Hello and hi. Today is the 4th and final day in which the UK Supreme Court will hear about whether or not Parliament is to be consulted before triggering Article 50, and thus, commencing the Brexit process, which is opaquely set out in Article 50 of The Lisbon Treaty. That being said, I am assuming you are well and truly familiar with Brexit-or we simply can’t be friends-sorry (not sorry). However, here is a summary of what is going down:
- Today is the final day of the Supreme Court hearing, with a Judgement expected in January
- The UK Government is appealing to the Supreme Court-saying it does not need MP’s approval to trigger Brexit
- On Wednesday (yesterday) MPs backed Labour’s call for a Brexit plan to be outlined before Article 50 is triggered
- MPs also voted to “respect” the government’s timetable for leaving the EU
So, that’s it. That is all you need to know. Like I said, there will be a decision made/Judgement in January. Guess what that means? More posts on Brexit, people. I urge you to hang in there-REMAIN with me and kindly continue to read my posts. Cheah! See what I did there? If you did not get the reference I simply was referring to the process in voting for the referendum last Summer-there were essentially 2 camps: Leave and Remain-meaning vote to LEAVE the EU or vote to REMAIN in the EU. The British people voted to LEAVE…see EU later.
Until next time, people. That is all.
