The Bailiffs are coming!! Erosion of The Rule of Law

A site
dedicated to exposing, and resisting, the all pervasive nanny state that is
corroding the way of life and the freedom of the people of Britain. Thanks Nanny.

 

As
the concept of personal freedom, privacy and the rule of law is worn away by
the Nanny state, so we see unscrupulous people take advantage of this erosion.

It seems that bailiffs could soon be breaking into homes, to seize goods for
credit card debts, without a court order.

Citizens Advice have stated that around 60% of bailiffs are guilty of
harassment or intimidation, while 40% misrepresent their powers of entry.

Under the Tribunals, Courts and Enforcement Bill, which is being debated in the
House of Commons, all bailiffs will be given the power to enter domestic
premises and enforce consumer credit debts, including credit card bills.

At present, only certain enforcement officers have these powers.

David Harker, chief executive of Citizens Advice, said:

Our evidence over many years shows that bailiffs

have an appalling track record of abusing

their existing powers against vulnerable people.

They are often abusive and aggressive

and use threats of violence and prison to

pressurise people into paying lump sums they cannot afford.”

Citizens Advice said that many private debt enforcers act almost as a law unto
themselves. Checks on 500 bailiff cases revealed intimidation, harassment and
excessive fee-charging were commonplace.

The erosion of the rule of law by Nanny will have serious consequences for us
all.
