Please provide legal references and relevant precedents (in the post-Napoleonic era). I would especially be interested in court decisions where a so-called "unequal treaty" was adjudged to be invalid . . . . . and the details of that decision. I am personally unaware of any such decisions, so please enlighten me.


Here's a list

Well if you lose a war, you're gonna get pound in the ass.


You have entirely misread Hartzell's point. Try again please.


My bad, was pretty tired when I read that post ><

Treaties rarely go to courts anyway, when signed by both parties they're binding legal documents. It was called unequal because it turned China from a Superpower to a semi-colonial status.

I was always under the impression that referenda around the world were generally a 2/3 thing. Is it 50% here? Because if 2/3 is required and the DPP crowd have a permanent 46%, give or take, it's a non-starter.


As regard to the result of voting for a proposal of referendum, if the number of voters reaches not less than 1/2 of the total persons having the right of voting in the country, municipality or county (city) and more than 1/2 of the valid ballots agree, the proposal is adopted.

If the number of voters does not reach the quantity prescribed in the preceding Paragraph or the consenters are not more than 1/2 of the valid ballots, the proposal is vetoed.
