Meet Your Strawman!
This is a great little animation that explains how your strawman came into being, and why you can safely resist paying demands made of him/her. Further research is required, but as a first step, say no, politely and firmly, and ask them questions. They grind to a halt when someone who isn't Borg retaliates.
This is timely as I have just this morning sent off a new letter to HMRC explaining the same thing. Today I received a letter from them demanding that I pay them money (or else!), and they quoted several sections of two statutes, namely, Income and Corporation Taxes Act 1988 and the Financial Act 2008. I gently explained that their statutes are less than meaningless to me as I have entered Lawful Rebellion. I explained that Lawful Rebellion was an obligation on every sovereign, and not a lifestyle choice. I also asked them (again) to verify their claim, I asked them (again) to validate their claim, and I asked them (again) to confirm that they had not coerced me into violating domestic and international laws by demanding that I contribute finances to two illegal invasions. I will let you know how that turns out.
Tip of the beret to TBY for sending me the link to this instructive and educational video. TBY is a regular commenter here, and stalwart of this fantastic campaign group.
