If you say so. And if your legal advice is correct that is all very nice in theory but all I do know is that they froze my bank account and there was diddly squat I could do about it. Me having a hissy fit in the bank and saying 'but you cant do that, it was more than 6 years ago' would have achieved nothing but made me look stupid and as if i were trying to evade paying my dues.

Maybe so, but they still managed to do it jeanette. So the end result was the same. Do you think i should have sued them or something then?
In the end I owed them the money so getting on my high horse and refusing to pay it on principle because it was more than 6 years ago would be pretty pointless and just make me look like a bludger anyway.

If you are planning on staying away for 6 years, even if you dont like it here, just to avoid paying a council tax bill then that is obviouly your choice. We would have to agree to disagree on whether it is worth it on that one.

If more people were prepared to stand up to things out of principle then the country wouldn't be in the state it is in today.

As for looking like a bludger. Who cares what other people will think about you? How are their thoughts going to affect your life?

I would rather have a country filled with scotsdownunder, than people like you , who seemed to think it''s OK to shun one's responsibilities. That is why the country is in the state its in today, going back to earlier quote 'TAKE PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY'.

I had always figured I would make the move to OZ and pay off all of my debts. Now I realize that this is just crazy talk.

I will not worry about any phone calls over in OZ or any knocks on the door and I will sleep very peacefully each night safe in the knowledge that all of the suckers left back in blighty will be dealing with these debts for me!

I feel like a new man - a young buck - Thanks guys (and ladies) - I owe you all big time

Enjoy yourself on the beaches, but when a love one dies or a big family gathering happens and you can't return because of your debts, it may not be quite so funny.Save the whip round and concentrate on paying off YOUR DEBTS!!!
And here we have another load of baloney. You can return whenever you want as long as the debt is not to the govt - tax bills etc. You cannot get credit here for 6 years but its not a civil matter so no one other than the bank cares. Oh, apart from some of the people on here. ;-)

Where did I say it's OK to shun responsibility? I am merely talking about the legalities from the perspective of an ex-copper, rather than getting all emotional about it. You on the other hand are talking a load of overly emotive, guilt ridden crap.

If you had bothered reading thread, you would realise jeanette is trying to evade paying council tax. If you want to pipe up at least get the facts straight. Fact its not that jeanette can't afford to pay, they just dont want to. The two things that are unavoidable in this life- DEATH AND TAXES.

Oh my god, with people like you enforcing the law, what hope is there for the country. The only hope is you saying EX, I wonder why was that, did you find it too hard staying within the law????As an EX-copper you of all people should know you dont mess with the government. Oh sorry is that a dirty word to you, not sure how you manage to get round, with that big chip on your shoulder.
