Simon/Rupert, there's the thing, when you get lawyers involved, they get a 
bit too fancy, and everyone involved gets unnecessarily anxious. I'd prefer 
to get given an orange and take my chances with the repercussions than try to 
anticipate and cover every eventuality in advance.

Unfortunately, plain engish is rarely unambiguous. Youy should see what the 
plain english people did to the Scottish High Hedges guidance, it probably 
triggered 20 or 30 appeals that were bound to fail (and did) under the 
wording of the Act.

Be careful about giving plain English to lawyers:

“I give you this orange.”

Legal translation:

Know all the persons by these presents that I hereby give, grant, 
bargain, sell, release, convey, transfer, and quitclaim all my right, 
title, interest, benefit, and use whatever in, of, and concerning this 
chattel, known as an orange, or Citrus orantium, together with all the 
appurtenances thereto of skin, pulp, pip, rind, seeds, and juice, to 
have and to hold the said orange together with its skin, pulp, pip, 
rind, seeds, and juice, for his own use and behoof, to himself and his 
heirs, in fee simple forever, free from all liens, encumbrances, 
easements, limitations, restraints, or conditions whatsoever, any and 
all prior deeds, transfers, or other documents whatsoever, now or 
anywhere made, to the contrary notwithstanding, with full power to bite, 
cut, suck, or otherwise eat the said orange or to give away the same, 
with or without its skin, pulp, pip, rind, seeds, or juice.

Happy new year to you all,

Simon
