They can't. Article 15 of EC261 prohibits carriers from trying that trick.

Note that this speaks of 'damages' rather than compensation? Is this relevant?

Thank you everyone. The amount of support that I've received is really helpful.
Like JPears has said it is truly disappointing that the Courts allow Ryanair to get away with their all too predictable nonsense (and all the more frustrating and stressful for it). I expected Ryanair to come up with all sorts of delaying tactics but I also thought that the Court would handle the ESCP a bit more deftly.
In my claim I actually referenced Article 15 of EC 261 and made the point that under this law Ryanair's T&Cs couldn't restrict the time to bring a claim to 2 years. I also referenced More v KLM which should have settled the matter regarding their 2 year defence. But it seems that rather than reading my claim and taking notice of these points the judge simply allowed Ryanair's waffling to muddy the waters enough and scheduled an oral hearing. I can't even find out whether it was Ryanair or the judge that asked for the oral hearing since the Court hasn't sent me Ryanair's answer form.
Thank you for the links Centipede100. And the clarification that there is a difference between damages and compensation. I thought that I'd read that somewhere before.
