* To challenge any and all attempts to abrogate,
dilute, discard, diminish, subvert, compromise or
undermine by any means whatsoever the constitution of
this sovereign nation.
* To ignite the smouldering anger in the United
Kingdom against the destruction of our sovereignty and
nationality, our rights and liberties, our freedoms and
customs, our lifestyles and traditions, our values and
way of thinking, our livelihoods and commercial
practices, our culture and economy, our ability to
legislate and defend ourselves, and our legal system -
all of which are threatened by the uninvited imposition
of laws, directives, regulations and judicial decisions
by the European Union and its institutions.

accountability may one day be equally applied to them.
The Views of Leolin Price, QC
"How did we ever come
voluntarily to join the most selfish, protectionist,
inward-looking political body the world has ever seen?
It steadfastly fails to define any benefits it might
have claimed for itself, and defiantly ignores the
injury and damage it does."
"I am sure the time is ripe for
a well-devised assault on all who by design or ignorance
or thoughtlessness have already made great steps towards
overthrowing our constitution. Cleverness and
commonsense and balance and money are all needed."
"What is needed is the support
and enthusiasm of…people who are…already alert to
the constitutional and political disasters which lie
ahead if misguided bureaucrats and governments and
supporting deceivers have their way."
Who We Are
The Magna Carta Society was formed in
1999 by a small group of British subjects concerned with
reversing the helter-skelter destruction of our
birthright and restoring the constitution of the United
Kingdom in accordance with common law, and as laid down
in Magna Carta and in the Declaration and Bill of
We are not lawyers. We represent no
political party. Most founder members belong to no
political party. We speak merely for ourselves and
others of like mind.
Like it or not, we find ourselves
representing a growing proportion of the UK population -
some opinion polls suggest it is now almost half - who
currently support the proposition that the United
Kingdom should leave the European Union. Many thousands
do so from the bitter experience of seeing their
livelihoods and way of life destroyed for no good reason
other than to satisfy the whims and egos of politicians,
and without any discernible counter-balancing benefits.
Every one of those, perhaps nearly 20
million, people is currently disenfranchised, since no
major political party offers a commitment to take the UK
out of the EU in its current or prospective manifesto.
Neither has any political party with a realistic
prospect of forming an administration ever made such a
commitment since the passage of the European Communities
So much of the EU’s erosion of our
rights has taken place via the skilled use of its
inexorable, stealthy, salami-slicing techniques that
these momentous issues have never been put to the test.
Which is precisely why we intend to test them now.
