Although the court sympathized with the Prime Minister`s comments and saw that the consequences of his arguments had better economic meaning overall, it could not ignore the agreement that the parties had actually reached. Inconsistency means that two clauses cannot be read reasonably and could effectively qualify each other. If the clauses treat the same or similar problem only differently, they are not necessarily inconsistent, so they can both be used to interpret the document, with unintended consequences. In Morris v Baron and Co  AC 1, Morris agreed Baron and Company 500 pieces of Blue Serge on terms stipulated in the written contract (so that the written requirements of Section 4 of the Property Act 1893 (UK)) gave rise to difficulties, the parties pursued each other and eventually their actions were compromised by a verbal agreement, according to which Baron-Company should already obtain compensation for defective deliveries, it should be free to accept other deliveries at their discretion and pay the corresponding amounts. Before the House of Lords, the question was whether one of the agreements was applicable: Graw S, An Introduction to the Law of Contract (1998), 3rd Ed, Lawbook Company Information Services, North Ryde, 322 – 323. This is at odds with data 1189 and 1191 associated with the event. For weeks, the information from Kuala Lumpur was at best inconsistent and contradictory and, at worst, corrupt. The crucial question is whether what has been agreed is “totally incompatible” with the first treaty or whether it goes to the root of the first treaty to unload it completely; or if there has been a variation that qualifies or amends certain provisions of the first contract, but which, on the other hand, leaves the rest on foot. As Lord Sumner said in British -Beningtons Ltd v. North West Cachar Tea Co Ltd  AC 48, this is the central point: the incoherent adjective was first used in the 1640s, with the feeling of “disagreement on substance or form”. Entering its roots, more consistently, the word literally means “not consistent.” Behaviour, results in laboratory experiments and your cooking skills could all be described as inconsistent if they are irregular, stained and difficult to predict. The fact that God is supposed to create men who are sinners by nature is contrary to his parental character.
When one scientist does an experiment and gets a result, and the other does it and gets a contrary result, it is an example of a situation where the results are inconsistent. In this case, the judgment considered whether the main contractual document or any other document it contains was a standard document, with some documents still taking precedence over standard agreements. It was not disputed between the parties that Von Hamblen LJ in Alexander/West Bromwich Mortgage Co2 comfortably summarized the principles that the Tribunal should apply in cases where a contract contains a so-called “inconsistent clause” and, the defining characteristics of a term: “An inconsistent clause must contradict another notion or be at odds with it, so that the two clauses cannot seem fair…” Inconsistency only occurs if the rules cannot be read reasonably. In this case, it was found that the replacement agreement, which was totally inconsistent with the original contract, tacitly suspended it. As a result, the original contract had been discharged and was no longer enforceable. The new contract was required in writing, but it was not written and therefore was not applicable.
