    It sounds like a sort of clear statement rule.

    As I recall, British judges would also apply such a law if it seems the Parliament was acting against natural law or some long held liberty of the people. A common sense reading of the legislation, e.g., might seem to suggest that. But, since Parliament surely wouldn’t violate such a thing unless they was crystal clear about doing so, the judges would avoid that if possible. Don’t know if this author covers that.
