Me too. In the end, not with a bang but with a whimper.
We have no reports of what actually went on but my guess is the plods went mob-handed for trouble, the social workers wrung their hands from the sidelines, the size and lack of passion of the crowd of supporters was disappointing
and so The Baron finally saw sense.
This might signal the end for this thread but it should serve as a cautionary reminder of exactly how far Freeman tactics get you, all of the;
phony liens and fee schedules,
thousands and thousands of wacky 100+ page emails to cops, MPs, the press,
reliance on a pick-and-chose smorgasbord of irrelevant legal precedents,
bluster and bluff over threats of violence
questionable if not outright illegal property ownership schemes
earnest appeals to the embassies of Tuvalu and Lesotho (to name but two)
spouting of dog Latin. (Ut a vita Baron!)
The answer is, inevitably, they get you booted out of your home.
Only after every other avenue short of this has been explored.
In The Baron's case victory in an undefended parking ticket appeal is hardly the best legal foundation upon which to base an attack on the entire structure of the legal framework in England and Wales as I'm sure that all 65.2 million or so occupants of these islands will agree.
I was struck today by the Baron's involvement in the formation of a limited company and the use to which that company was later put in Rekha Patel's maneuverings over the transfer of ownership of "Patel Cottage". He can't have had much - or indeed any - faith in the concept as he completely failed to employ it himself.
On the other hand I've been impressed with the various entities who found themselves having to deal with the likes of The Baron, Guy T, Tom C and Mr. Ebert. It shines through that eviction is the last card they want to play. The lengths they went to in efforts to seek a resolution short of eviction have shown that, far from being greedy, amoral, capricious and totally evil as the shit-for-brains on EFOTB would have you believe, they did their best to work out solutions short of eviction. The whole process wasn't rushed (some have taken years; Liz OTFW is still handing on in there) so they were hardly steamrollering over the opposition.
In each Footle case a combination of obstinacy, arrogance, skewed beliefs, willful blindness, a failure to negotiate and an over-reliance on the ill-advised counsel of others led to their downfall. Some of them advised each other with predictable results.
The Baron is the very latest to chance his arm with FMOTL nonsense but I'm sure he won't be the last. But I do hope others considering following his lead have second thoughts. I'm looking at you Noel Kennedy and the rag-tag of other followers who have prefixed their names with Baron although that said the nature and intentions of such individuals will be instantly recoginsed by TPTB. Ms. Patel won't be far behind either.
So it is written
So it is read
This is what happens
When you slip into the red
Without vexation, frivolity or ill-wills
Why not next time
Just pay your fecking bills?
Here then, some suitable songs on which to end kinda sums up the outcome in all of these cases.
He'll be possibly sleeping here.
And no, unlike some of the more irresponsible posters here, it's not bloody Rick Astley - I promise.
