Elisabeth Beckett goes to court to defend the British Constitution
The money raised for local councils has historically been used for local services approved by local elected council members. The money was never intended to be used for extracurricular activities that have not been approved by the British taxpayer.
Last year Elisabeth Beckett discovered that her local council’s money was being used to fund a European Union-dictated regional assembly. To protest the expenditure of money for a foreign-mandated assembly that she believes has no standing under the British Constitution, she refused to pay her Council taxes, and has appealed the matter to the High Court.
In response the government has brought all its power to bear on Elisabeth, who is 83. She has received numerous letters from council officers and visits from bailiffs to her old home in Alston, Cumbria. She recently handed over a response to a Police Sergeant from her wheelchair. We support her High Court appeal to protect British rights under the British Constitution.
