someone obviously failed reading comprehension in 3rd grade. go back, read it again. if you still dont understand what he is saying, give up and ignore the topic. no its not. hell, you do realize that they are practicing saharia law NOW dont you? technically, there is nothing to stop them from doing exactly what they want to do without the parts they cannot. then you dont understand what they are asking for. just to reiterate from the article... they would not be able to do anything that violates the laws of britian or wales. their laws would basically have the same consideration as a contract. if parts of the contract violate the law, a judge can throw out the whole contract or the parts that violate the laws. there isnt anything preventing them from doing what they wish now as if it were a contract, they just want some form of official recognition that what they are doing. read the article again people.
