Op-ed: A High Court ruling Thursday highlights how shambolic BRexit and the Tory government overseeing the process is.
On June 23 a majority of voters chose BRexit.
Thursday "The high court has decided the government does not have the power to trigger article 50 without consulting parliament" throwing a spanner in the works.
Nothing much in real terms has happened on BRexit since June 23 but there has been a greal deal of procrastination, pontification, a plummeting pound, inflation and other serious economic woes.
Following the High Court ruling Thursday the value of the pound is up highlighting that it is all a sham.
Right-wing rag the Daily Mail reports:
Judges trigger major constitutional crisis as they deliver 'slap in the face' to Theresa May by ruling MPs MUST be given a vote on Brexit but ministers vow to overturn controversial decision.
The government will appeal the decision and unelected Prime Minister Theresa May insists the schedule for BRexit will be met.
But the government cannot trigger Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty and begin the formal exit-negotiations with the EU without including parliament.
According to BBC News "A statement is to be made to MPs on Monday but the prime minister's official spokesman said the government had "no intention of letting" the judgement "derail Article 50 or the timetable we have set out. We are determined to continue with our plan"."
Political leaders are viewing today's news from different angles. Nigel Farage smells a rat and thinks the government may renege on BRexit. Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn however urged the government "to bring its negotiating terms to Parliament without delay", adding that "there must be transparency and accountability to Parliament on the terms of Brexit".
Thursday's court ruling is a mixed bag.
If it is upheld it could be a positive or a negative.
Remember Theresa May is not an elected Prime Minister; she took over from David Cameron when he turned tail and ran following his disastrous handling of the EU referendum.
The electorate will be better represented during BRexit negotiations with cross party involvement.
The worry is that the Westminster hierarchy will work out a BRexit to suit their agenda rather than the will of the people.
