Jurisdiction of the Court

Per Pickford LJ in Guaranty Trust Co of New York v Hannay & Co [1915] 2 KB 536 at 563:

The first and, in my opinion, the only really correct sense of the expression that the Court has no jurisdiction is that it has no power to deal with and decide the dispute as to the subject matter before it, no matter in what form or by whom it is raised. But there is another sense in which it is often used, i.e., that, although the Court has power to decide the question it will not according to its settled practice do so except in a certain way and under certain circumstances.
