I've read in numerous blogs and heard from a few people that common law is more important than statute law in the UK, and that UK citizens can claim common law rights in some cases for their benefit.
According to one of the people I spoke with many moons ago, it requires opting out fully with the help of a legal professional; but that may have been their choice.
According to some blogs you can simply claim common law rights in a court.
However, I've not been able to find a trustworthy answer or explanation about what that would entail.
Can a UK citizen claim common law rights in a UK court?
If they can, would it change anything?
