"Saving your ass since 1999"
A woo miscellany
Some woo-related stuff that I wanted to share but couldn’t think how to shoehorn into another post:
Via @caebrwyn, a list of FOI requests made by “angie of the elder family”, including “Under who’s authority does the Council attach a NAME?” and “Are you on your oath at this time?”. (Favourite quote: “You must have authority to do what you do, otherwise you have no authority to do it.”)
Via Alistair Sloan, more FOI shenanigans, this time from “brian ovens” to various authorities in Scotland and elsewhere. (Favourite quote: “THE LAW is six letters that can be changed to mean Wealth and that about sums it up.”)
And (also via Alistair) yet more FOI gubbins from “I am the agent for the fictional strawman that was created with the name Sarah Goldsmith”.
Via Carl Gardner, footage of “commonly known as Dom” failing to retrieve his property from a police station because he won’t admit who he is or sign his name. (Is this the world’s most self-defeating conspiracy theory, or what?)
I hope that you didn’t look too closely, or it’ll have cost you £250,000. IN GOLD.
Via ElementaryPenguin below the line on Comment is Free, a list of more freemen on the land fails from RationalWiki.
And here’s a full round up of the woogate posts that I know about (please let me know if there’s any I’ve missed):
- Adam Wagner at UK Human Rights Blog on Freemen of the Dangerous Nonsense
- Carl Gardner’s Comment is Free post
- InHouseHotShot: Jejune IP Law
- Garrulous Law: Get Out Of Jail Free?
- Rainbow Chard: ‘Sovereign’ citizens in the UK: a study in nonsense
- Francis Fitzgibbon QC at Nothing Like The Sun: The Cat Who Walks Alone
- Law and Lawyers: The new Levellers? Hardly
…and David Allen Green has promised a post, which I will link to when it arrives.
Finally, if I carry on blogging for a hundred years I will never top this happy side effect of my appearance on Comment is Free:
Carl Gardner has blogged about BNP types turning up at Freemen on the Land stunts.
A second blog from InHouseHotshot about weird copyright woo.
And David Allen Green’s round up and comment for The Lawyer.
