One law for all in England? It seems not...

... this story really startles me; I had no idea the use of alternative legal systems was so widely entrenched in England and it would appear entirely in compliance with the principles of English law. Amazing.

I have no idea whether Scots law is similarly tolerant of such legal diversity; if it is, then I find it very disturbing.
