The supreme courtTHIS week’s Supreme Court case is one of the most important legal challenges ever heard in the UK.

For the first time, all 11 judges will sit to rule on a decision that could have far-reaching constitutional and political consequences.

Journalists from more than 80 countries have assembled in London for the case.

At stake is whether the government needs the authority of Parliament to trigger Article 50, the process for the UK to leave the EU.

Theresa May’s government believes it has the right to do so.

Local campaigner Paul Cartwright and the People’s Challenge are one of the groups that stand in their way.

The battle lines have been drawn.

Let’s hope British justice…and, above all, common sense prevail.

  1. Basically when Ted Heath signed the Treaty of Rome it was an act of treason. The following link is most interesting. This was also confirmed by a letter from Lord Kilmuir the Lord Chancellor to Ted Heath

    “http://www.vernoncoleman.com/euillegally.html”

  2. If leavers are so convinced of their case. why the kerfuffle over a confirmation of the legality of how it should be enacted? What are they so frightened of, that death threats should be issued to the complainants?
    Maybe, just maybe, their case is fatally flawed.

  3. Thanks Jon, but this story is not specifically Gibraltar-related. It should be on the “main” site imho, just like all the other main Brexit stories as this story.
