"Sunday Trading Permits - Another Jersey Scam"

Jersey Sunday trading 'is too expensive'

A Jersey shop owner has complained new States rules have made it too expensive to open on a Sunday.
New Sunday trading laws came in last year which meant shops had to prove they had fewer than 700 sq m of floor space.
Ian Rayson, who runs a off licence in St Helier, said shops had to pay an architect to draw up floor plans if they did not have the original plans.
He said that made it unprofitable for him to open on Sundays.
He said: "We only open a few Sundays during the year, but with the licence now having to cost £50 and the plan from an architect, it's made it not viable for us so we're not going to bother this year."
'Too expensive' In December the cost of a Sunday trading licence rose from £15 to £50.
The St Helier Constable, Simon Crowcroft, said: "I would sympathise if there is too much red tape and possibly that part of the law needs to be looked at."
He added: "The old system effectively meant a subsidy because it was costing us more to administer the Sunday trading as a parish than was being paid for by the shopkeepers.
"So you could argue that was unfair on the rest of the rate payers who were paying it.
"But I'm sure that's something the constables committee would be willing to review, if there's a real feeling that Sunday trading permits are too expensive."
Before the law came in last year, Jersey operated under a 50-year-old law that listed which items could be sold on a Sunday.

"Submit an Application for Registration"

Point 1 b - What is a Duty to Apply for Registration?
The word DUTY (Blacks Law Dictionary) means "A human action which is exactly conformable to Laws which require us to obey them". DUTY is sometimes synonymous with MUST, MAY, or SUBMIT. The word DUTY creates the inference that you are OBLIGED, you are never OBLIGED to do anything.

‘Submit’ means ‘to agree to bend to another’s will or to ‘leave to another’s discretion’. An agreement is a contract and must be entered into voluntarily.  If you are leaving something to someone else’s discretion, it must have been yours to begin with, right? Again it is voluntary in nature. You can never be lawfully compelled to submit.
However, as Government cannot demand anything from us as men or women, the word "DUTY" is only an offer, nothing more. It is simply an offer for you to accept!

Point 1 c - What does APPLY mean? To "APPLY/APPLICATION" literally means "TO BEG".

‘Application’ legally means ‘to beg, plead, petition, implore, entreat or request’ The assumption this creates in court is fivefold; 1) he who begs knows exactly what he is begging for, 2) he knows exactly what he is giving up for it, 3) he is acknowledging the authority to grant OR 4) he is creating it through transference, and 5) he is doing it all voluntarily.

Point 1 d - What does "REGISTRATION" mean?

‘Registration’ was historically the act of a Ship’s Captain signing over his ship and all chattel contents over to the harbour master for safekeeping. Chattel contents included the condemned, those in debt, prisoners, anything that could be bought or sold and slaves.
‘Must’ is likely their trickiest word by far. You will find it used with ‘application’, ‘submission’ and ‘registration’ extensively.  They try to use it to make you think you have an obligation to act; you do not, for under law, you are never obliged to beg.  If I tell you, “You must come to my party through the front door.” Does that create an obligation for you to come to my party? Or does it perhaps merely define conditions which have to be fulfilled in order for me to have authority over you?   If you look in Black’s Law dictionary, you find that ‘must’ is sometimes ‘synonymous with may’. When  you  take  charge  of  your  life,  there  is  no  longer  need  to  ask permission of other people or society at large. When you ask permission, you give someone veto power over your life.
Whenever you see the words Submission/Application/Registration you know you are giving away your inalienable rights and are entering into a contract. Much of the power Government has over you is a result of your actions, not theirs.
