Magna Carta World Tour

Ok, not quite world tour, but the Hereford Magna Carta is touring New York, Luxembourg, Malta, Portugal, China, and Singapore.

I’m excited, not only because this is an 800-year-old, literal ‘piece’ of law — one of only four surviving copies– but also because the last time English law came round these parts, they left us with s377 and other such delights of the Penal Code, which we have tweaked just a little bit so that gay sex is now sandwiched between sex with corpses and sex with animals.

The Hereford Magna Carta will be displayed at the Supreme Court building some time in November.
