I just wanted to pose a question to lawyers on here.
In the event of a British Libertarian-inclined government being elected, with a good enough majority, and taking over the administration of the UK, what is the position of all these various bodies out of reach of democratic or any normal form of civilised control, of we decide we don’t like them and want to close them?
Do their banks (they must have some) have private contractual obligations to “pay wages and salaries” and “honour debits”, regardless of what the War Secretariat might want to do?
Would the administration have to “administer” their banks also simultaneously?
How ideally might it be arranged that all previous-government-patronage-scumbag-apparatuses’ wages/salaries/ utility-bills/building-rents/pension-conts etc could simply “cease to be paid forthwith”, without getting somehow at the banks themselves, and what legal ground would we be on?
We’d clearly be in breach of fraud or civil tort Law if we failed to pay legitimate private suppliers of goods, taxis, prostitutes etc, up to invoices rendered before the date of shut-down: whether this would include public utilities is a matter of libertarian philosophy right now, given their hand-in-glove-relationship with the State as it stands.
I’m just asking.
