Remoaners Trying to “Invalidate” Referendum Result

eu-court

Remoaner lawyers seeking to force a parliamentary vote on triggering Article 50 are trying to “invalidate” the referendum result, the high court has heard. Attorney General Jeremy Wright told the court that giving MPs another vote on Brexit is “not required”, explaining that using the royal prerogative is part of a “proper and well established” principle:

“The other parties in this case have sought to say they are defending the sovereignty of parliament. We say that parliament can retain its sovereignty as much by choosing not to do something as by doing something. It chose not to restrict the way royal prerogative powers work on multiple opportunities. The prerogative powers are available to use, we say, to give clear effect to the wishes of the people of the UK that we should begin the process of leaving the EU.”

Decision tomorrow. It shouldn’t be a difficult one.

“DD is manufactured exactly to specification as the perfect stooge for Heywood: thick as mince, lazy as a toad, and vain as Narcissus.”
