Corporate Cuisine, Anyone?

Sage advice from Timothy AntiTerrorist.

(See what I did there? The video is about food, and sage is a...okay, okay, forget it).

MSG is nasty. Aspartame is dangerous. Look out for these, and other chemicals that are doing you no favours whatsoever.

You are what you eat, they say.

So be careful what you shovel in. Just five families control the worlds food supply. To be absolutely certain that none of their crap is enetering your system, there is only one thing you can do:

Grow yer own.

Mrs Bucko grows veg. This year we got enough to make a couple of sanwiches, plus a few potatoes.

It aint as easy as it looks.

Tell me about it.

I had my first go at it this year. Best results were my spring onions. Carrots were a disappointment and my peas slowly died. Bastards gave up without a fight. Tomatoes and potatoes did well but we only produced enough for a couple of meals.

I realise now that I did not pay enough attention to soil preparation.

I will give it another go using grow-bags for some things, and after doing the right thing by my soil, I'll try again with my veg patch.

Luckily we have a large garden front and rear so we have the space. It's just knowing how much to dedicate to veg growing.

Ranty, I have been trying to find out the defination of an unregistered person, a person without a birth certificate without success. I have been wondering why, for instance, travellers i.e gypsies, forighn nationals, seem to have to be delt with differently according to legalise.
If you or I (registered birth certifacate, were to do half of what they do we would be banged up. For instance motoring offences, trespass, child welfare, health and safty.
I wonder if by not having regestered anything they are in fact not covered by acts and statues.
This may be all about nothing but it may also be something the "govt" may not want out in the open.
Is there any chance that you or your readers could shine some light on this matter.

Some good points there defender, I have often wondered the same.

Do they tax and insure their top of the range mercs and land cruisers, do they have a driving licence?

I know they use the health service, so do they have an NI number, if so they must have a birth certificate.

I don't imagine for a minute they pay any income tax, it always struck me that when they were gathered on one "camp" site they were easy pickings for the police and revenue.

They must all be Freemen.

XL5, I am not sure you need a NI number to receive NHS treatment.

Captain Ranty said...


I know of a couple of Freemen who have not registered their childrens births. Many letters over many weeks followed, each getting more threatening than the last. They gave up eventually. Everything they offer us, even birth registration, is an offer. We can, and must (if it suits us) say no.

If the stories about Birth Bonds are true, that cost the gubmint a few million £££'s. No wonder they get upset. All your childrens is ours, goddammit!

The Travellers are in a league of their own. They are the original Freemen, as Fireball says. They just say "Fuck you" to the gubmint and no-one says a word.

There's a lesson there for all of us.


defender said...

OK Ranty, I get that, just say no, which is great, but why is it so powerful in terms which are clear and unambigious?
What is it exactly which changes from no consent to consent.
I would like to find the exact meaning of this so as to simplfy explaining this to myself and others.
I know the exact defination is about somewhere and it is well hidden. What I am after is irrefutable facts under law.

"XL5, I am not sure you need a NI number to receive NHS treatment."

How do they know who's entitled and who's not then??
Can anyone just rock up for a knee replacement?

I know whenever I've gone in to the NHS "system" they have accessed my details on a computer at the point of arrival, so I assume they had the usual trail of name, address, NI number.

If you are paying NI contributions then you're entitled to "benefits" is my understanding of how it works. But of course pikeys and third world immigrants seemingly put lie to this theory???

Bloody useful link here


Captain Ranty said...


I have been a member of FMOTL for over a year now. I have linked to them many times in the past.

Thanks though. It will be useful for newer readers of this blog.

Hi all,

I immigrated from Holland when I was 10, and never registered my birth here... yet when I turned 16, my NI card landed on the doormat just the same.
I remember my parents had to jump through many hoops to gain residency here, that is, until the open border policy for European countries.
I still hold a Dutch passport, and have absolutely no idea if becoming a British 'citizen' is something I want for myself.
I love where I've lived since being in the UK, know nothing really about the country of my birth, yet at the same time wonder if I'm only allowed to stay here on privilege....
Anyone else know?

Captain Ranty said...


That's a good question.

If we take the wide view, it shouldn't matter because we are all now Europeans first, and [insert home country] second.

I haven't looked at Dutch Law. Do they follow the Napoleonic Code in the Netherlands? If so, and if we destroy the EU, (as we must), you would be better off here living under common law.

I just looked it up at Wikisometimeswejustmakestuffupforthefunofitpedia:

" The Netherlands is a civil law country. Its laws are written and the application of customary law is exceptional. The role of case law is small in theory, although in practice it is impossible to understand the law in many fields without also taking into account the relevant case law. The Dutch system of law is based on the French Civil Code with influences from Roman Law and traditional Dutch customary law. The new civil law books (which went into force in 1992) were heavily influenced by the German Bürgerliches Gesetzbuch.

The primary law making body is formed by the Dutch parliament in cooperation with the government. When operating jointly to create laws they are commonly referred to as the legislature (Dutch: wetgever). The power to make new laws can be delegated to lower governments or specific organs of the State, but only for a prescribed purpose. A trend in recent years has been for parliament and the government to create "framework laws" and delegate the creation of detailed rules to ministers or lower governments. (e.g. a province or municipality)"

It's a right old mix.

Stay here mate. When me and my crew bring parliament and the monarchy down, life will be sweet.
