    • I came across this discussion recently and just wanted to give my experience of A Shade Greener that may help others regarding their boiler finance agreement.
       
      We had a 10yr  finance contract for a boiler fitted July 2015.
       
      After a summer of discontent with ASG I discovered that if you have paid HALF the agreement or more you can legally return the boiler to them at no cost to yourself. I've just returned mine the feeling is liberating.
       
      It all started mid summer during lockdown when they refused to service our boiler because we didn't have a loft ladder or flooring installed despite the fact AS installed the boiler. and had previosuly serviced it without issue for 4yrs. After consulting with an independent installer I was informed that if this was the case then ASG had breached building regulations,  this was duly reported to Gas Safe to investigate and even then ASG refused to accept blame and repeatedly said it was my problem. Anyway Gas Safe found them in breach of building regs and a compromise was reached.
       
      A month later and ASG attended to service our boiler but in the process left the boiler unusuable as it kept losing pressure not to mention they had damaged the filling loop in the process which they said was my responsibilty not theres and would charge me to repair, so generous of them! Soon after reporting the fault I got a letter stating it was time we arranged a powerflush on our heating system which they make you do after 5 years even though there's nothing in the contract that states this. Coincidence?
       
      After a few heated exchanges with ASG (pardon the pun) I decided to pull the plug and cancel our agreement.
       
      The boiler was removed and replaced by a reputable installer,  and the old boiler was returned to ASG thus ending our contract with them. What's mad is I saved in excess of £1000 in the long run and got a new boiler with a brand new 12yr warranty. 
       
      You only have to look at TrustPilot to get an idea of what this company is like.

    • Dazza a few months ago I discovered a good friend of mine who had ten debts with cards and catalogues which he was slavishly paying off at detriment to his own family quality of life, and I mean hardship, not just absence of second holidays or flat screen TV's.
       
      I wrote to all his creditors asking for supporting documents and not one could provide any material that would allow them to enforce the debt.
       
      As a result he stopped paying and they have been unable to do anything, one even admitted it was unenforceable.
       
      If circumstances have got to the point where you are finding it unmanageable you must ask yourself why you feel the need to pay.  I guarantee you that these companies have built bad debt into their business model and no one over there is losing any sleep over your debt to them!  They will see you as a victim and cash cow and they will be reluctant to discuss final offers, only ways to keep you paying with threats of court action or seizing your assets if you have any.
       
      They are not your friends and you owe them no loyalty or moral duty, that must remain only for yourself and your family.
       
      If it was me I would send them all a CCA request.   I would bet that not one will provide the correct response and you can quite legally stop paying them until such time as they do provide a response.   Even when they do you should check back here as they mostly send dodgy photo copies or generic rubbish that has no connection with your supposed debt.
       
      The money you are paying them should, as far as you are able, be put to a savings account for yourself and as a means of paying of one of these fleecers should they ever manage to get to to the point of a successful court judgement.  After six years they will not be able to start court action and that money will then become yours.
       
      They will of course pursue you for the funds and pass your file around various departments of their business and out to third parties.
       
      Your response is that you should treat it as a hobby.  I have numerous files of correspondence each faithfully organised showing the various letters from different DCA;s , solicitors etc with a mix of threats, inducements and offers.   It is like my stamp collection and I show it to anyone who is interested!

I've been reading about lawful rebellion where you can basically reject the Gov. and make a stand about how they are ripping off Taxes - plenty to argue there.

 

But I just wanted a second opinion from a site I know and trust, has anyone read about this? I can post link to where I've been reading but it is all on You-Tube.

 

Cheers

Help me to help others!

Oooh yes.

 

Simply because there are a few handfuls of nutters who believe him doesn't make it right, though. The danger is if too many start to follow him, after all, Hitler started small too! ;-)

Link? Sorry, not about to trawl through the whole thing, it makes me itch and I'll have to go and have another shower. :razz:

 

In all seriousness: It is normal human behaviour to try and make sense out of chaos. It is normal to try and explain everything so our lives will not feel so random. But "facts" can be bent and twisted and ignored or re-arranged in such a manner that I could probably write a convincing argument to show you that the moon IS made of cheese after all, that you should worship me as a goddess (well, many already do :-D) and that sending me large amounts of money will ensure you are blessed. If you want to believe, you will.

 

But in the end, you have to exercise your own common sense, and one of the overwhelming facts is this one: If you have a logical explanation and a far-fetched one, most of the time, it's the logical one which is correct.

Hey there,

I came to this site because of a dodgy landlord, and have been reading threads for about a month. I came across this thread today, and spotted "freeman"!

Anyway, my partner is very heavily involved with this "Freeman-on-land" movement and I would suggest that you look at www.tpuc.org which explains things in more detail and has external links.

 

Yes, David Icke is part of this sub-culture but he is not the main part of it. David Icke comes out with a lot of rubbish and nutsy stuff but his heart is in the right place and about 10% of what he says is really interesting. But I certainly would not use the fact that someone told you he's involved to put you off researching this for yourself.

 

Personally, I do not understand it all! It was a lot to do with common law and the number of "Acts" and "statutes" are not actually "law".

It also has to do with the fact that you are a "human being" and that your person is your "legal entity" like a business. If your name is all in capitals (or just your surname or if they call you Mr/s) then they are addressing your fictional person JOHN SMITH. However, you can call your self John of the Smith family, which is a way of addressing the human being.

 

Anyway, as I say, I don't know a lot about it but check out that website for lots of articles on it all.

And it's not just about not paying taxes - it's more about disagreeing to fund a corrupt, bankrupt government that starts illegal wars :-|

The freeman movement has nothing to do with David icke.

 

Actually one of the main people in this awakening is Robert Arthur Meynard

and Mary Elizabeth Croft (her free ebook is amazing)

www.freedom-school.com/mary_elizabeth_croft.pdf

google search these people and it may change you. It did with me, i also discovered my rights when dealing with the police.

Ignorance is slavery.

peace.

Nope. Ignorance, as the saying goes, is bliss. :-)

My advice is based on my opinion, my experience and my education. I do not profess to be an expert in any given field. If requested, I will provide a link where possible to relevant legislation or guidance, so that advice provided can be confirmed and I do encourage others to follow those links for their own peace of mind. Sometimes my advice is not what people necesserily want to hear, but I will advise on facts as I know them - although it may not be what a person wants to hear it helps to know where you stand. Advice on the internet should never be a substitute for advice from your own legal professional with full knowledge of your individual case.

 

 

Please do not seek, offer or produce advice on a consumer issue via private message; it is against

Sorry, Robert, but like yourself I've only really watched the YouTube (and Google) vids.

 

It's a fascinating subject, and becoming a Freeman-on-the-Land is something that's being done by Brits, Americans, Australians and especially Canadians.

 

I can't really add much that I'm sure of, but I'm at least certain that some people obviously take this very seriously, and do deal with authority in a different way to most of us and sometimes achieve unlikely sounding results.

 

The thing is, it appears that many different individuals have independently arrived at the same conclusion i.e. that we are all the property of the state (from registration of birth) and subject to 'Admiralty' law, but can declare ourselves free from state interference (or assistance) and be subject only to 'Common' law.

 

I'd hope there might be more genuine interest in this subject instead of (or as well as) the David Icke bashing, so there's a link below where you can find the main proponents giving us their thoughts and experiences. Robert Menard's 'Bursting Bubbles...' is both interesting and entertaining, and Mark McMurtrie's videos are well worth watching:

 

Common Law - Videos & Seminars : CommonLaw

 

Please have a watch of some of the material if you've got the time - and get back to the forum with your opinions, please. There's no recognised authority on this subject, just a bunch people doing their own thing, and it's hard to pin down as an exact science. Are we all subject to 'Admiralty' law? Is this country bankrupt? Is a birth certificate proof of the state's ownership of us? Can we really opt out? Not be subject to any law other than common law? These are the questions raised, and I wouldn't mind some firm answers. Over to you, Caggers.

One should of course, be aware that it is lawful to kill a Welshman within Chester's city walls during the hours of darkness.
Is it Welshmen? I thought it was Scots? Oooops. :shock:

I could give you firm answers, but would you listen, or keep on thinking that wishes = reality?

 

Long and short is: Can we really opt out? Answer: NO. No. No. ad infintinum and ad nauseam.*

 

*caveat: If you're rich enough, then you can buy yourself an island and exile yourself there and obey only your own law. Be prepared however for the fact that if you ever want to get out of it, then the prevalent laws will still apply and woe if your passport has ran out for example.

Scottishness doesnt count as a "race", although the haggis is of course, the chieftain of the Pudding race.

 

How do you start a pudding race?

 

Sago.

No... it's definitely Welshmen, but only those found within the city walls after midnight on a Saturday night. They can party on down and get bladdered right up to and including midnight... after that it's the gibbet!:p

Ah, my mistake, it's in York you can kill Scots (but only if they're carrying a bow and arrow).

 

Whilst googling this, I did find a compelling argument for the Freeman of the land though:

 

In London, Freemen are allowed to take a flock of sheep across London Bridge without being charged a toll; they are also allowed to drive geese down Cheapside.
That's got to make it all worth it. :-D

It is York where that is still legal, but I seem to recall that the victim must be wearing a kilt, and you are correct about the bow and arrow
