All the more so that England is part of the U.K., which is part of the
E.U., but English law is emphatically not civil law.  (There was an
attempt to change this in 1236 in favor of _legitimatio per subsequens
matrimonium_, the civil rule, but the barons replied _Nolumus leges
Angliae mutare_, and that was that.)

But you, Wormtongue, you have done what you could for your true master.  Some
reward you have earned at least.  Yet Saruman is apt to overlook his bargains.
I should advise you to go quickly and remind him, lest he forget your faithful
service.  --Gandalf             John Cowan <jcowan at>
