Brexit delayed?

The result of the High Court yesterday that the applicants should be allowed permission To have a Judicial Review of the government ‘s decision on how they plan to serve the Article 50 Notice and that the government should seek Parliament’s approval was in my view wrong. Parliament only derives its sovereignty from the people. It is the people who are sovereign. The phrase that Parliament is sovereign arises because MP’s are elected by the people in a general election. In this particular case of leaving the EU the government specifically had the consent of the British people to hold a referendum on whether we should leave the European Union. There is no need for Parliament to express a view on this issue on behalf of the people of the Company because the people of this Country have already expressed their view in the referendum. Anyway, as I thought it now looks highly likely the case will finally be decided by the Supreme Court at a hearing next month. In the meantime preparations for us leaving the EU will continue.
