UK court: Gov't can't trigger EU exit without Parliament

Posted November 04, 2016

Her government plans to appeal the court's ruling in December.

The government argued that it should be able to use its royal prerogative powers, meaning it could act alone, to trigger Article 50 of the Lisbon treaty and begin the formal process to leave the EU. They argued that leaving the European Union will remove rights, including free movement within the bloc, and that it couldn't be done without Parliament's approval.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn urged the government to begin negotiating with Parliament immediately, saying "there must be transparency and accountability to Parliament on the terms of Brexit".

"May.is relying on a power called the royal prerogative that lets the government withdraw from worldwide treaties". They're hopeful that Parliament might be in a better position to negotiate a "soft" exit - a sort of Brexit Lite - which would maintain the U.K.'s access to the European single market, in the model of places such as Norway.

The government has said it plans to appeal, Frank reports. Ken Odeluga, a market analyst at United Kingdom spread better City Index said that the court ruling had "set the cat amongst the pigeons with its dramatic ruling".

Mr Pugh added he believed the referendum result should be respected, but that the government was failing to deliver on what was promised before the vote.

Nigel Farage, head of the anti-EU party UKIP, echoed the fears of many eurosceptics when he took to Twitter to say that he feared the ruling could turn into an attempt to scupper Brexit altogether. "We know what the fishing industry wants out of Brexit and now it is up to the government to go and get it for them", he said.

She said the court's judgment "is about all of us".

"The court does not accept the argument put forward by the government", Thomas said.

Yet since the referendum, the Prime Minister and her team of Brexit ministers have not been clear about the exact terms of exiting the bloc.

Windies clinch away Test win over Pakistan
Sri Lanka won the first Test, bowling Zimbabwe out with less than eight overs left in the match to win by 225 runs on Wednesday. Brathwaite, 44 overnight, took some of the pressure off when he drove Wahab Riaz through the covers for four off the first ball.

The other 27 member states have said negotiations about the terms of the UK's exit - due to last two years - can not begin until Article 50 has been invoked. However, many have remained silent on the issue, leading to some expectations that Parliament might reverse the referendum's decision and keep the U.K.in the union.

"I worry that a betrayal may be near at hand", he said.

The High Court has ruled in favour of campaigners who said MPs should have a vote on it. At the core of the matter is the balance of power between Parliament and the government. "They have no idea (of the) level of public anger they will provoke".

If all the MPs voted in the way that they campaigned in the referendum then there would be a Commons majority for staying in the European Union, but it is enormously unlikely that they would decide to ignore the outcome of the referendum.

Experts say it's possible - but extremely unlikely - that the case could be taken further to the European Court of Justice in Luxembourg, the EU's highest court. It is expected that when Article 50 is finally triggered the pound will fall to a record low.
