"Mud Island" Good one!
Apparently, it's the Saffa term for the UK. Ungrateful buggers, especially when we've given them bar work for years! That remark will get me in sooo much poop with the OH.

Matter of interest what decisions by this court do EFers think were bad for the UK?
Which European court exactly?

You know that is a blanket term that requires absolute definition as some courts are part of the EU and some aren't.

Specifically with regards to pre-Brexit propaganda, it was the ECJ (EU) and ECtHR (non EU) decisions regarding Abu Hamza that stuck in the public craw and consciousness. As it was the latter that repeatedly blocked Hamza's extradition to the US, it was a non EU court decision, but try explaining that to the man on the street!

We have a very recent and fine example of this confusion in the mind of the populous, and how the reporting of this is massively distorted in the media. These stories were published on the same day regarding the same court decision. When I court decision can be reported in such different ways, how is your average joe going to know what to believe?
