Hubert Legal, Council's top lawyer, EU would be embroiled in constant negotiations would “to charm the notifying black sheep back to the flock through promises" of special treatment and "general opt-outs".
"This would encourage notifications that could be, if not frivolous, at least tentative or conditional and inspired by the hope to obtain a better deal than what regular membership offers," he said. "The main victim would be the European project."
Key words in court statement taking the ECJ into a role of constitutional clarification for HoC BEFORE the event. It seems MPs need EU judges to stiffen the sinews nowadays
