‘English law on illegality in private law (for example, illegal contracts) has long been regarded as both difficult and unsatisfactory. In July 2016, the Supreme Court, sitting as a panel of nine, looked at the area again in Patel v Mirza. Here £620,000 had been paid for the defendant to bet on share prices using inside information (thereby committing the crime of insider dealing). The agreement was not carried out because the information was not forthcoming.’
