Boris Johnson's admirable setting -out of an army's relationship to it's country's political leadership is more than an expression of the disgrace this country's ruling political party is mired in by refusing any recognition of our army's last years in Iraq and Afghanistan, it illustrates the glaring need for a Constitution with a Head of State empowered to defend it wholly separate from and superior to the executive powers operated by the current political regime.
We do not owe our allegiance to the Labour party , we owe it to our country, its beliefs, culture, traditions, and the past actions that are the embodiment of these. The attempts by authoritorian regimes to identify party with country, to divert emotion associated with patriotism to support offered to political power groups , and the results of these , are in no need of rehearsal.
Where is our Constitution, where are our Judges who allowed the abolition of the Lord Chancellorship, and where is our Head of State?
