Meet your strawman

This is the first time I've tried to include a video on a post, so hopefully the link works.

Bystander on the Magistrate's Blog has previously talked about the people who seem to think that they are only bound by Common Law and not by statute. 

They are in a world of their own.  Some people have suggested that they are mentally ill, but they aren't.  The majority seem to be extreme examples of what happens when you know a little bit about a subject... just enough for that knowledge to be harmful.

The lady in the video asks for help.  The only advice I can give is to stop being so silly as to think the law doesn't apply to you.

I don't know who the police officer in the video is, but I must congratulate him on remaining so calm and polite when faced with such an onslaught of utter rubbish.

Incidentally, I have no idea what the title of this post means, but it seems important to people like the lady in the video, you can read more about their very interesting views by following this link.


  1. Fools on the loose. They terrify me. You might want to look up "Maxims of Law" by Charles A Weisman, which appears to be the (somewhat ephemeral) substance behind their collective delusions. Weisman, btw, was a racist Christian fundie.

    Personally, I like their insistance that because "Dun and Bradstreet" record the existence of an organisation and it has a (shock and horror) "Dun and Bradstreet number", that means it must be a commercial company. The MoJ, Parliament etc.

    That non-commercial organisations buy things therefore people might want to know how good they are at repaying you - the point of D&B, just doesn't occur to them. The wider concept that some government bodies, like most charities, might have a commercial arm to do things that the wider organisation can't is completely alien.

  2. Freemen of the Land are great.

    This Wiki article is also great:

    The section on their successes sums it up very nicely:

  4. Brilliant - Look at the point where teh lady says something about Admiralty law and the poor police officer is totally flummoxed. 'We're not on the sea' and then has to seriously keep himself form laughing out loud.

    THe poor lady is very misinformed, but at least the police officer will have a good story to laugh over.

  5. Here's a newspaper report about a defendant in court in Ireland who was banging on about a lot of the same obsucure concepts when charged with motoring offences. It's very funny:

Ched Evans

Before I begin, I will say that at around 4,500 words this is probably the longest blog I’ve ever posted but I think it’s all necessary to set the scene for this case and explain the background that has been largely ignored or airbrushed in the press. Despite its length, I have not attempted to include every little detail of either fact or law but have done my best to provide a balanced picture of the Ched Evans case, what happened and why the courts reached the decisions they did. There has been so much written about the Ched Evans case over the past weekend, much of it based on a very shaky grasp of the facts and law, that I decided I would read up about the case and weigh in (hopefully on a slightly firmer footing than most of the articles I’ve read so far).

Broadly speaking there seem to be three groups who have opinions on the case:
1.Sexual violence groups (including people describing themselves as “radical feminists”) who appear to take the view that the case is awful, the Court o…

How do the police decide whether to charge a suspect?

A question I’m often asked by clients (and in a roundabout way by people arriving at this blog using searches that ask the question in a variety of ways), is “how do the police decide whether to charge or take no further action (NFA)?”
What are the options?
Let’s have a quick think about what options are available to the police at the end of an investigation.
First, they can charge or report you for summons to attend court.  Charging means that you are given police bail and are required to attend court in person.  A summons is an order from the court for you to attend or for you to send a solicitor on your behalf.  In many cases where a person is summonsed, the court will allow you the option of entering a plea by post.
Second, you may be given a caution.  These can be a simple caution, which on the face of it is a warning not to be naughty in future, or it can be a conditional caution.  Conditions could include a requirement to pay for the cost of damage or compensation, etc.  Either…

Bid to prevent defendants knowing who accuses them of a crime

When I read The Trial by Kafka and Nineteen Eighty-Four by Orwell, I took them as warnings of how a bad justice system wrecks lives of those caught up in it. Sadly, some Members of Parliament and the House of Lords seem to view the books more as a guide to how they would like our Criminal Justice System to run. Today, I read of plans to hide the names of accusers and witnesses from defendants in a large number of cases. Victims of sexual offences, such as rape, have had the right to lifelong anonymity for many years now. This means that it is a criminal offence to publish information that will lead to a complainant being identified. A Bill currently being considered by Parliament would extend that anonymity to bar defendants and their lawyers knowing the name of the person accusing them. This would apply not only in sexual offences, as has been reported in the press, but also in violent offences.
The anonymity currently offered to victims of sexual offences is not total, the complainant…
