Brexit and the Supreme Court....how the fight to pull the trigger on Article 50 was lost (or maybe not)...

For those who have been sidetracked by Kim Woodburn's outrageous behaviour in the garish pop art-esque Big Brother House, the UK Government has lost its case in the Supreme Court over Article 50.

Here are six takeaways from the Brexit Supreme Court ruling:

  • Supreme Court judges say MPs and peers must vote on triggering Article 50 - official notice from UK to EU that the country is leaving
  • Government insists, despite defeat, that it will set in motion Article 50 by end of March
  • Judges say Government doesn't need to ask governments of Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland to set off Article 50 
  • Labour, SNP and Lib Dems demand Article 50 bill has EU divorce plan detail and make clear there will be amendments
  • Government wants simple, short, bill
  • Row over wording of Article 50 legislation will dominate for weeks. Read snap analysis here from Sky's Beth Rigby

 

Like us, I am sure you will be watching the developments unfold with keen interest as we wait to see the fallout of this landmark decision.
