The advocate general to the court of justice of the EU has announced that the UK can cancel its article 50 notice unilaterally. Manuel Campos Sánchez-Bordona has made it clear that if the UK parliament decides to remain then the EU cannot stop that from happening. With a Pro EU Prime Minister offering a terrible deal, this is looking more and more likely. A hard Brexit? Another Referendum? Or cancel it altogether…
Liam Fox who is a Senior Brexit minister has said there is a 50-50 chance of Brexit not happening if ministers reject Theresa May’s deal. The international trade secretary seem to think that a deal is the only possible future for the UK. However, there was no mention of a deal on the ballot sheets when voters came to the polling stations on 23 June 2016. The vote was clear and now it seems as though politicians are willing to sacrifice democracy if it gets them what they want.
Liberal Democrat leader Sir Vince Cable has been calling for another referendum and has urged remain campaigners to “keep fighting”. His colleague MP Layla Moran who has been leading the charge for another referendum has said: “The only thing that is shattering the bond of trust between electorate and Parliament is the refusal of ministers like Liam Fox to trust people with the final say on Brexit.” With all the fear mongering by the BBC, politicians and other media corporations, the vote could be quite different than the first.
The main opposition have been very weak over the past two years. Jeremy Corbyn has been critical of May and her Brexit plan, while not offering any clear solutions. He seems to think he could negotiate a better deal. Even after Michael Roth, Germany’s European affairs minister clearly said – “No deal better than the one on the table can be reached.”
