IMPORTANT NEWS. There is a hearing tomorrow. The plaintiffs make the case that Teresa May's notification to withdraw from the EU was manifestly invalid. Moreover, they allege that she is guilty of Misconduct in Public Office.

"1) The Supreme Court ruled that the advisory EU Referendum could not make the decision to leave the European Union. That decision would need an Act of Parliament."

"2) The Notice of Withdrawal Bill was then presented in response to the Supreme Court’s ruling. However, it failed to include the one thing the Supreme Court said it needed – a withdrawal decision.

"Instead it focused on the mechanism for notification of a decision, which Article 50 tells us is only relevant once there is a formal withdrawal decision to notify.
"3) In introducing the Bill to Parliament, Government ministers defied the Supreme Court’s ruling and falsely claimed that the Referendum had made the withdrawal decision.
"Given the simplicity of the ruling and ministers’ ready access to an army of Government lawyers, it’s impossible they were in any doubt that their claims were untrue, so we know they lied knowingly.
"4) Critically though, the lie changed the course of the Parliamentary process that passed the Bill into the Act. The false claim that the decision was already made precluded Parliamentary debate about the Referendum result. To date, Parliament has not debated the result.
"5) Neither the Referendum result nor the Notice of Withdrawal Act provided the constitutionally required decision to leave.
"Nevertheless, the Government pressed on and purported to trigger Article 50, in defiance of the Supreme Court’s ruling that a decision to leave requires an Act of Parliament.
"Senior Government ministers have lied recklessly and knowingly to the public and Parliament, acting outside the law and in defiance of the Supreme Court. This is misconduct. They are acting with hubris, and with a sense of entitlement beyond the powers of their office."
A different and slightly expanded summary of the case is here.

Their press release is here. "Summons against the Prime Minister."

KEEP UP THE ACTION! This court case in itself is not enough to stop Brexit, even if it is heard. This battle is being fought on many fronts: in the court, in the news, online, and certainly in parliament.
How do we avoid a No Deal Brexit?


It is simple legislation that will prevent a Crash Out/No Deal Brexit.
