Title: Intruders have tried to arrest a judge after storming into a courtroom on Merseyside.
The government’s voice – the BBC – reports on intruders storming a courtroom. The Wirral Globe has another spin on the story that seems a little more informative; UK Police Online has begun a discussion on the matter and news has also reached mainstream press in this report by a “Daily Mail Reporter” dated 8th March 2011.
There are mixed feelings about protests such as this; on the one hand we have to applaud those involved for taking a stand through direct action which we know is fundamentally lawful. On the other hand, it gives an opportunity for the nay-sayers to report such events as attempts to avoid paying taxes which, of course, this is not.
Freemen are honourable and seek only to deal in honourable fashion, we all agree that we must pay our way in life and that elements of council tax although unlawful are necessary. This does not mean that we give up our right to ask questions over how that money is spent nor do we give up our right to ensure that our courts are places where true justice can be accessed by all and not just by bully-boy councils whose one intent is to extract the maximum amount of money from our pockets for the smallest possible delivery of services.
