And so the Council Tax saga continues... Just to recap, I entered Lawful Rebellion way back in 2007 alongside my good friend John Harris. I decided not to pay any UK Council Tax (South Glos) and have not done so for the past 3 or 4 years. As far as I'm concerned it is an unlawful charge and is levied through deception and lies. Lawful Rebellion also means that I do not buy a TV Licence, pay speeding fines or Parking Tickets nor do I incriminate myself with any corporate Policy Officers or corporate "Court Officials". I just live by common law and basically wish to be left alone.
I wrote a searching letter to South Glos Council way back in 2009 politely asking a series of questions and reserving my right to transact with them subject to a satisfactory response . Quelle suprise, apart from a basic holding letter, here we are in 2011 and I've still heard nothing back from the morons. All I've had all the usual yadda yadda, threats, visits from Bailiffs and nasty letters - all ignored or sent back no contract return to sender I hasten to add - and here I am still standing and not in Prison! However, could that be set to change lol?
So, now that I'm no longer a UK property owner and live in the badlands of the USA maybe you'd think that they might finally have got the message - but no!!! Lo and behold lost in the spam folder between the Viagra and my long lost rich relatives from Nigeria. I receive an email from Mr S Nash - Corporate Recovery Team (notice the corporate alliterative Mr) with the following...
"I am contacting you regarding outstanding Council Tax; despite our requests and bailiff action you have not paid the balance in full or made proposals to clear the debt.
You are required to contact this office immediately to make arrangements to pay the balance in full.
Failure to do so will leave the Council with no alternative but to commence bankruptcy proceedings against you or make an application for your committal to prison for a period of up to 90 days.
I trust this action will not be necessary and look forward to hearing from you as a matter of urgency".
Mr S Nash - now hear this - it's quite simple... either take the time to satisfactorily answer the points raised in my letter of 2009 or do the other thing. And while you're at it Mr Nash, please please commence Bankruptcy proceedings against me and/or make an application for my committal to prison - I really do wish you good luck with that!!
