The Law!

British Law?

The law is an ass . . . in British English.

Does this mean that the law in Britain is a stupid donkey? Not that donkeys are actually stupid. But what are their putative characteristics to which the law's characteristics can be compared? Surely nothing very positive!

Dickens suggests by "idiot" that "ass" signifies "idiocy," but is Dickens the original voice of this so-called proverb?

Possibility that is correct and look what happens when people are deciding and voting for the right of abortion, gay marriage, and freedom of expression in favor of desires and passion from their individual souls. We should thanks to John Milton' s Paradise Lost, and truly part of Satan psychedelic rock! But some intellectual respect from Master Charles Dickens say:"The law is an ass, an idiot". And also Christ said: With men is impossible, but with (YHWH)-God is possible. *Bones*
