-High Court Ruled Parliamentary Approval Needed Article 50
LONDON (MNI) - The UK government is set to appeal against a High
Court ruling that parliamentary approval is needed before Article 50 can
Article 50 triggers the process cumulating in the UK's leaving the
European Union. The government had planned to decide, without a
parliamentary vote, when to exercise it.
The High Court, however, on Thursday ruled that the government was
wrong and parliamentary approval was needed.
The ruling was met with predictable fury by some Leave campaigners,
but in reality no-one is anticipating parliament rejecting Brexit
outright, although it does strengthen the negotiating hand of those
looking for a softer Brexit.
