Constitution Halts SheriffSubmitted by Ireland4Paul on Fri, 05/11/2012 - 12:15
I have been asked on occasion on this site about the Irish Constitution and how it protects the rights of the Irish people. Ireland is a common law jurisdiction and common law and the constitution of the Irish Republic takes precedence over commercial/civil law. As such, any man made laws in Ireland, which are known as Acts or Statutes, are only enforceable by law with the consent of the governed. The Irish police swear an oath to uphold common law. The following is a video of the Irish people exercising their constitutional rights and preventing the eviction of a homeowner who hadn't repaid his mortgage. Watch as the Deputy Sheriff has no choice but to leave and how informed this Irish man is on his rights!
Also, in the last few months in Ireland, the government tried to introduce a household tax for homeowners in Ireland as part of a new "Act". The consent to this tax was registration for the tax on their official website. Two thirds of the population didn't register and therefore didn't consent to the tax. Here's a video showing how we protest in Ireland! :)
