Affidavit Sent To David Cameron

Last month I sent the affidavit below to one David Cameron. As you will see, I permitted him 30 days to rebut otherwise the affidavit becomes Ranty's Law.

As expected, he did nothing. By doing nothing, he is in dishonour. No great shakes there.

But, my affidavit is now part of common law. An affidavit is the single most powerful document in existence. They have to be rebutted point for point in the time-frame offered.

So, as well as my NOUICOR (Notice of Understanding, Intent, and Claim of Right)-also unrebutted-I am as protected as a man can be. Purists (of the movement) will tell you that no paperwork is needed: you simply declare yourself to be a Freeman and off you go. I, however, feel more comfortable knowing that if I am ever hauled to court, I will have several bits of paper that turn my claims into hard evidence. In common law, (and I will claim common law jurisdiction upon entering the court), I have done everything correctly. I am, as the kids say, golden. My paperwork is the equivalent of a Kevlar vest. If HMRC continue with their games, I will get to test this out in court real soon. Between you and me, I am looking forward to it.

I have altered some details, but only to preserve my anonimity, for now. My autograph (never signature) is also missing. For additional potency, I added a one penny stamp and made my mark across it.

Affiant-Captain: of the Ranty family, X XXXX Street, XXXXXX, XXXXXXX, XXXXXshire, near [ABXX XXX]

Respondent-David Cameron, doing business as First Lord of The Treasury/Prime Minister, 10 Downing Street, London, near [SW1A 2AA]

Affiant is a private living sentient man.

Affiant is not Captain Ranty, Mr Captain Ranty, or any derivative thereof, or any other artificial entity/legal fiction.

Affiant is not liable to or for any Government statutes, rules and/or codes, including, without limitation, UNITED KINGDOM Codes and statutes and/or codes of any of Respondents’ political subdivisions.

Affiant is not liable for Captain Ranty or any artificial derivative thereof at anytime whatsoever.

Affiant is not liable for any public debts/liabilities at any time whatsoever.

Affiant is not a member of any society whatsoever and therefore the Affiant is not bound by any society’s statutes, rules or codes.

Affiant declares that he has entered Lawful Rebellion in accordance with Article 61 of Magna Carta.

Affiant permits Respondent thirty (30) days in which to rebut this affidavit point by point. Failure to do so will result in all of the foregoing to become Affiants law.

Dated 7th day of June in the year of our Lord two thousand and ten

Autograph of Affiant:

All I can do now is wait. I am prepared for battle.

I will faithfully report any skirmishes.

Repel all boarders, Cap'n ... and run up the flag! :)

May the Powers of Darkness rot the underpants of your foes Cap'n.

Captain Ranty said...

Thank you Caratacus.

That's a useful curse!


Billy Blofeld said...

Ooh I'm liking it....

Has anyone tried this defence in court yet - or would you be the first?

Captain Ranty said...


Affidavits are known as "statements of truth" and are more commonly used where a witness needs to give evidence in court but he/she would be in danger if they showed up in person.

I have not heard of anyone using them in this way before. I do know that many people have sent them in to both Brown and (now) Cameron.

The very worst thing you can do with an affidavit is ignore it.

My affidavit is not a defence, it is pre-emptive. It is an "offence" in the American football sense.


sobers said...

Please keep us updated with how this all goes. I am fascinated with what you write. Its either the biggest load of old rope ever, or the most important thing a person can ever read. The trouble is, I don't know which!

Best of luck with all your confrontations with the State apparatus.

Captain Ranty said...

Thanks Sobers.

The powers that were would have you believe that it is all bollocks. Understandable reaction. I'd say exactly the same if I was in their shoes.

I am certain this will be tested soon. I am happy to be a guinea pig.

My very best wishes to you in your endeavours!

Captain, a few quick questions if you don't mind please;
1. Doesn't an affidavit need to be from a notary public?
2. How do you know it hasn't landed in Mr. Charrington's in-tray, and that his out-tray isn't a list of invitations for room 101?
3, if in lawful rebellion and outside statute law, can you bear arms?
4. Dner this square with the Hopi idea of turning away from the whole stinking mess?

richard said...

dner = does- finger trouble!

Captain Ranty said...


1. My autograph (but not necessarily the contents of my affidavit) needs to be witnessed by an NP.

2. I sent it registered mail. It was signed for so I know it got there. After that, it is their problem, not mine.

3. My choice to apply for a shotgun License (controlled by a statute) was a difficult one to make. Either I bought a weapon on the black market, or I swallowed my pride and applied like everyone else. Lawfully though, I do not need to apply (beg) for permission to own a gun.

4. Yes and no. They will not play fairly, will they? So now I have paperwork (which they recognise) that complies with common law. The Hopi would no doubt accuse me capitulation!


Old Nick said...

Would you like me to burn the head of the inland revenue for you, Captain?

Captain Ranty said...

I should have said that the process does not end with an affidavit.

I need to send two more Notices.

They are:

A Notice of Fault and an Opportunity to Cure (just in case it is still sat in an in-tray).


A Notice of Default.

This last document reminds them that I have stare decisis (Lat; “to stand by that which is decided.”) and I also have ‘RES JUDICATA’ – (Lat; decided or determined by judicial power; a thing judicially decided; a judgement that is considered final and bars re-litigation on the same matter).

Essentially, because they did not rebut, the problem lies with them. My Kevlar vest now becomes an Iron Man suit.


Captain Ranty said...


Thank you!


Captain Ranty said...

Old Nick,

We must forgive them for they really, really, really know not what they do.

They are as blind as we are.


Indyanhat said...

You cannot compare any of us living here in the UK to the Hopi or Vice versa, they still have the ability to disappear into the wilderness as they suggest we all should, we do not have any wilderness to disappear into anymore!
Therefore we need to do something to stop the rot, and the course you are taking looks like it should work, that is until they decide to act against people like us that take this course of action , how they do that and the result of that is anyones guess.
You have my support and undivided attention when it comes to exercising the Freeman alternative, and it will not be long before I follow in your footsteps, one good argument at Law School to go I think!

Old Nick said...

Actually CR I think they know exactly what they do - and what's more, I think they enjoy it.
I once went out with a tax inspector. She was a hard nosed bitch if ever I met one.
Anyway, up to you! (But I might burn her anyway)

Corrugated Soundbite said...

Awesome, Cap'n.

As someone considering taking this path (and thinking about it every day), I look forward to the next installment.

Cheers ;-)

richard said...

Perhaps it would be a good idea to follow your example ASAP. Why? The new "foreign" police, which our Cameron's about to authorise via the EU, operate under Roman Law not Common Law. They may (worst case scenario) be an Einsatzgruppen specialising in iron-suited "troublemakers" but even so, any avenue for freedom is liable to become less accessible. If EU Police get here to police us, we're sunk. They haven't sworn an oath to keep the Queen's peace and uphold common law.

Cedric Edwards said...

Hi Captain,

Can you please explain why you attached a stamp to your affidavit.

You have been an in inspiration. Thank you for taking the time to produce such important and valuable information.

Thank you,

The Postmaster General is one of the few characters in this game who can act in the public and in the private.

By using a stamp on your paperwork you are acting like a postmaster. By cancelling the stamp (with your autograph) you are showing them that you too, can act in the public and the private.

I also add a stamp and my autograph on the back of every notice I send. A common trick that a judge or magistrate will use is to turn your documents face down and say "I see no papers before me". You remove his/her opportunity to do this if you add a cancelled stamp. You simply tell him or her to look again, and ask if they can see it now.

I used to use first class stamps but then I realised it doesn't matter. I bought 100 x 1p stamps and use them instead.
