David Cameron’s performance on TV pondering the Magna Carta will quite probably have a knock-on effect for notaries like myself with more queries from some individuals calling themselves Freeman of the Land and who want various bits of paper notarising under which they claim independence from the Laws of England, exemption from Council Tax, speeding tickets and the like.

We have been over this before, and most notaries will be approached on a reasonably regular basis with some document or other being a variation on the above themes.   I now refer these claimants here which hopefully summarises the position pretty well.  Suffice to say, I cannot notarise their documents.
