I have just received a Council Tax demand for 2014/15!

(Interestingly the only mention of the unpaid amount in 2013 is a note: "YOUR INSTALLMENTS FOR 2014/15 DO NOT INCLUDE YOUR 2013/14 ACCOUNT BALANCE") (My underlining).

I will be writing back something along these lines ... actually ... probably this (unless I get more inspiration):

21st March 2014

Dear Sirs,

I write in response to the attached paperwork, which I return for your safe keeping.

 

The reason for this is because the paperwork comprises an unlawful demand for £48, which I have absolutely no obligation whatsoever to pay.

 

The reason is simple. Over 325 years ago, your demand – which is in the nature of a forfeiture from myself – was ruled “illegall & void” by the British Constitution’s Bill or Rights 1689, thus:

 

Grants of Forfeitures.

That all Grants and Promises of Fines and Forfeitures of particular persons before Conviction are illegall and void.

 ... see http://www.legislation.gov.uk/aep/WillandMarSess2/1/2/introduction


Thus, unless you can show that I have been convicted of anything related to your demand, I have no obligation to forfeit anything. Do I?

 

Obviously any ‘conviction’ you may subsequently obtain, is also “null & void” because your original demand is “illegall & void”, isn’t it?

 

You can “assess” as much as you like. You can “assess” until you are blue in the face. Carry on … don’t let me stop you “assessing”! But the late Lord Denning is on record as saying that “You can’t build something on nothing” which, translated to this instance, means “You can’t build a conviction for non-payment on no obligation in the first place”. Thus all of the “assessing” you do counts for … counts for … counts for … errr … counts for NOTHING … does it?

 

Unless, of course, you retain the ability to re-write history. That is something beyond most people – simply because history has happened, is solid fact, and cannot be changed.

 

Yours sincerely, without ill-will, vexation, or frivolity

(All their paperwork will be stapled to my letter "for their safe keeping"!)

Now ... let's see what happens.
