CDF rejects SSPX second response
I have just received a copy of 'Bouscaren and Ellis' and it would appear that i was mistaken in equivalencing Canon 188 and the other canons, however there is still a problem with the idea that they automatically lose jursidiction and thus we can disobey them:
i)the question of supplied jurisdiction, and
ii)what exactly 'publicly fallen away from the catholic faith' means, the problem is that it is very problematic to presume someone has publicly fallen away from the Catholic faith because we believe them to have stated heresy, when they still declare themselves Catholic, hold to many of the teachings, frequent the sacraments and appear to exercise their office. In such a case one would need to be absolutely certain that our interpretation of what they said as heresy was the right one, that there were no absolutely no excusatory circumstances and that the person really meant it. It is extremely difficult to do so.  Further we would then have to be certain that jurisdiction was not supplied if we intended to disobey them. Lastly it becomes somewhat problematic to say someone has publicly abandoned the catholic faith if out of all of the people that saw this event we are the only ones who believe they have done so. One shouldn't take this too far as it is true many catholics have lost the faith but still one must consider it.

And there can be no question of attempting to apply this to the Pope as the article itself makes quite clear. I am merely speaking of bishops or priests.
