This article examines the decision of the House of Lords in Total Network SL v Customs and Excise Commissioners  UKHL 19 concerning the economic torts. The House of Lords examined the tort of unlawful means conspiracy and held that "unlawful means" has a different, wider meaning in conspiracy than when it is used in the tort of causing loss by unlawful means. As a result, the importance of this tort has been elevated. It is argued here that the decision in Total leaves several questions unanswered, and the reasoning is difficult to reconcile with previous authorities, most notably OBG v Allan  UKHL 21
