the 1215 charter was never on the statute book, it predates parliament. it was the later confirmation which was turned into a statute, and this declared magna carta to be the commom law, which is above statute law. so whatever parliament repeals from the confirmation is pointless, the whole law still exists as common law. the 1215 charter is rightly known as the 'inalienable charter'
