*shocked gasp* The authorities are refusing to abide by the Magna Carta? Next thing, they'll be letting shops sell cloth less than two ells wide.

Two notes to step on your joke:

1) the clause she quotes ONLY applies to her betters, so unless she's a Baroness, she's out of luck
2) as the article points out, the clause was repealed and never made it into English law anyway

"All fish-weirs shall be removed from the Thames, the Medway, and throughout the whole of England, except on the sea coast"

i don't know how that applies, but give it a try if you want

Oh, my dear... you think Magna Carta applied to regular people?

She must have meant the MAGA Carta, which is actually a drunk Trumper drinking Mexican beer.

Looking forward to seeing her on "Can't pay? We'll take it away." While also puking what repo people get away with in the UK.
 
2020-11-25 11:00:08 AM  
I imagine she has been coasting through life so far on white privilege and marginal good looks and this current inconvenience is just shattering her world view. Sad to see someone go insane at such an young age.

Ah, the old 'how I imagine the Magna Carta/Constitution to mean' stunt.

She isn't very cunning.

Where's the GoFundStupidy account?

Not following the rules and being punished is not 'oppression' or 'mah rights bean violated.'

Wow.  The UK is a modern country.

Huh, didn't know UK also had "Sovereign Citizens".
 
2020-11-25 11:06:27 AM  
I must say, however, that this British version of a SovCit is much cuter than the SovCits we get over here in the States.

Or should I say "Colonies", since she seems to be stuck in the Dukedom and Fiefdom era of history. I suppose she should go take it up with the Shire Reeve.

She's cute, so I guess she has a point. Show bob's.

Quoting laws wrong or badly. We have those over here. They like to call themselves Sovereign Citizens. The rest of us call them idiots.

Well if I ever have to go in front of one of them judges with the yellow fringe again I am just gonna start using the Hammurabi code and dazzle them with my legal knowledge until they let me go and give me gas money.

FTFA: "However, the law she cited - Clause 61, offering 25 barons the right to lawfully dissent or rebel if they thought they were being governed unjustly - was repealed and never incorporated into English law."

See kids?  History class may come in handy later in life, so PAY ATTENTION!

That's right: Always "Magna Carta", never "The Magna Carta"

Is the Salon owner a Baron in Medieval England? No? Then it doesn't apply.

FFS people like this are so dumb. Which Magna Carta is she referring to? There were at least 5 versions over the years. There is practically nothing left of any of them as their provisions were almost all repealed and/or replaced in the 19th and 20th centuries. Oh, and of course they only set out rights as between the barons and the King. Everyone else could basically go fark themselves.
 
2020-11-25 12:40:33 PM  
This is why you run your stupid legal loophole theory by a lawyer before you commit a crime.

And I'm pretty sure that those rights are also embodied elsewhere in statute.

What if I were to quote from the Bhagavad-Gita? Would I get charged with a war crime against humanity?

Lady is using the wrong source.  She needs to say she's quoting the 12th commandment or something.
