EU Court Calls Britain’s Brexit Bluff

The latest news is all in line with why Brexit was never going to be allowed to happen.

On Tuesday, a top official at the European Union’s highest court said the UK could change its decision and stay in the European Union. Fuelling Pro-EU campaigners’ hope in the UK that Brexit can be stopped.

Yet Prime Minster Theresa May’s government held firmly insisting it wouldn’t go back on its decision to leave the EU. But it isn’t smooth sailing for May in her battle for backing in parliament before the vote next week, where lawmakers accept or reject her negotiated divorce agreement with the bloc.

Without backing, the UK will front an unruly ‘no-deal’ Brexit, which could collapse the prime minister and the government.

It seems they’re hedging their bets. Even if Brexit proceeds, they’re opening the door to cancelling it later.

And this isn’t unlike the back tunnelling we’re seeing against Australia’s free speech, where a select group of Australians want to stifle your fundamental right to speak your mind. Read Bernd Struben’s report to find what you can do to help turn the tide, here (for free). 

UK can cancel Brexit

Advocate General Manuel Campos Sanchez-Bordona told the European Court of Justice that Britain’s decision to leave, revoking the countdown, is legally valid.  More often than not, advice by the advocate general is supported by the full court.

European Court of Justice is evaluating the concern through an accelerated procedure. The verdict is expected in the coming weeks, as Britain is due to leave the bloc on 29 March.

Scottish legislators prompted the courts to rule on whether the UK can pull out of the withdrawal procedure on its own, as reported by The Age.

The EU’s governing European Commission and European Council oppose unilateral revocation, disputing it would take unanimous agreement from the remaining 27 members of the bloc.

Leading the court’s advocate general to say that Article 50 ‘allows the unilateral revocation of the notification of the intention to withdraw from the EU.’

This lifted the spirits of anti-Brexit campaigners, who want to reverse the decision to leave.

“That puts the decision about our future back into the hands of our own elected representatives – where it belongs,” said Jo Maugham, a British lawyer who helped bring the case.

The Prime Minister’s spokesman, James Slack, said the opinion didn’t change ‘the clear position of the government that Article 50 is not going to be revoked’.

But Brexit has been plagued by delay tactics and other hurdles the EU and anti-Brexit campaigners have been throwing up over the past years — to the point where the idea of Brexit is over.

The Deep State didn’t like the outcome of the Brexit vote, so they want to have it again…and again…until it goes their way. But that’s not how a properly functioning democracy should work. You vote, and you get on with it.

PS: The politically correct brigade in Australia wants to stifle anything you say if they deem it ‘dangerous’, or even if it just hurts someone’s feelings. This free report reveals more.
