Media Notice: Council Tax Protest — Tottenham Magistrates Court, Thurs 4 August 2016

Guest blog post from Revd Paul Nicolson of Taxpayers Against Poverty

The liability order hearing on the 15th June was adjourned to the 4th August at 10 am at Tottenham Magistrates Court, London N17 6RT. Tottenham Magistrates Court, London N17 6RT.

I am refusing to pay the council tax as an act of civil disobedience against laws passed by national and local government which are damaging the health and well being of residents who claim benefits in Haringey, and throughout the UK. The Office for National Statistics (ONS) has recorded ever declining well-being among the UK population since 2010 and then increasing deaths.

I have been summoned to a liability order hearing at Tottenham Magistrates Court.

I am saying that Haringey council uses a careless interpretation of strict regulations, which does not give due regard to the dire circumstances or health of vulnerable residents, when setting the level of council tax enforcement costs, and which the council is awarded "blind" by Tottenham magistrates 1000s at a time and over 20,000 times a year.

I am awaiting the answers to the following Parliamentary Questions asked by Baroness Hollins following my letter to the new Prime Minister
