This week, some Conservative Party MPs delivered, in sufficient number, a letter to the party's managing committee, the 1922 Committee. It expressed that they had no confidence in the Prime Minister and that the party should replace her. The timing, many have said, was a mistake, that those seeking her removal, should have waited until after the Brexit vote and attack her then, if she lost. That, it is here opined, would have defeated the purpose of this week's supposed rebellion.

The European Union (Exit) Act, as originally drawn, defined exit day as "such day as a Minister of the Crown may be regulations appoint" but that was later amended. But even now, it's not as fixed as it appears.

Perhaps the most important question arising out of the whole withdrawal issue is this. What status will EU law have, in the UK, after Exit Day?

Lost and Found: the new album from James Yang (Yang Yong Cong)

It might not look much but Australia has just thrown a huge spanner in the works of international internet retailers who want to operate in their market. Whether it sets a precedent remains to be seen but, if so, cheap goods sent from overseas might have to be a lot less cheap. At the heart of this is unproven conduct by Wiggle Limited, a UK company, which the Australian Consumer and Competition Commission (ACCC) found to be in breach of Australian law. This is a significant extra-territorial application of domestic law - and it also interferes with the right to include a choice of law and choice of jurisdiction clauses in international contracts. And as if that's not enough, the ripples reach into call-centre operations worldwide.

Australia has long been in conflict with foreign discounters marketing, amongst other things, by internet. It all started with a fight over the price of books.

Here's an interesting thing. Someone promoting themselves as "essay writing service" began, some time ago, to post messages to random bulletin boards, presumably in the hope that the expertise displayed would attract work. We make no comment except to invite you to consider whether you would be happy the quality of work you received was similar to that in the promo.

The Philippines is an astonishingly misogynistic society. It often appears as if, at every turn, the system is specifically designed to disadvantage women.
