Recap of the cases up to now

What is Whitley v Chappell an example of The literal rule
give a brief overview of Whitley v Chappell D was charged under a section that made it an offence to "impersonate anybody entitled to vote" The person he had impersonated was dead. Therefor the courts found him not guilty as in literal terms the other person wasn't entitled to vote
What happened with Paul chambers Charged under terrorism laws for posting on social media he was going to blow an airport " sky high " ( This can be connected with conviction / sentence appeals )
Why could the case Fisher v Bell show an example of the literal rule to be an absurdity D was not charged under the restriction of offensive weapons act 1957. Because in literal terms the knives were an "invitation to treat" not a offer to sell he was found not guilty despite the act trying to prevent just this sort of behavior
