Ch.
IX. Legal Responsibility Universal

6. or 1.
English Practice,
Anglice Monarch
exempt from responsibility
in both shapes.
Consequence, doing political
evil in all
shapes the uninterrupted
occupation of
his life.

7.
Axion by which this
irresponsibility is expressed.
The King can
do no wrong.
Its senses
brought to view according
to the purpose to
be suited.
1. Impotence alledged.
In this sense false.
Not true, that he can
not do net and great
evil without
of self on instruments.
Counter signature is not
necessary to the mischief
in every case. Example.
Without it, he may do
whatever evil the whole
army can do: for he
has the command of it.

His instruments are
all in effect to this
purpose irresponsible.
1. Both Houses acting
in a body avowedly
so.
2. Individually he can
communicate irresponsibility
by penibility
by a pardon to any
and every body.

King.
