Tax protestors - British style

Postby The Dog » Tue Sep 28, 2010 1:05 am

Until recently, I used to regard tax protestors as a quaint American form of idiocy.

However, as the link below proves, we now have our own form of idiots on this side of the Atlantic.

(Note: Council tax is a tax levied for the funding of local government. Despite the title of the video, Cwmbran is actually in Wales).

The amusing thing is that having declared "victory" the video displays a letter which clearly shows that a liability order was awarded and threatening to send in bailiffs.

I can't wait until these people start claiming their rights under the Uniform Commercial Code.

I'm waiting for the 'Restore Anglica Plan" where they're going to return to the Constitution as existed in 1065.

They do it in Canada all the time and it makes just as much sense there as it does here, except for the puzzled looks they get before being laughed out of court, since of course Canada doesn't have/doesn't recognize the UCC in a any form.
The fact that you sincerely and wholeheartedly believe that the “Law of Gravity” is unconstitutional and a violation of your sovereign rights, does not absolve you of adherence to it.

I mean, seriously. Using a "w" as a vowel? It positively screams "Wales."

There is of course Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania, but I take the point, I had underestimated your knowledge of Welsh.
