Dispute Resolution and the Doctrine of 3 notices

Life should be very simply, and when knowledge is hidden then it merely creates fear, dependency and monopolies where privileged individuals can life off the energy of those who are kept in the dark by not having access to the knowledge.

The rule of law is simple…

All are equal under the law, and no one is above the law = Equity act in person and will not suffer a wrong without a remedy!

Everything is merely about claims, and as we are innocent until proven guilty, the claimant must prove their claim on the balance of probabilities (51%) for civil matters (95% for scientific matters, as below that it is not considered science!), and where harm is done beyond any reasonable doubt (and if based on science 99%).

If at the time you cannot show your actions are lawful, then you are breaching another’s peace (individually), or the people’s peace (collectively).

By asking another to prove their claim that they have a lawful right, and that you are under a lawful obligation, you are not creating controversy (acting with honour, good faith and clean hands).

This module shows you how to civilly settle disputes by understanding people’s normal behaviour, and if they continue to breach the peace how you can create a record that you can take for public dispute resolution (courts).

This is how the monarch’s first promise works – we, the people create our respective laws in the courts, so each of us holds the power to change society for the benefit of all.

Time to change our customs – no more empty promises from politicians, no more lying politicians, no more abusing those with less knowledge and turning a blind eye

  1. Hi Marc,
    Just to clarify, the 250 pounds per hour charged is only for new disputes that are not in the Cease and Desist Notice I am issuing?

    The court will decide the penalty if they cannot provide evidence to their claims, is that correct?

    • The logic is the respondent must answer the points of dispute.
      By not answering or obfuscation where the claim something they have no right to claim, or are creating a dispute where none exists, you will charge for that time only resulting from them breaching your peace!

      Equally they could is you are doing the same so always act in honour, good faith and with clean hands.

      • Thank you for the response Marc.
        Sorry still need more clarity, it is for every hour from when they breach my peace until such time as the claim is settled, which will probably be in court? Is that correct? I mean it could potentially be months.

          • Wouldn’t we all….
            Human nature is to do as little as possible for as much as possible…
            So we need to draw the line in the sand (hence according to lawful governance ‘according to our respective laws and customs’, we are simply changing our custom and no longer tolerating them behaving as they do so we need to move them to do what they are meant to do and hence holding them to account!

        • According to the civil procedure rules there are only 3 options to respond to each point:
          Admit the point, or
          Deny the point providing counter argument, or
          Ask for further supporting evidence…

          If they do not do that then they are breaching your peace (creating the common law tort of trespass), so you can charge at what ever rate you want as no one can tell you what your time is worth!

          You give them the time frame within which to respond.
          At any point when they do not respond honourably, in good faith and with clean hands as defined in the civil procedure rules, then you can charge… so you are setting up your litigant in person rate should it need to go to court…

          They have the choice and you are letting them know in advance what your fees will be to breach your peace!

  2. Hi Mark.
    I undertook the training with you this weekend at Rossendale, I was the guy wearing the hat!
    could you direct me to a downloadable version of the notices, please?
    I don’t seem to have come across them in this training block.

  3. Mark this is outstanding piece of work in other words a Master piece, awesome stuff I can’t wait to try my new printer out to serve the military GP staff to 2 too this date they are over obsessed on wearing masks and we are in April 2022.
    I want changing “notice for the agent is notice with the principal & vice versa

    • Never come across that wording before – so long as you explain what you mean (substance) the exact wording does not matter (form) as equity is about substance and not form!

  4. Very well explained, as previous material : )

    Are witnesses necessary when serving a notice by email?

    I’m also wondering how many MP’s or Heads of schools, etc. got served the three notices and what actually happened. I don’t think any MPs have been prosecuted or penalised in any way and most repeatedly extended the scamdemic Act. I’m thinking that it’s important to hold them accountable through court action if they fail to respond, otherwise they’ll think we’re just crying wolf and ignore any further notices…

    • If you get autoresponder then you have proof of service. If you don’t then the witnesses are proof of service…
      All those noticed will be evidence used against them when the trials begin!

  5. Hi Marc, thanks for a great course!
    I cannot download the excel file because I am getting blocked and don’t see the Notices templates anywhere. Could you please email these to me at mihailoi@yahoo.com
    Hopefully I can use them to help some friends and organise a local peace keepers group in NE greater London area.
    Incidentally, if you anyone from around Woodford IG8 or IG9 or IG10 I would be grateful to get in touch with them.
    Many thanks, Marc, your work is inspiring!

  6. Hello Mark, thank you very much for the knowledge shared.
    Council tax is what i am disputing.
    1-It is a dispute that includes unexplained arrears despite very numerous letters form us. Now, I have also started asking them to justify that claiming council tax against us is lawful. So i guess there are two elements to this now. Do i lump the current council tax claim and the arrears into one rebuttal asking to justify we owe council tax at all?
    1-My partner and I are both named on the council tax literature. My partner does not wish to dispute the council tax claim. I have decided to do this in my own name only, using your advice and resources. I expect my borough council might drop my name but will continue claiming against my partner, after which i will hope to convince my partner to do the same as i did and help him through it. Am i approaching this the right way?
    Any thoughts on the subject from you or the members of this community would be welcome.
    Love and best wishes to everyone on this journey<3

  7. Hello Mark and all,
    Hope everyone is OK and feeling not drained but strong on this our journey to get remedy for the people.
    On the reply to a FOI request I made regarding the people’s obligation to pay Council Tax, I was directed to the Finance Act 1992. I went to the introductory page and found this:
    An Act to grant certain duties, to alter other duties, and to amend the law relating to the National Debt and the Public Revenue, and to make further provision in connection with Finance.
    [16th July 1992]
    Most Gracious Sovereign, WE, Your Majesty’s most dutiful and loyal subjects, the Commons of the United Kingdom in Parliament assembled, towards raising the necessary supplies to defray Your Majesty’s public expenses, and making an addition to the public revenue, have freely and voluntarily resolved to give and grant unto Your Majesty the several duties hereinafter mentioned; and do therefore most humbly beseech Your Majesty that it may be enacted, and be it enacted by the Queen’s most Excellent Majesty, by and with the advice and consent of the Lords Spiritual and Temporal, and Commons, in this present Parliament assembled, and by the authority of the same, as follows:—
    I understand this to in fact describe “duties” of the people who agreed the piece of legislation, and that the agreeing parties (to whom the duties apply) are those named on the paper who were actually present or signed it. The people clearly were not present on the day and at the place where this was agreed and I have not signed on it, therefore those duties do not apply to me. Have I understood this correctly?
    Thank you

    • ABSOLUTELY CORRECT… This is what the whole Council Tax Prove my obligation is about 🙂
      If you did not consent then you are not bound, and without your consent no one else can bind you to any obligation!!! Simple as that!
      Problem is to enforce it, but the more that do the challenge the more seeds are planted and the soone the insanity ends 🙂

      • Yes, I see that. We must stand up and also clean up our act and become really honourable in every part of our lives. Like a battle within and without. It does feel a little scary to face my local government, but empowering at the same time lol. But whatever the outcome for each, for every person doing this, the benefit for all is surely there. As well as for our descendants. So, a very good thing to be doing.

  8. Hello Mark, I have re-read and re-listened several times but i am still confused about something. And as it is central to my rubuttal, i must ask you: Where does it say that Equity prevails over legislation? You say “Equity reigns supreme and prevails over Common Law”. My Council tells me “An act of Parliament trumps any Common Law concerns or jurisdiction”. How do I link Equity, Common Law and acts of Parliament and what are some of the supporting evidence for this?

    • If that is what the council is claiming ask them to prove it as that would resolve the dispute of where our obligation to pay is created…
      UNDERSTANDING LEGISLATION has a section called Case Law
      Case law is the set of rulings from court judgements that set precedents for how the law has been interpreted and applied in certain cases. Case law is not held on legislation.gov.uk. Some case law can be found at Find caselaw.
      This sets out that legislation must be interpreted by court which then creates case law which gives Acts of Parliament the force of law by setting a common law precedent!!!

  9. Marc, I apologise for spelling your name wrong three times :/
    Sorry. If you do not reply to those messages i will take this as my punishment lol. Although it could just be because my messages are a little long and you are very busy or having some well deserved time off 😉

  10. Hello Marc,
    In the same F.O.I request, my Council replied that not paying council tax was not a criminal offence, but that it could still lead to imprisonement. I feel like they have admitted that they cannot take me to court or prison. Am I wrong?

    I paste my F.O.I. response below for the benefit of all.


    Thank you for your recent request received by the Council on 19 October 2022.

    You have requested the following information under the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act 2000:

    Your request and our response are as follows:

    I would like to kindly ask you to provide the following information regarding Council Tax expenditure in the Reading Borough, where I live. Please could you provide:

    1 – 3 years of receipts showing where the council tax funding is being spent. I do not require to see percentages but actual proof of expenditure in pounds (£s)

    The Council publishes an outturn report annually on its website which details the Council’s financial income and expenditure for the year. The most recently published report is for 2021/22; 2020/21 and 2019/20 are also available.

    This is the weblink. https://www.reading.gov.uk/council-tax/how-we-use-your-money/

    It would exceed the time allowed under the FOI Act to provide receipts for every item purchased over the last three years.

    We are unable to provide you with the information as it is not readily available. The work necessary to interrogate the system to obtain this information would place the cost of responding to your request above the appropriate limit set by the Freedom of Information and Data Protection (Appropriate Limit and Fees) Regulations 2004, issued under Sections 9, 12 and 13 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000, and therefore there is no obligation on the Council to provide the information.

    This weblink details spending above £500.

    This weblink takes you to the Council Budget Book explaining all the Councils funding and spending.

    2 – What percentage of this funding goes to police services, ambulance services, waste collection services and school services.

    Please refer to the information available on the Council’s website. Ambulance Services are not funded via Council Tax.
    How we use your money – Reading Borough Council

    3 – Which law, not legislation, states that council tax must be paid?

    Council Tax was introduced by the Local Government Finance Act 1992 with effect from 1st April 1993. The basis on which a person is determined to be a ‘liable person’ largely relies upon a requirement for the liable person to be a ‘resident’ within the chargeable dwelling on any day. The billing authority is required to identify the individual or individuals who will be subject to the tax in respect of each chargeable dwelling within its area. The “Hierarchy of Liability’.

    For your convenience, I have copied the relevant part of the Act as detailed below.

    “Persons liable to pay Council Tax.

    (1) The person who is liable to pay council tax in respect of any chargeable dwelling and any day is the person who falls within the first paragraph of subsection (2) below to apply, taking paragraph (a) of that subsection first, paragraph (b) next, and so on.

    (2) A person falls within this subsection in relation to any chargeable dwelling and any day if, on that day—

    he is a resident of the dwelling and has a freehold interest in the whole or any part of it;
    he is such a resident and has a leasehold interest in the whole or any part of the dwelling which is not inferior to another such interest held by another such resident;
    he is both such a resident and a statutory of the whole or any part of the dwelling;
    he is such a resident and has a contractual licence to occupy the whole or any part of the dwelling;
    he is such a resident; or
    he is the owner of the dwelling.

    (3) Where, in relation to any chargeable dwelling and any day, two or more persons fall within the first paragraph of subsection (2) above to apply, they shall each be jointly and severally liable to pay the council tax in respect of the dwelling and that day.”

    The Local Government Finance Act is Statute law. This means it is laid down by an Act of Parliament. Nowhere in the act does it state that payment is voluntary. An Act of Parliament trumps any Common Law concerns or jurisdictions.

    Local Authorities are legally obliged to abide by the relevant Legislation as set down and approved by Central Government in Parliament. The Local Government Finance Act 1992 and associated Statutory Instruments set out how Council Tax is to be administered and collected. It also unambiguously lays out the Legal process that the Local Authorities must follow to collect Council Tax if a Council Tax liable person fails to pay.

    From this, The Council Tax is payable by all those issued with a Demand Notice, however, there are certain exemptions available for example, Full Time Students and persons with Severe Mental Impairment. Full details are available on the Council’s Website.

    With the authority of the Primary Legislation in place, the Council has no contractual relationship with the Council Tax Payer and therefore does not need their permission to charge Council Tax.

    This weblink takes you to the 1992 Local Government Finance Act which brought in Council Tax. https://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1992/14/contents

    I suggest you contact your MP if you want amendments made to the Act.

    4 – Which law, again, not legislation, states that it is a criminal offence not to pay council tax

    Non-payment of Council Tax is not a criminal offence. However, non-payment of the Council Tax can result in recovery action which will result in recovery costs being added to a debtor’s account. In addition to this, a debtor’s account may be passed to Enforcement Agents for collection, set for an attachment to Earnings or Benefits for collection and in extreme cases application may be made for the debtor to be sentenced to three months in prison.

    On the Reading Borough Council Website there is a publication scheme where you can search previous Freedom of Information requests that have been responded to, to locate an answer to a future FOI request.

    If you are unhappy with this response to your request for information under the Freedom of Information Act then you may ask for an internal review. Please make a request in writing to the Information Governance Team at IGTeam@reading.gov.uk. If you request such a review and are not content with its outcome, then you have a right to apply directly to the Information Commissioner for a decision. The Information Commissioner can be contacted at:

    • 1- Receipts was not quite right, I should have asked for Income and Expenditure accounts. But their links proved nothing and raised more questions. And they should have those ready, so their excuse of not having enough time to give an answer was not plausible.
      3- They just explain how they decided to charge residents, how they define residents and how they worked out the amount. Nothing to show my obligation. The next bit made me laugh “With the authority of the Primary Legislation in place, the Council has no contractual relationship with the Council Tax Payer and therefore does not need their permission to charge Council Tax”. I laughed because I thought there are no limits to this, I can decide to sweep in front of their house one day and charge them money, and because we have no contractual relashionship I dont need their permission to charge them. Have I got that right?
      3- If it is not a criminal offence to not pay council tax then how can it be a criminal offence to not pay the debt collectors that they send on their behalf? Dealing with Bailiffs is another tricky thing in itself. Hopefully finishing all your courses will give me some help with that.

      In the mean time, thank you again for your work. There should be an option for donations on your site for the community to support the work you are doing for the community 🙂 If there is such an option and I have missed it, could you please point me in the right direction.
      Thank you

      • You have seen the irrationality for yourself…
        Re point 3 – think now rationally if all are equal under the law and no one is above the law then you should be able to do to them exactly what they are doing to you – imposing an obligation without consent… this is the crux of the issue…
        Do Parliament have authority to impose their will upon another, and if so where is this authority derived from?
        Second point 3 (actually 4) – Again where is the authority arise from… If it is not a criminal matter then it must be dealt with under civil procedures and that requires proof of where the debt arose… which they cannot show as it does not exist, and hence simply is criminal fraud through the use of threats of violence backed up by actual violence…
        The only way we will overcome this is through this knowledge becoming common knowledge forcing the change that is needed to make it fair and just!

        Simply those who benefit from privileges granted by the community must through that benefit pay for it!

        • Your wording is very helpful. I am slowly getting the hang of this. I mean to play my part helping spread this knowledge. We are the majority, there are so many of us but we have lost the trust in our common sense and innate sense of justice. It is a question of retraining ourselves, or de-training. This knowledge, like the knowledge of how to take care of our own health and everything else to do with our essential needs, should be taught in school + a bit of Maths and English, and anything else should be about following our curiosity and the fun of creating, imho. I digress.
          In your last sentence, do you mean that the community granted the councilors priviledges by voting for them (?); and then they must pay for these priviledges (?) through which benefit?.

          • De-programming is the hard part as you need to live in the moment and stop your sub conscious programming (atuto-pilot mode!) and then consciously retrain in the new behaviour until that becomes your new subconscious programming…
            Anyone granted a privilege by society need to provide equal consideration for that privilege… i.e. those who have privilege must compensate those who do not for being granted that privilege…

  11. Hello Marc,
    What must I have satisfied before I start serving Notice1/Caution Notice to my Coucil (re council tax)?
    Should I first point out that I disagree with their reply to my FOI request?
    Should I have first given my rebuttal points in writing and given them a chance to reply, before serving them a caution notice?
    When is it time to serve Notice number 1?
    I want to make sure that I have done the preliminary steps correctly.

  12. Marc,
    Have there ever been instances of people being trialed in court for non payment of council Tax and found guilty and liable to pay council tax, and if so, wouldnt that count as case law precedent, albeit judged by misinformed judges. ?

  13. Hi Marc/ Brian

    I saw this in Britannica’s section on administrative law.

    Defining principles:

    One of the principle objectives of administrative law is to ensure efficient, economical and just administration.
    A system of administrative law that impedes or frustrates administration would clearly be bad, and so, too, would be a system that results in injustice to the individual. But to judge wether administrative law helps or hinders effective administration or works in such a way to deny justice to the individual involves an examination of the ends that public administration is supposed to serve, as well as the means that it employs.

    There is plenty out there showing us how it should work, but not enough showing how it isn’t.
    That has to change, and with you guidance it is starting to happen.
