The current UK requirement about who can register a death is very specific. The registrant must either be: (our emphasis)
- a relative who was present at the death
- a relative present during the person’s last illness
- a relative living in the district where the death took place
- anyone else present at the death
- an owner or occupier of the building where the death took place and who was aware of the death
- the person arranging the funeral (but not the funeral director).
It’s not hard to see the rationale for this. Once you remove all these requirements and start allowing people in the commercial business of death, who will have no connection whatsoever to the deceased or their family, the capacity for malpractice of various kinds to enter the process increases considerably. What good is served by increasing that risk? And what benefit accrues?
I got this from a friend a little early and the Aspects of Mercantilist Maritime Law Clicked into place.
“Already the transfer of wealth plot is starting to unfold…
Small businesses to get Govt loan to help cash flow in these difficult times !! But of course these business will struggle to repay when things do pick up.
By contrast big companies ( Govt gave example of British airways )will be assisted by Govt buying shares.(eg BAILOUT). But as the cash influx is used up creating losses this will result in a decline in net assets & share value. This will result in a greater fall in share value for existing shareholders (pension funds etc) than it will for the Govt new shares created. When things pick up the Govt will sell its shareholding lauding the recovery of its investment but forgetting to mention the interest on the debt taken to finance the original purchase. That interest will be the ongoing burden on taxpayers.
So small co’s burdened with debt & interest. Big companies continue paying bonuses etc to directors etc.
More to come I think !!”
Off Guardian on the technical aspects of declaring death.
Brush up your Maritime law.
Cestui Que Vie
Cestui que vie is French for he who lives. It is a legal term for an individual who is the beneficiary of a trust or insurance policy, with rights to property and the income and profits that the property provides.
BREAKING DOWN Cestui Que Vie Cestui que vie as a legal concept dates to the medieval period, specifically England. During this time, the owners of farms and other properties could be absent for extended periods of time as they traveled, whether for business or religious purposes.
The two most media-reported features of Covid19 are that it is a deadly killer – and that its ramifications are destroying the stock market investments of millions. Both of these assertions are almost universal now, and both of them are completely without foundation.
Go to the ever-informative site Wall St on Parade, and there you will find acre upon acre of facts, timings, Fed Reserve liquidity inputs and capital-loss stats proving beyond the smallest scintilla of doubt that Wall Street’s overleveraged, greedy banking firms had already landed the entire bourse in a desert of Repo Loan illiquidity.
But it’s yer Covid wot gets the blame, Guv: Covid the Destroyer of Worlds is so clever, so evil, so iniquitous in its quintessentially toxic darkness that it began to make people terrified of it before it even existed.
I just put that one out…
