  1. If an unkown person came to your door asking for money with no ID or reason, would you just hand it over? If not, then why do we just believe what we're told about the law and legislation? Seems a bit backwards to me. I'm not in the legal profession and believe the law society, who create our laws, should be disbanded. I'm just an autodidact with a thirst for knowledge that other people seem to just accept blindly. Guess I'm lucky not to have been beaten with the stupid stick like some commenters on this wonderful forum! It's almost 4chan like -_- Blind faith is expensive. Ed
  2. To be honest, I know the answer as I've been studying law for about 5 years now. I just wanted to hear some crazy answers. Every time I ask people this question I get a different answer. I actually had a judge say to me "I make the law. If I say you jump, you jump." I just think it's sad that most people don't know the difference when it can, literally, mean the difference between spending years in jail. A great man once said: "If you don't know your rights, you have none."
  3. Breaking the law = Unlawful. Breaking a legislative rule = Illegal. Statutes and parliamentary acts are not laws. Next time you watch a debate in the house of commons, just listen carefully. Language is very important in law. Although the magistrates (who have no oath, and as a result, no power unless consented to) who have a vested interest, would rather you "didn't bother learning such silly stuff". I had hoped people "moderating" such a site would know the difference. But, yet again, the autodidacts seem to have more passion for the subject -_- Where did you get
  4. Well, aren't you just one happy banker? The difference is all down to statutes and acts and the legality thereof. The legal definition of a statute is "the legislative rule of a society" (society being defined as a group, or groups, of people giving consent to be governed). Policing by consent is a powerful thing. Don't let acquiescence of tacit consent rule your life Two questions I love to wind police up with: 1 - Am I under arrest? 2 - Am I free to go? If no is answered to both of the above questions, you're a slave according to any laws you subscribe to (UCC, statut
  5. You single word interjection is less than enlightening. How many years studying law did it take to come up with that? I can back up every single statement I make with hard fact. Can you? Ignorantia legis neminem excusat?
  6. I recently went on a business trip to Birmingham and had some brake fluid issues (no idea what... Im not a mechanic)... Hope this helps Birmingham Garage
  7. The legal definition of a "notice" is an offer. Re-reading any documents you have with a legal dictionary to hand will shock you! That being said, I believe you are right. It was personal information which was unduly disclosed.
  8. As I understand it, if a service isn't provided, charging is illegal. It's also the difference between "income" and "taxable income" which most people are blindly unaware of... It's saved me about £35k this year
  9. guardian.co.uk/business/2011/feb/18/barclays-bank-113m-corporation-tax Why are the banks allowed to get away with tax avoidance, yet we get jail time???
  10. I have studied several law books, tracking the progression of several words of interest. I can find no law or legal statute which redefines the word "driver". Obsfucation has crept in yet the meaning appears unchanged. Can someone point me in the right direction?
  11. Send it via recorded mail as these agencies have a tendancy to forget or misplace emails! Recorded / registered mail proves receipt. An email proves nothing.
  12. "I accepted the offer" You didn't need to accept anything. You were contracting with the enforcement agent. Nothing more. You can refuse to contract or be contracted with by simply stating you don't wish to give tacit consent at any stage. I think it's a little sad that most people aren't aware this is total perversion of the law. He who doesn't know his rights has none!
  13. A court "summons" is an invitation. Yes, if you don't attend they will arrest you, just remember it's an invitation so there is no need to be nervous! A tip: If an offer is made to pay off a debt, refusal constitutes payment. Learning the uniform commercial code (UCC) can help with this type of contracting
  14. I was recently injured while buying tickets from a machine at the station. The recepticle flap had a sharp metal edge and I cut my hand so badly I had to go to hospital and have it stitched up. - Before going to hospital I filed an accident report form so it was noted at the station. - I also informed the hospital how the injury was obtained. - I decided to take it further as the injury meant I had to take a week off work while it healed up (mostly, before leaving a huge scar) - I won hands down and got £1500 compensation due to faulty equipment causing injury, alarm or distress.
  15. I have been studying the law for a few years now and keep seeing certain phrases pop-up. One distinction I see time and time again is a differentiation between legal and lawful. IS there a difference, and if so what is it? Both Black's and Bouvier's law dictionary have many statements that differentiate between the two, but finding an actual answer seems to be harder than I expected
