Article 50 Decision Reaction

Liam Fox:“The government is disappointed by the court’s judgement. The country voted to leave the European Union in a referendum approved by an Act of Parliament. The government is determined to respect the result of the referendum.”

Nigel Farage: “I worry that a betrayal may be near at hand. I now fear that every attempt will be made to block or delay the triggering of Article 50. If this is so, they have no idea of the level of public anger they will provoke.”

Dominic Raab: “This case is a plain attempt to block Brexit by people who are out of touch with the country and refuse to accept the result. However, the vote to leave the EU was clear and they should not seek to obstruct it.”

Suzanne Evans:“How dare these activist judges attempt to overturn our will? It’s a power grab and undermines democracy… The government must appeal. People power must win. Predictably, the same people now quoting ‘parliamentary sovereignty’ are the very same people who were happy to give it away for last 40 years.”

Policy Exchange:The High Court has made a bad mistake.  It has wrongly lent its authority to a claim that undermines both democratic self-government and the rule of law. The basic point of this litigation has not been to defend parliamentary democracy.  Rather, the aim has been to introduce a new stumbling block to Brexit”

Conservative Home:“This judgment doesn’t have half the impact some people on each side seem to believe. Article 50 will still go ahead, and we will still leave the EU. There’ll no doubt be more battles to come, but when was that not the case?”

Mark Wallace’s ConHome piece is clear-headed: calm down, Brexit will not be blocked.

Quote of the Day

Keir Starmer says…

“Article 50 was triggered a year ago. I don’t think there is any realistic prospect of it being revoked. Therefore we will be leaving the EU in March 2019.”
