Impeachment of Bliar?

Discussion in 'The Intelligence Cell' started by Bravo2nothing, Dec 18, 2006.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Just looking through an artical on Impeachment and this little gem appeared. Any chance we could invoke something like this against Blair.

    The jist of it is civil liberties are nullified, no trial, sentenced to death and all monies given to the Crown. Nice.

    Ironic really that he hasn't already used it against someone else......
  2. Not sure this is the last word on the Attainder but:
    There's also the problem of getting a Labour Majority to vote it through....

    Nice idea though!
  3. I think the clue is in "The procedure was abolished in 1870"
  4. Still exists in English Common Law!

    :D :D :D
  5. What was abolished can easily be brought back onto the statute book. In fact when I eventually become supreme leader it is my intention to indict many New Labour Politicians for treason.

    Volunteers for the firing squads will receive a cash bonus.
  6. I volunteer for the firing squads but can we please aim a bit lower. Dont want them to die too quickly!
  7. The more rounds you use... the higher your bonus! Elegant or what?
  8. Think you've missed a trick, there. I for one would pay good money to personally send some of these b*stards to the bad fire.

    You could auction places on the detail off to the highest bidder and make a fortune.

    Just make sure you don't let the MoD procure the ammo. :D
