UPDATED - Elisabeth Beckett goes to court to defend British Constitution
Derek Tozer reports that "Elisabeth Beckett of The Old Vicarage, Alston, Westmorland CA9 3RE is to appear in the High Court in London from 10 am to 11 on 23 May, in her oral application for a judicial review of the legality of the liability order used against Council tax payers, the lady having refused to pay that tax". That Elisabeth will have her day in court is good news.
UPDATE - It is good news, but we have just learned that the court date has been moved. As soon as we learn of the new date, we will let you know.
In January we wrote -
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.
She is being represented by Leolin Price, C.B., Q.C, a brilliant Constitutional lawyer. Hers could be a landmark application and she would welcome support.
