And here it is.

AG considers it is open to the U.K. to unilaterally revoke #Art50 under certain conditions.

If the Court follows this Opinion, the path will have been cleared for MPs to decide the damage being inflicted on our country should stop - in the national interest.
Here’s the link to the @EUCourtPress press release-…
AG makes light work of the UK Govt argument that this question of #Art50 revocation was purely hypothetical and therefore that the Court should not rule on it.
The AG considers the Court should decide that the UK can unilaterally revoke #Art50 provided:
- in accordance with our constitutional requirements
-formally notified to Council
-not an abusive practice.
The AG also expressly rejects the Council & Commission’s contention that revocation can only be with the unanimous consent of the Member States, since that would risk the member state being made to leave against its will.
Looks like there is lots of interesting stuff about the national identity of Member States and the reason for #Art50 which I will have to read tonight.

For now, heading to court myself, feeling very thankful to @GoodLawProject & petitioners who fought hard for this clarity.
A quick reminder to everyone that the AG Opinion is not binding, and might not be followed (in whole or in part) by the full Court. Yesterday @bricksilk was tweeting that he had heard a rumour of an impossibly fast decision by the Court w/c 17 December.
