"Statutes & Prison"
A Guest Posting By Cyril
I believe that experience trumps theory every time, so with that in mind, I took my imprisonment as an opportunity to put into practice my deductions leading on from the notion that we are governed by consent.
I found it curious that a commercial term (franchise) should be used for voting so I did some research.
by government on individual or corporation, and
which does not belong to citizens generally of common
privilege of voting in public elections.
I kept good humour but thought ‘bollocks’ as I was then ushered into the processing room.
I told the PO who had come to the cell that my non- compliance was nothing personal, he accepted this in good part, and after a bit of chit chat it transpired that the PO’s father knew my sister, so as we were getting along amiably I took the opportunity to ask him what would have happened if I had refused to speak or leave the holding cell. He said that they would have called the police who would have taken me down to the police station cells to serve my time.
I asked if he was joking, he replied no that was procedure, I asked if that had happened before and he said not to his knowledge.
