Interesting. When I quoted an Australian law professor in the context of
defining common law contract terms, Rjack took exception, because he
thought such things are determined by the US Circuit courts.  Now he has
reversed himself and suddenly English common law is viable again.

What new profound insights will we he provide us with next? Stay tuned!
