I forgot to provide reference material in yesterday's "Day of
Judgement on mortgages" e-mail.
First of all, there's my attempt a full-ish explanation: http://info.fmotl.com/Mortgages.htm
And then there the website of those at the sharp end of using the
Registration Gap argument:
And finally (on that site), the latest judgement (breakthrough
... where you'll see that Designated Civil Judge HHJ Barry Cotter
had to bow to the previous judgement of Designated Civil Judge HHJ
Philip ("Get them buses out! Oooooh I 'ate yew ...") ... Butler.
We've learned quite few trivia, recently.
First of all, the 'rank' of "Designated Civil Judge" is a new one,

... which means it remains in place until voided by a
Higher Star Chamber. (So don't go around shouting "That Order is
void!" ... until you have appealed it, and had it quashed)
An erroneous Order issued by an "UNlimited Jurisdiction" is "void"
... because there isn't really anywhere higher to take it. BUT YOU'D
BETTER MAKE SURE THAT IT IS ERRONEOUS ... and the best thing to do
would be to try to have it declared void (by either an Archangel or
