When In Rome...

...it's best to question the Romans.

This email came to me yesterday. I thought it was apt and will reproduce it in full here.

It asks a fundamental question of (any) government: Does crime cost, or does it pay?

The answer, (here in the Republic of South Africa) is that it pays the government. An awful lot.

Look:

"Question:  "What is the influence of crime on the S.A. Govt?"
 

Answer:  Crime generates millions and millions of Rand's for the SA Government

Here are the facts....

Example 1:

Take just one million home owners in Gauteng who pay for "armed crime reaction" (not crime prevention) where private security companies react AFTER the crime has taken place - no wonder they never make any arrests!

This service costs on average R250 p.m. Therefore 1,000,000 x R240.00 x 12 months x 14% VAT, generates R403 million in tax revenue for the SA Govt!


Example 2:

A car thief steals a R500,000 car and receives between R10,000 and R30,000 for his deed. The car owner is paid out by insurance and then purchases another similar vehicle, on which
he pays 14% VAT of approx R70,000 as a direct result of crime. Who profited the most? The thief or the SA Govt?

We must begin with a mechanism whereby the SA Govt is forced to reconsider this unconstitutional and immoral practice of profiting from crime!

All South Africans should demand that all payments related to protection of life and property should be VAT free and Tax deductible!

This principle should also apply to replacement of stolen property as well as estate duty. If a person dies as a result of crime we should also demand that estate duty not be paid. How much do you think the SA Govt. has made out of estate duty from the murders of 1300 South African farmers?

The S.A. Govt likes to compare us to overseas. Well overseas your safety and security is covered by your income tax and is tax deductible!

It is time that South Africans stood together and made the Govt. and public aware of the Govt's "income" from crime. In the meantime crime is the goose that lays the golden egg.

Is it also not unreasonable to expect victims of violence and hijackings to pay their own medical costs? The Govt. should pay for these expenses as well as family counselling for victims!

Come on South Africa,
ask the right questions and demand the right answers!"

She Isn't The Monarch...

...she's a very naughty girl.



If any of you were ever a little bewildered as to why a (reasonably) sane man such as I would enter Lawful Rebellion, watch the film above and be bewildered no more.

She breached that contract within months of signing her name to it. In fact, she breached that contract 24 times in 1953 alone. (There were 26 pieces of Legislation in 1953: 24 were new Acts, and 2 Acts were repealed). Since then, of course, she has breached the contract thousands of times. (3401, to be precise). But, once was enough.

And now that we have a ruling, thanks to JAH, I am supremely comfortable about my appearance in court in the weeks ahead. I was confident before this ruling, now I am semi-delirious. Victory is mine.

True Dat



I was over at GV's place earlier and I thought I would have a quick listen to Ashley Mote.

I'm glad I did. I think that Ashley is one of that rare breed that "gets it". This is a man that has served at Westminster and in Brussels so I guess if anyone truly understands the damage various political fuckwits have done to our nation, he does.

I urge you to watch the first video at least. If that doesn't make your blood boil then I suppose nothing will. The following three videos (watch them at GV's gaff) are just as interesting and they will affect your blood pressure.

Watch them all if you care for this little island of ours. Watch them all if you have been dozing under the duvet for the last 20 years. When you have watched them all, pop into the bathroom.

In there you will find the hero you have been waiting for.

He or she will be looking back at you from the mirror.

We keep putting it off. We keep saying "Any day now those bastards are going to drive me around the bend, and then I will act". Or "One day soon I will be able to fight back".

Guess what?

That day is here.

Do something. Say something. Tell someone.

I have a magic little word. It starts all sorts of trouble. Not for you, but for them. I've mentioned it before so you should recognise it.

That word is "NO!"

Politicians hate it. Bullies hate it. Control-freaks hate it. Pecksniffs especially hate it.

Start with "No" and build it up from there. Until they hear it everywhere and all the time they are going to continue raping our country. They won't stop until we all have microchips embedded. They won't stop until cameras adorn the inside of every home. They won't stop until even thinking that the EU is a bad idea is a crime.

Tell them no. Tell them it stops now. Tell your friends. Tell strangers. Tell everyone.

But, FFS, stop telling yourself that a hero heads this way.

The hero was here all along.

It's you.

High Treason: Court Action Today-UPDATED

Now this IS interesting.

You regular readers have heard me bang on about the House of Lords Act 1999 often enough. I have said ad nauseum that that Act, shat out by ZaNuLabour, was deeply, deeply flawed. What I never said (but often thought) was that it was a clear example of high treason.

I am delighted to learn that one Baron Mereworth is challenging the Act in the high court today.

Full details (and some other interesting factoids) are contained in these two video clips from The Runnymede Institute.






I owe my old mate Nominedeus a tip of the beret for finding the clips.

Let's see what the court has to say about it all. I will add an update as soon as I find anything.

If you want to, you can have a gander at the Runnymede Institute and for background you can learn more here about the Constitutional Transgression.

Fascinating stuff. Even more so when you discover that a win in court negates all those thousands of "laws" that have been enacted since 1999.

Here is the latest from the Runnymede Institute:

Anarchy for Beginners



I spent a happy hour listening to this interview. I lean towards anarcho-capitalism myself. Leave the markets alone. Free from all government interference they will self-correct and flourish.

Any self-aware government should know that they have no business in business, no business in education, no business in transport and no business in health. A very limited government with severely curtailed power has to be the thing to aim for. Get them out of our lives and FFS get them out of our wallets.

UKBA: Lying Bastards

Recent visitors will know that I have picked a fight with the UK Border Agency.

I contravened the Customs & Excise Management Act 1979 (Section 78 (4) if you are a stickler for details). As explained in my last blog on this issue, I wrote a Notice to UKBA saying that the seizure of my goods was unlawful and I demanded that they return them to me. I had 30 days to make my claim. My Notice arrived with them on day 25. Their letter to me stated quite clearly that they would "hold safe the seized goods until the matter was resolved".

A couple of days ago I received another letter from UKBA saying they had decided that they would not Restore my goods. They say explicitly that they do not assess the legality of the seizure, merely that they decide on Restoration. The "legal" aspects, the reason I am going to court, are handled by a different department.

In the same letter there are four columns across the page: Description, Quantity, Excise Duty and Do UKBA Still Have It? Underneath those headings it says the following (respectively) Cigarettes Cigars, 960 25, £201.42 £37.69, No No.

Now, I would submit that the case is already decided in their favour. They have decided that I committed an offence, they seized my goods, and now they say they no longer have them.

WTF?

Really. What was the point of them writing to me, giving me instructions on "What To Do If Your Goods Are Seized", stating that they will hold my goods safe, if they were going to summarily find me guilty AND destroy my goods?

When I get to court and put up my defence and win, what exactly are they going to return to me? I don't want money, this isn't about that. This is about having my lawful standing recorded in a court of law. The tobacco was the trigger, the shot will be heard in court. My point being that I care not a jot about the goods, they were just a means to an end.

But I now have solid proof that they are a bunch of lying bastards. I have it in writing.

It should be fun watching them squirm in court.

And So, To War

With the UK Border Agency.

The backstory:

Almost two months ago I had goods seized on my return to the UK. I wrote a Notice to the UKBA and informed them of my lawful standing and demanded my goods be returned to me immediately. I politely explained that I was in Lawful Rebellion and I sent them copies of several affidavits as evidence. I then left on another trip to West Africa. On my return home yesterday there was a letter waiting for me from UKBA.

It says that I have appealed against the seizure and now they must start Condemnation Proceedings in the Sheriff Court. I should expect a Writ to be served on me by 9th June. It does not say under which statute my goods were taken. For transparency, you should know that the goods taken were duty free cigarettes and cigars. I was also carrying some duty paid goods, which the agent generously permitted me to keep. I saw no point arguing with the agent at the airport, knowing full well that I needed to issue a Notice to his superiors.

As you would expect, my Notice to them dated 23rd April fully explained why statute law is meaningless to me, but they patently do not/cannot understand the written word, so it's off to court we go.

I realise that I am supposed to be scared silly at the prospect, and even more terrified of the implied threat in their letter to me, which clearly informs me that I alone will be responsible for their costs (£3000-£6000) in the event that I lose my case.

I am not terrified. I welcome the opportunity to test Lawful Rebellion in a court of law. To my certain knowledge I have four separate defences and in law, a man can bring as many as he feels necessary. I may add more.

When the Writ is served, I will be sending a Notice to the court detailing my counter-claim.

More updates will follow as this thing rolls out. UKBA say it could take between six and twelve months.

Ladies and gentlemen, please take a seat. The operation is scheduled to commence at 0445 local time. Mr. President, the command chair is yours if you would like it. Mr. President?

POTUS

Who, me? Oh, uh, sorry, I was reading the reviews of my set at the Correspondent's dinner. Check this out everybody, I got three and half stars from the Post!

How long is this thing going to take? I still haven't read my reviews at the Times and Huffington Post.

COMGEN JSOC

Undetermined, sir. SEAL 6 has trained against 16 different strike site defense scenarios. If you recall, I briefed you on those last night.

POTUS

Yeah, right during my rehearsal. And you almost threw my timing.

COMGEN JSOC

It's an XBox controller. It, uh, controls the SEALs.

POTUS

Really?

COMGEN JSOC

Yes sir. We thought by letting you participate in the operation, it might help make it less boring.

POTUS

Cool! What do the buttons do?

COMGEN JSOC

They... uh... just push them, you'll figure it out.

VPOTUS

Ooh! Ooh!

COMGEN JSOC

Yes, Mr. Vice President. You don't have to raise your hand.

I wanna play too! Can I play with my Wii controller? 

COMGEN JSOC

Sure, go ahead. And now, if...

How come I always have to be the terrorist?

Heading Back To The Bat-Cave.

It is almost a bat cave. I have around 100 pipistrelles living in the ceiling space above my office at home. I miss them chattering when I am away.

Memories I will be taking home:

1. The rotting corpse of a male by the side of the Lekki Expressway. It has been lying there for ten days now. A nearby (food) vendor said "If it bursts, it will definitely put my customers off".

2. A "lady of the night" showed me her right boob in an effort to entice me to make the beast with two backs. I was not enticed.

3. A crash between two motorbikes (manufactured by the mysterious Nanfang-perhaps biker Richard can shed some light?) but fortunately only egos were bruised. They both had helmets on (a miracle in itself) but they had them on backwards so that they looked cool. They didn't bother with the straps either.

This is an overnight flight so I don't expect to get much sleep. I will be full of tiredness when I get home and no-one will listen to my pathetic "north-south jet lag is real" whining.







I have a couple of nice posts lined up. If I can stir up as much discord as the last couple I will be well chuffed.

Fuck EU

Today is Europe Day.

I wanted to record the event by saying "Fuck EU".

Nothing personal, I am opposed to a united Europe. It makes no sense. None at all. Twenty seven separate nations, all rich in history, become poorer, bankrupt, even, when forced together, in some twisted shotgun wedding.

I love Europeans, All of them. I just don't see the need to be married to them. Let's just hold hands, or maybe go out for a pint now and then. We don't need to be joined at the hip.

Fuck EU.

The Orphans have a nice piece on the subject.

Over at Anna Raccoon's den is an interesting article exploring ways in which we can or should resist this ugly perversion of unification.

Fuck EU.

I have written many time about the abomination that is the EU. It is unnatural. It is unwanted. It is unwarranted. It is a vile union and it deserves a swift death.

Fuck EU.

As luck would have it, to despise, to revile, even to bad-mouth the union is a crime. So it brings especial pleasure to say "Fuck EU".

Say it loud and say it proud:

FUCK EU!!!

Fuck EU one thousand times with a syphilitic love stick.

Die.

Die now, and die ten thousand times. You are a sick, diseased, ridiculous idea. You were condemned before you drew breath. You are unelected, unaccountable, undesired and you are unnecessary.

Alex Salmond Is A Liar

So says this man.



Peter makes a great deal of sense. Why would Madge simply hand over Scotland, given that she owns large chunks of it, and, the Crown earns a handsome income from the taxes on North Sea oil revenues?

Have a look and let me know what you think.

CR.

What Next For Alba?

Alex Salmond and the SNP have delivered a stunning win in Scotland.

I don't have all the figures to hand but I believe the Nats now have 69 seats in Holyrood. They needed 65 to form a majority government. Now that they have that majority, what happens next?












Whatever you may think of Wee Eck, he is a sharp politician. Will he offer a referendum on independence, or, more accurately, when will he offer a referendum? Only he has the answer to that but his party are shouting for one right now. They are riding the crest of a wave, and if you will permit mixed metaphors, they feel they need to strike while the iron is hot.

It is, of course, a double-edged sword: if they call a referendum early (as opposed to their pledge that one will be offered near the end of their term at Holyrood) they may fare better. BUT, if independence is rejected, there will not be another chance to ask the people for another generation at least.

My original "problem" with Scottish independence remains: I do not believe Scotland will be independent for long. With Scotland breaking away from the Union, all of the countries that make up the UK are automatically kicked out of the EU and must reapply. I have absolutely no doubt in my mind that the Nats would apply immediately, and this neuters their hard-fought battle for independence.

Can Ireland, Greece, Portugal, Spain, or any of the other 27 nations truly say they are independent? I think not.

Ireland (and the others) have lost control of any economic decisions they may have made. The EU Unelected and Unaccountable tell them what they can and cannot do financially. Much like parents handing pocket money to children, they (Mum & Dad) decide how much and when, and to a certain extent, they decide what the kids can spend it on. If, having some numpty in Brussels telling you how to spend your money is defined as independence, then I really need to get a new dictionary.

Between now and referendum day, millions of words will be written. Countless talk-shows will have politicians (of every stripe) discussing this topic ad nauseum. It will seem endless. It has already begun. And of course, until the Nats tell the world what they plan to do, it is all pure speculation.

Most politicians in Scotland are committed Europhiles. For that reason alone, none of them will ever get my support. I don't care what they promise me. I don't care if they sign oaths in blood or sacrifice virgins on Ben Nevis. They will lie. It's axiomatic. The sun rises in the east, politicians lie. They will do what is best for them, not what is best for me.

Whatever Scotland decides, it won't be in my interest. If the Nats hold a referendum and win, we are stuck with the EU. If they hold a referendum and lose, we are still stuck with the EU.

There is nothing in it for me.

Nothing at all.

The Actual Arrest Of Charlie Veitch

 I am out of synch with the way this all came about, having already posted the video containing news of Charlie's release, but that's the way it goes sometimes.



You will note just how polite Charlie and his girlfriend Silkie are during the arrest.

The two police officers are also polite and answer questions when they feel that they can. They had to be careful because they were equipped with cameras to film the event as well.

I remain disgusted that he was arrested in the first place but I am staggered at the number of so-called libertarians who tacitly supported his arrest. It's apparently alright to take a day off from our activities but we must stand by while a bloke, whose only "crime" is to shout nice things through a megaphone. And we should not only stand by whilst he is arrested and caged but we should applaud the effort afterwards?

It was dark day in the long march back to freedom.

Mark my words: this situation will happen again and again and again.

I should be quoting Niemoller but I am guessing that most of you can already grasp the parallel.
