Remain Oaf’s Pompous Brexit Whinge

screen-shot-2016-10-04-at-16-11-18

On Sunday Theresa May warned that city law firms seeking to block Brexit through the courts are “not standing up for democracy, they’re trying to subvert it”. The original letter sent around Europhile lawyers was pompous enough. But check this out from Edwin Coe LLP, who are representing hairdresser Deir Santos in his sad attempt to JR Article 50:

“Mr Santos is asserting his constitutional right to challenge the authority of the Government to exercise a right to serve the Article 50 notice. To accuse him and others of being anti-democratic is both wrong and inflammatory. It will merely serve to increase the heat in this debate which turns on simple legal and constitutional principles. The Government should not criticise the challenge but welcome it because it will give certainty to the Article 50 process. This is about the rule of law.  That issue should stand above all others. It is a principle that the Government should uphold and not damn.” 

Santos calls himself “an ordinary guy”. Get over yourself.
