Oath of Allegiance

Latest version of 1868 including Amendments:

"I  [name]  swear by almighty god, that on becoming a British Citizen, I will be faithful and bear true allegiance to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the second, her heirs and successors according to the law.   

I will give my loyalty to the United Kingdom and respect its rights and freedoms. I will uphold its democratic values. I will observe its laws faithfully and fulfil my duties and obligations as a British citizen.’’

Also can be termed as a sworn Solemn Affirmation.


The principle problem with the above [that was attempted to be addressed by the various amendments] is the issue with almighty god being included, [in a pledge of national commitment.]

[An example of a low grade bureaucratic thinking without any intellectual process involved] – See [Historical empire administration et al.]

Where the first sentence excludes or alienates or challenges an individual person’s faith, beliefs or fundamental philosophy of belief of life – Atheists, Agnostics, Hindus, Spiritualists or the simple problem of language and translation [Where the word god can be viewed as the Christian god rather than the word in English to describe the theory of ‘The divine entity.’] – It becomes impossible to imagine that anyone [apart from the already committed] could carry on into sentence number two with any chance of a wholehearted desire to try to commit to loyalty to Britain.

It is also important to note that as a Monarchy [under the historical benefits of the standards and values that Monarchy attempts to bestow by example and protocol] that all of her Majesties [The Crown] citizens are in fact her ‘Subjects’ afforded privileges and freedoms. This is important in that the [Crown Value] of the British Monarchy sets as her ‘subjects’ the highest standards of conduct around the world [and beyond] by example and protocol, that supersedes the standards of being a citizen in comparison.

An oath should contain within it the words and meanings to connect the oath taker to the meanings and objectives that speak to [if not reach in] and to connect to the fundamental soul of the oath taker. To this end and to address the above issues I submit the following modern and upgraded British Oath of Allegiance.

The British Oath of Allegiance – 2018 –

‘’I  [name]  sincerely pledge, that by being included and becoming a British Subject/Citizen, I commit myself to the sanctity, sovereignty and good health of the Island of Great Britain, The Nation States of The United Kingdom and The Commonwealth.   

I pledge allegiance to the Crown of Her Majesty [Queen Elizabeth the second] and her heirs and successors according to the law of Her Majesties Government [apart from laws that deny rights and freedom*] and to be true and show allegiance to Britain with my good manner, integrity and honour as my conduct.

I will be loyal to Britain and British values and freedoms and to the values of democracy in Britain.

I will be loyal to the good British manners of politeness, respect and to kindness in spirit to the good spirit of all people kind.

I will abide by the laws of Britain and fulfil my obligations as a committed productive subject/citizen under / in democracy [mindful of my good conduct in all other sovereign locations] as I expect those of others.

I will endeavour to live my life with a good mind, heart and soul dedicated to self improvement in the pursuit of peace, tranquillity and happiness for the benefit of all of Britain as I do for my family and my family to come.

This I pledge to Great Britain, Her Majesty and myself.’’
