Thread on #A50challenge

Where is the decision?

When agreeing to give permission for a Judicial Review recently on whether Article 50 can be revoked, the Scottish court highlighted points which made our ears prick up.

Firstly they dealt with permission. The government is relying heavily on the fact we brought the claim out of the 3 month rule for Judicial Review. The court makes it clear, matters of constitutional importance deserve exceptional status and should be heard.

Then they dealt with article 50 itself & laid out in sequence how it works. We know parliament voted to pass a bill which gave power to the PM to notify. However that bill contained no decision. Article 50 makes it clear para 1 a decision has to made, next step notification.

The way Brexit is currently constructed is like asking a council to notify planning permission without the decision on what will be built. To make the decision one needs to see impact studies and plans, confer, decide and notify.

So we decided we can assist Scottish court with Article 50. It has great potential because this case has permission and the hearing is on June 12th.

On same day we have hearing in London to deal with permission. #A50challenge will still go ahead in London simultaneously.

The Scottish adventure will help raise the profile of the reality Parliament hasn’t voted to leave the EU.

Pls help us make this happen by pledging £5+ and RT.
