Arbitrary law is reappearing
Welcome to the new era of "Tudor Law". All laws, regulations, guidelines and policies are binding on the proletariat.
However, what the laws, regulations, guidelines and policies actually mean will be decided at an appropriate time by the powers that be, in a way that suits their convenience.
Just as the "Supreme Court" overruled the High Court and declared itself legally superior to Parliament.
The funny thing about really well managed coups d'etat is that most people don't even notice them happening.
