Christ, what an asshole legal system. Aren’t they reforming this mess?
Careful, there, Antinous, just imagine what the brits will do to you when they catch you libeling libel itself…
Unlikely. Our new masters very much like this sort of thing. It keeps the proles in place and the lawyers happy with big fat cheques from foreign oligarchs (you know the type: extorters, murderers, torturers et al) suing in London.
You can find out about the “el Naschie” problem at el Naschie Watch which has long accounts about how he was able to play the refs (such a threatening legal action against universities) to build up a seeming scientific reputation based on crackpottery. It is a fairly long story so star with the introduction.
Yes we are reforming this mess
Is it time to throw Great Britain into the sea?
Great Britain makes up part of the British Isles. Conclusion: someone tried this stunt already but it didn’t have the desired effect?
Wow, two insanities combining. English tort law, and “you can’t spell Elsevier without EVIL.”
