Definition of FREEMAN & FREEMEN please

Waiting for an internal review by Supreme Court of the United Kingdom of their handling of this request.

I am the agent for the fictional strawman that was created with the name Sarah Goldsmith

Dear Supreme Court of the United Kingdom,

On 25 July 2012 I sent a freedom of information request to you via whatdotheyknow.com. Despite a number of reminders being sent to you, my request was totally ignored.

I have been generous. I have waited 2 years and come to the conclusion that I need ask again in the hope that someone, somewhere is aware of the Freedom Of Information Act and your legal obligation to respond.

The request I made back then is as follows:

"The Magna Carta 1297 in 'Confirmation of Liberties' ,SI states {amongst other things} "We have granted also, and given to all the Freemen of our Realm, for Us and our Heirs for ever, these Liberties under-written, to have and to hold to them and their
Heirs, of Us and our Heirs for ever"

In addition, in SXXIX 'Imprisonment, &c. contrary to Law.
Administration of Justice' it states "NO Freeman shall be taken or imprisoned, or be disseised of his Freehold, or Liberties, or free Customs, or be outlawed, or exiled, or any other wise destroyed; nor will We not pass upon him, nor [X1condemn him,] but by lawful judgment of his Peers, or by the Law of the Land. We will sell to no man, we will not deny or defer to any man either Justice or
Right."

Therefore, in accordance with the FOI Act, please provide me with your recorded definition of "Freeman" and "Freemen" as mentioned in this act."

Thank you kindly,

Yours, in eager anticipation, once again,

Sarah Goldsmith

Dear Supreme Court of the United Kingdom. Your ignorance regarding this matter disgusts me!

@A Clerk: A Freeman was historically a person who was not a Serf or otherwise 'Bound' to the service of another, nothing more.

Currently it is a purely honorary title, with a few historical 'rights' that vary from place to place - such as the right to drive Geese over London Bridge if you are a Freeman of the City of London. As far as I am aware such historic 'rights' have not been exercised often, largely for reasons of common sense - and in the case of driving Geese because closing London Bridge to traffic would not be in the public interest at rush hour.

Other than that honorary recognition of service the title is meaningless , since Society has advanced beyond the Feudal Model. Being a Freeman currently confers no legal benefits or privileges over any other member of Society.

In the later 'Freeman on the Land' school of thought the term is used to refer to individuals who mistakenly believe that they are subject only to historic 'common law' and able to 'opt out' of modern laws.

Within the framework of the Freedom of Information Act 2000, the original request could (if it had been responded to) be validly refused on the grounds that the requested information was already publically available in any legal dictionary/decent encyclopedia - or via any internet search facility.

Krysti/Interested Readers:

For reference, there was no Declaration of Independence signed on July 4 1933 -and the Declaration of Independence (DoI) signed on July 4 1776 only relates to the United States (or Colonies as they were prior to signing the Declaration and subsequently winning the War of Independence).

There were however a few interesting things happening that day, a Tuesday, including the creation of this art work and the resignation of the Prime Minster of Southern Rhodesia.

https://www.loc.gov/item/2016682470/.

The closest real change to governance of the US around that time, to the reference Krysti 'quotes' or mentions, would be the 20th Amendment to the US Constitution ratified by Congress on January 23 1933. However like the DoI the US Constitution only applies to the US not the UK, which has no equivalent documents.

Any decent history textbook, or a few seconds on the internet, will confirm.
