Interesting post. I can see that they've probably answered the question literally, but I also understand why you made the connection you did
It's an interesting issue - I've recently become aware of the Freeman/Common Law idea's, but I've yet to make any practical sense of them.
If you could somehow 'op-out' of this apparent contract, then could you argue that statute law doesn't apply to you? I'm clearly not a lawyer, but
the idea there could be some massive con perpetuated by the government (by simply ommitting to tell you your rights) is worth a look surely? Help me
This is from the UK government website
You must register the birth of your baby within 42 days of the birth in England and Wales, and 21 days in Scotland. If you can't go to the district
where your baby was born you can go to another office (still within 42 days) and the registrar will send your details to the appropriate district
office. If the baby was born within England and Wales however, it must be registered within England and Wales. The same applies for Scotland.
The interesting bit for me is that in all the explanations of the law regarding registering a birth that I can find online, none of them mention any
consequences other than 'prosecution.' They also say "you must" an awful lot. I wonder if anyone's ever been successfully prosecuted?
Edited because of new info!
