Brexit ruling: UK can cancel decision, EU court says

Recommended Posts




The European Court of Justice has ruled the UK can cancel Brexit without the permission of the other 27 EU members.


The ECJ judges ruled this could be done without altering the terms of Britain's membership.


A group of anti-Brexit politicians argued the UK should be able to unilaterally halt Brexit, but they were opposed by the government and EU.


The decision comes a day before MPs are due to vote on Theresa May's deal for leaving the EU.


MPs are already widely expected to reject the proposals during a vote in the House of Commons planned for Tuesday night.


But there is now speculation the vote will be cancelled, with three sources confirming the delay to the BBC's political editor Laura Kuenssberg.

The Liberal Democrats have announced that they will join with Labour in any vote of no-confidence in May's government.


Oh good, so they will have another election with both major parties once again campaigning on not undoing Brexit, but also not agreeing to the EU's terms, and then the Conservatives will win again with a new leader that does nothing. This is basically going to be a wasted decade for the UK.

I see no reason for the EU to even want the UK to cancel it.  The UK just appears to be more trouble than its worth at this stage.


Does there not potentially come a point where the EU would rather pretty much any resolution to this instead of letting this clusterfuck sideshow continue to fester?
