I love this from a Guido Fawkes gimp:

The activist lawyers who brought this case chose to not fight it in London because they knew they would lose under English law.

They had to retreat to Scotland which has a very different interpretation of constitutional matters.


"retreat" lol. It's a higher court, the English courts weren't sitting, and Joanna Cherry is a Scottish QC. Apart from that ... sure.


Something that is deemed unconstitutional in Scotland can be determined to be lawful in England.

Well indeed. And as a legal expert just confirmed on BBC, in that case it would still be unlawful...
