Wrong again. The UK, and nations whose legal system is based on the British, has both common law and statute law. Statute law generally trumps common law.

Statute law within a common law system is not the same as civil law. The two systems as just as different between each other than each of them are with sharia law.

I disagree with forcing someone to stay in an abusive situation, like living with an abusive spouse.
The ocean, infinite to men, and the worlds beyond it, are directed by the same ordinances of the Lord. ~ I Clement 20

My only weakness is, well, never mind
