Abstract:In this article the author considers the recent House of Lords' decision in Jackson v Attorney-General and the issues it throws up about the sovereignty of parliament and the paradox of that sovereignty. The author also argues that some of their Lordships seem quietly intent on accelerating the United Kingdom's shift to a new rule of recognition.
