PSSST! Wanna Buy A Statute?

I recently learned that new statutes are evaluated by the money men before they are shovelled through parliament.

If you ever thought that statutes were enacted for the sake of justice, I hope I will have busted that particular myth by the time you finish reading this entry.

How does it work?

Set your faces to stun, while I elaborate.

Preamble: the United Kingdom is bankrupt. She has been for 140 years. We have been trading thanks to something similar to the Americans' Chapter 11. Which means, in effect, that we can continue to trade but any profits realised must be used to repay debt. It is unlikely that we will ever emerge from Chapter 11 bankruptcy, but we (read HMG) have to find ways to raise cash money. Knights on white chargers are as rare as hens teeth, so we get new statutes instead. Lots and lots of 'em.

So, the problem in one word = money.

The solution, also in one word = legislation.

Every piece of legislation shat out of parliament carries a punishment, usually in the form of a fine. (It also has to have a remedy, more on remedies another day). In many cases, they also bring in a lot of front-money when they cause people or industry to apply for licenses and such. Think of Scotlands new licensing laws and the average cost to alcohol retailers, or, this new mountain of cash the CRB legislation will squeeze out of ordinary parents, who will be forced to lay out £100 for a background check just so that they can continue running little Chelsea to girl guides with her friends in the car.

Here is the scam, in a nutshell.

First, we have to come up with a piece of legislation that the bankers (read Bank of England) like the look of. So our government guys get weaving. They put together a synopsis of the new statute, along with a projection of its future earnings, then they sit down over coffee and biscuits over at Threadneedle Street. Then the haggling begins: the BoE look at the numbers and advance the government whatever they agree the new statute will generate. The government take the £4 billion, £7 billion or £10 billion, and repay some debt. As the fines roll in they are sent to those 18 shady Directors at the BoE. Everyone is happy.

It's a sales pitch. In much the same way that your future earnings are projected (see earlier posts for more details on our Birth Bonds), the bank allows the government to borrow money based on future earnings of the legislation pitched to them. Deal done, the g-men hurry off back to the Treasury to give them the good news. Next, the statute is suggested, drafted, discussed in the HoC, passed up to the HoL for discussion, debate and amendments, back down to the lower house for a vote, then off it goes to Becky for her assent/rubber stamp.

Result! HMG now has a new means of extorting money from the great unwashed.

Need an example? Look no further than the Road Traffic Act 1988. This Act has generated billions and billions of £££'s for the Chancellor over the last 21 years. And it will go on leeching cash from your pocket to go into this wasteful governments grasping mitts. Unless, of course, you do what I did, and let them know that you will no longer observe, adhere to, or take notice of statutes that were neither written for human beings and which weren't written for people who live on dry land.

Remember: all Statutes, Acts, Bills and Statutory Instruments are Laws-of-the-Water. They do not apply to you or me. Unless, of course, you actually do live, work and play on the sea.

Shocked? Disgusted? Gob-smacked?

Me too.

As unbelievable as it sounds, it makes sense.

Why else would they need to fine you for leaving your bin out too long? For smoking in a pub? For driving a little over the speed limit? For parking your car on some poxy yellow lines?

None of these "crimes*" harm, cause injury or loss to another human. But they do ensure a steady supply of your money to their bank account.

*There are only four basic crimes, and they are steeped in common sense: do not hurt, do not kill, do not steal, and do not defraud. Anything else is mere commentary.

Statutes are superfluous. They exist only to milk you, the cash cow.

My teats have withstood enough punishment, and I say, "No more!".

Unusually, I have not supported this entry with any evidence. The reason for this is that I have only found one source, so far. I am not happy until I have found two, three or more sources that I can cross-check. I'll be digging deeper and will find, and provide, something credible for you to inspect. I just wanted to share this with you to demonstrate just how hoodwinked we all are. The truth is a lie, and it brings me no pleasure to share these awful things with you, but I am obligated (by my conscience) to disseminate.

Nothing, absolutely nothing, surprises me anymore.

This has long since ceased to be a mere rabbit hole.

This deception is deeper than the fucking Kimberley Mine.

What you say Capt'n, about these money making statutes, is known to all of us but for some strange reason we are seduced by the snake oil salesmen/women of today.

After a statute has been through the merry-go-round of internal politics (money making ideas) it is then sold to the public as being detremental to their own wellbing and we, Joe Public, fall for it, hook, line and sinker. But still we, Joe Public, think, something smells iffy about this new statute amongst many statutes, but think Ahh well, such is life.

Still, all the statutes in the world won't pay off our massive debts here in the UK, we will sleepwalk our way through life as usual, won't we?

Thanks for the comment TBY.

No, they wont pay off our debt but we will keep on paying HMG, one way or another.

They have two traits that stand out, and neither of them complement the other: they are greedy AND wasteful.

Not good.

Not good at all.

Bang on post Ranty

I've been looking into law and the freeman thing for a few months now and seem to find the same as you and others,coruption coruption coruption, with a side order of lies.

Made me wonder how we got to this point.

Just watched a documentary called "The money masters" things make more sense now and not in a good way.

If you havn't already, give it a wirl (three and a half hours mind)

Good luck
God speed

Captain Ranty said...

Thanks LTW.

I will check out the vid.

I think we got here by either a) not paying attention or b) assuming that our "betters" would look out for us.

It seems they couldnt give a shit about you or me.

And that makes what I am doing so much easier.

Be well,

hey there,

watched all Menard , and Shrout ,money masters etc and went to constitution conference about 6 months ago ,saw john harris talk (not v impressive)and gerrish; still waiting to substantiate everything these guys say is 'true' , I have struggled to corroborate it to be honest, I have got into long email conversations with chief registrars about birth bond idea - without anything that supports it coming out. Really what is needed is a proper book on the subject ? tons of law reading ??

interestingly watched that pants on the gogglebox just like you and laughed at 'wisdom of the crowds' ended up googling 'stupidity of the crowds'

anyway we may at the same point on the river going in the same direction - so combining forces may be wise.

my email is

Hi Anon,

I too have watched Rob:Menard and the Winston Shrout videos. Gerrish is closer to the truth than people imagine. His work uncovering that nest of Common Purpose vipers is inspiring. I have also watched John, (just recently I watched his Edge TV interview) and I have mixed feelings. It appears (to me) that he has had a "Road to Damascus" moment and is struggling with himself.

Canada, of course, is a little different to the UK. Canadians have successfully accessed their Birth Bonds, and their numbers are growing. The controllers in the UK have buried the secrets deep so we have to keep digging. The more the merrier.

You might want to join the FMOTL Forum. There are some super-dedicated peeps on there.

Remember though that all this only really kicked off in January so it is early days yet. I think we have come a long way these last 9 months.

If you, (or anyone else) wants to write to me I have now set up an email address: captainranty at btinternet dot com

Whatever you do, please remember to question everything.

The "truth" we have been told over the years, is a magnificent lie.

It's all a joke. Not one of the funny ones, one of the nasty, spiteful ones. The sort that make you hiss rather than laugh.

We fell for it.

Even so. It's all a joke.

All too true, the piece of legislation which really proves this scandalous behaviour is fining you for NOT using your own mode of transport. I have been issued with a fixed penalty notice for not declaring my vehicle of the road (not filling in a SORN). The said vehicle has actually been sitting in a garage but unbeknown to me this is an act most heinous and i'm expected to cough up the readies... me thinks not.

Captain Ranty said...

Hi Jem,

You aren't playing ball!

You are supposed to pay up like a good citizen.

Well done for saying NO!, it works every time.
