Schrödinger’s Brexit

On new metaphorical applications of the Schrödinger’s Cat thought-experiment or joke and the need for a new legal test case, in the context of #Brexit


Until an observation forces the system into one of the two equally probable cat-life eigenstates, the box contains the linear superposition of half a dead cat, and half a live cat.

Before we get close again to a default, no-deal Brexit, perhaps next time with no extension on offer, it’d be nice to discover the British PM’s as-yet-undisclosed belief as to the correct answer to an unresolved constitutional question. That question is what the constitutional requirements are for revoking the Article 50 notice already given.

A key question within that is whether there would need to be a new Act of Parliament before the PM could revoke Article 50 notice. What does the PM think is the answer to that? It’s not at all clear from the news what she thinks.

Police Scotland doesn’t record its own hate incidents

My report dated 4th October 2018 to Police Scotland of its own hate crime, in the form of a poster bearing Police Scotland’s logo that uses hate speech against religious people, is published here: Police Scotland’s hate crime.

Subsequent email correspondence from Police Scotland to myself in response to my hate crime report, consisting principally of what I refer to as standard fob-off emails 1 and 2, and from me in reply to Police Scotland’s two fob-off emails, is published here: Police Scotland’s bid to wriggle out of hate crime bust.

This morning, I received a typed letter from Police Scotland, by Recorded delivery.

This is what today’s letter said:-

Subject: EMAIL your Trans consultation – DEADLINE EXTENDED

The Government Transgender consultation website has been so overwhelmed with responses they have extended the deadline to 12 noon today. And we can see that slipping out as well. So whatever time you receive this, as the advert says, just do it. 
Don’t bother with their website. Email your response.

ORIGINAL POST – MY RESPONSE TO THE CONSULTATION

The government’s consultation about the Gender Recognition Act closes on Friday this week at 23:00.  If you care (and you should), please don’t forget to contribute a response in time. Continue reading

What a difference a day made!

Today is the centenary of the birth of my father, Dennis Allman.

Lee v Asher’s – saved in the nick of time

For want of a nail the shoe was lost.
For want of a shoe the horse was lost.
For want of a horse the rider was lost.
For want of a rider the message was lost.
For want of a message the battle was lost.
For want of a battle the kingdom was lost.
And all for the want of a horseshoe nail.

How easily it could have gone the other way!

 

A race against time

This post is made firstly to the glory of God and in thanks to Him, and secondly in loving thanks to John F. Larkin QC, presently and at all relevant times the Attorney General for Northern Ireland, for his willing instrumentality, skilful and timely, in what I believe to have been a gracious plan of God’s.  Continue reading

Police Scotland’s hate crime

Following the Reverend David Robertson’s excellent example, along with at least one other person so far, I have reported to Police Scotland a hate crime committed by Police Scotland itself.  I used the online form that is here.   I encourage you all to do the same, even if you don’t live in Scotland.  (Read on to find out why you don’t have to live in Scotland to report the crime.)

The hate crime concerned is the printing and display of the poster depicted.  The victims of the hate crime are the people of faith against whom this intimidating, threatening, offensive, stereotyping, alarming and distressing hate-speech poster incites the reader to religious hatred.

I actually reported the poster twice, because the online form’s design compelled this: once in my capacity as a witness of the crime, and a second time in my capacity as a victim of the same crime.  (I am both.)

THIS IS WHAT I WROTE …  Continue reading
