Subject: RE: BS: Brexit 'Take Back Control' D Cummings
I noticed a Johnson defender making that distinction this morning, Raindog. The two words illegal and unlawful have been used interchangeably for several days in much of the media and by politicians, so I'd suggest that trying to hang on to the distinction in the current context is, for now, fruitless. We all know what we mean. I've been saying unlawful, simply because that's what the justices said. But I'm not that bothered.
