Declaring Independence

#1
Just got off the phone from the land registry and discovered that the small patch of land outside my gaff actually belongs to me. Therefore, I would like to declare Independence from Great Britain and offer asylum to islamic fundamentalists. I'm hoping to form the world's smallest Islamic state, Arbyiastan. Problem is, I'm not totally clued up on teh legal means to declare Independence. Any thoughts or suggestions? Is it legally possible to do such a thing?

All answers to your question can be found in the bible that is "Passport to Pimlico".

An absolutely classic movie :D

Should read "I'll send a couple of PCSOs around to sit in a safe place whilst the new and nasty emergent hotbed of Islamic fundamentalism that is Arbyistan does exactly what it pleases until the real law arrives".

By the way Arby, I have my own prayer / bedside mat and have been known to answer to the name of Ranjit, and am very fond of the entire Muller range of snacks.

Declaring that the Mazola in your cupboard is in fact 'your oil' and no-one elses is the way to go. Furiously remonstrate that it's always been yours and will bankroll the new Republic of Arbystan.

Will this new land then sustain the 'surge', will a couple of 100 U.S Marines be able to be sustained by your greenhouse?? Or will a McDonalds fit??

Can you stop your mazola being shipped in a water bottle, once a week to the White House.

Ownership of any piece of land is useless..it is the discovery of that land being not part of the contiguous UK or whatever.. i.e. not declared in any document as being part of the ' Crown ' that counts.. more than that, of course, is the inclusion in any deed or grant of land, the rights to the resources in, on, around or under said land.. make sure you have the ownership of the 'air rights' above the land, as well, so that you can control plane traffic and be able to sell to Branson, Trump or others the right to build as big a building as possible without running afoul of zoning regulations...


There are ways to make millions on oversights like this.. Just ask " Prince " Michael of Sealand.

'Ranjit' is a predominantly Sikh name and certainly not a Muslim one. Still, who's counting eh?

Fair comment, my mistake.
Are there many cornershop locations in Arbyistan?

Is property big enough to recreate ARRSE Second Life in real world?

Hmm fundimental difference there then :) seeing as your average suicide bomber is a spinless coward and your average Sikh is a hard drinking punchy mother fcuker who will first try to drink you under the table and if that fails will either be muckers for life or offer you out and will then probably irrespective of the outcome be muckers for life.

Stereotyping me? nah got friends in both communities but I do enjoy a Sikh wedding bottle of Scotch,bottle of Vodka, bottle of martini every three spaces on the tables.

I say "Give them their own regiment" or did we do that one already?

taxi rank is this way, you say -->

If not, then I think a corner of ARRSE's Second Life island should be turned into Arbyiastan. That way you can practice with layouts and stuff - where to build air defences, brothels, pubs and barracks. You can do a computer model of how many slags you can squeeze in to one small piece of land.

Advice from Eddie Izzard

"We stole countries with the cunning use of flags. Just sail around the world and stick a flag in. "I claim India for Britain!"

And they're going, "You can't claim us, we live here! There's five hundred million of us!" -

"Do you have a flag?" -

"We don't need a bloody flag, this is our country, you b*stard!" -

"No flag, no country! You can't have one! That's the rules, that... I've just made up."

Under the new anti terror laws I've sent a couple of local council inspectors to spy through the windows of your house using CCTV. You can set up all the islamic fundamentalist states you want, but by damn you if you've bought that house in a school catchment area whilst living elsewhere simply to get your kids into a better school the whole weight of british law; thus an invasion of your new state will come down upon you! :D

Whilst I have no understanding of the legal procedures of declaring independence I do understand that, if successful, you will become a neighbour to England. As a neighbour to England there is a requirement for you to become annoying.
