It's cool for Brit snoops to break the law, says secretive spy court. Just hold on while we pull off some legal jujitsu to let MI5 off the hook...

Re: Arbitrary law is reappearing

Just as the "Supreme Court" overruled the High Court and declared itself legally superior to Parliament.

No it did not, in the sense you are suggesting, though it is in fact the superior court by definition.

It ruled that the Supreme Court, High Court, Parliament and Prime Minister were constrained by British Constitution and Law.

It was a ruling that the Prime Minister was not above either.
