Zahme dressur. Административная грация.

Министерство юстиции Великобритании опубликовало список 309 првонарушений, которые перестанут быть подсудны. По ошибке в этот список был включен акт 1848 года  "о предательстве". Согласно тому акту одни лишь мечтания о свержении монархии или развязывание войны против Королевы караются пожизненным заключением.
Правительство подтвердило, что закон 1848 года остается в силе.
Всем понятно?
Вот сам акт:

If any person whatsoever shall, within the United Kingdom or without, compass, imagine, invent, devise, or intend to deprive or depose our Most Gracious Lady the Queen, from the style, honour, or royal name of the imperial crown of the United Kingdom, or of any other of her Majesty's dominions and countries, or to levy war against her Majesty, within any part of the United Kingdom, in order by force or constraint to compel her to change her measures or counsels, or in order to put any force or constraint upon or in order to intimidate or overawe both Houses or either House of Parliament, or to move or stir any foreigner or stranger with force to invade the United Kingdom or any other of her Majesty's dominions or countries under the obeisance of her Majesty, and such compassings, imaginations, inventions, devices, or intentions, or any of them, shall express, utter, or declare, by publishing any printing or writing ... or by any overt act or deed, every person so offending shall be guilty of felony, and being convicted thereof shall be liable ... to be transported beyond the seas for the term of his or her natural life.
