I am old and now seriously ill. I cannot die without making clear to you, that you have broken your oath to us your people.
- from Elisabeth Beckett's last letter to the Queen, 21st January, 2009
It is with great sadness that we share the news of the passing of Mrs Elisabeth Beckett after her fight against leukemia. Elisabeth was the daughter of a High Court judge. The fact she managed one last shot across the bows of the nation's ever-dwindling sovereignty, says so much about her steadfastness.
She went on the offensive when she discovered that her Council Tax bill was being used as a vehicle to extract money from her (and every other resident of this nation) for the European Union inspired Regional Assemblies. She took a one woman's legal stance, using her profound knowledge of the British Constitution against her local Eden District Council, and refused to pay her Council Tax whilst under the threat of bankruptcy. Elizabeth launched four legal cases against the government citing Erosion of the Constitution, Breach of Contract, Breach of Trust and for Treason and Legal Fraud. She also took out an injunction against Prime Minister Gordon Brown for Treason against the British People.
In 2007, Namaste Magazine launched an appeal for funds to avert her bankruptcy, which was successful. The funds enabled her to start the process to appeal to the High Court. Whilst working with her she became our latter day Boudica. The depth of Elisabeth's Constitutional knowledge coupled with her courage and her unfailing determination to protect our country and its people from the loss of British Sovereignty against the relentless ever invading totalitarian powers of the EU, is testament to her uniqueness.
It has been an honour and privilege to have known and worked with her. Thank you, dear Elisabeth, for your sterling efforts. You will be very sadly missed.
All who read this obituary can only have the utmost respect and admiration for such a great lady and the passionate, abiding love which she had for this country and its people.
