Then you can appeal to the jury of the unlawful council tax being imposed on you.. If you have a good hearing and manage to get across all the relevant arguments it could be the big turn around we have all been hoping for..
However if you dont know all the relevant arguments i would suggest you go about it another route..
Possibly getting in touch with the council, telling them that you dont have enough money, and that you will pay them £1 a month... Then they cant take you to court because your actually making payments (I think, dont quote me on that!)..
In either case your going to want to get as much research done as you can if your going to win/get away with it...

Do I just write NO CONTRACT on it and hand It In prior to the date of summons?

I have just returned from a court appearance at the Essex Magistrates Court for non-payment of council tax, It was a most bizarre experience. My first words to the panel of 3 magistrates were "are you acting under you oath during these proceedings", but instead of the layman magistrates replying to my question - a spokeswoman who was sitting in front of their bench suddenly chimed in and said, "all magistrates take the oath of allegience". I put several questions regarding the legality of council tax to both the magistrates and the legal representative from the Thurrock Borough Council, (most of the legal reps answers consisted of "I cannot answer or I do not know "), each time I directly spoke to the magistrates the spokeswoman seemed to be doing their answering? The 3 magistrates neither spoke to me, gestured or made enquiry as to the reasons for my refusal to pay, (other than say that they had no questions for me - they did nothing). The Thurrock Council legal team were insistant that a liability order be made despite all my efforts to get a fair hearing, (which, I can assure you did not happen), and the magistrates made not attempt to question their blatant unlawful use of the law and agreed without any hesitation. To me, the whole proceeding reeked of corruption, as though the magistrates and the Thurrock Council had it all worked out between them, so as to neutralise anyone who tried to get to the truth. It seems that only Common Law intervention can provide justice in this matter. I now have a liability order, however, I will continue to research and use any lawful means I can find to stop these thieving bastards. Joe
