The Government is not a representation of the King. Hence a Police officer
is not entitled to enter upon a property unless the occupier provides a
licence to do so, irrespective of what the law says. If a court has issued
a warrant, that's not a warrant issued by the King. Unless the King issues
the warrant, it's not a free right. Laws are passed by parliament for the
people, not passed by parliament for the king. Hence the law only
preserves the rights and actions of the people, not protects the authority
of the king.
Government does not represent the KING, Government represents the
PEOPLE. End of Story! It's not exempt from legal proceedings :)

this judgement. Fortunately for the occupant, there is not right of waiver
for the defendant :)
