This story is awesome. The tiny island of Forvik, off the Shetland islands in the UK has declared itself a crown dependency and no longer under the sovereignty of the UK, or the EU.
I forgot to mention it has a population of 1. Everyone once in awhile someone like this pops up and they're called a kook or whatever. Maybe he is kooky. I like to think he's part of a larger movement to move away from centralized statist government and back towards a more traditional social contract.
A picture of our nice new tax free haven.
Good luck and Godspeed to tiny Forvik.
UPDATE: Commenter A Forvik Citizen informs me that the above is not a picture of Forvik, but of a place called Weisal. I assume he's correct, but I assumed the media was correct when they placed the photo with the story. Mistake #1 on my part -- trusting without verifying the mainstream media.
