Janice ATKINSON MEP OPINION:
“Today the out-of-touch, unelected elite Supreme Court Justices have ruled in favour of a few wealthy individuals who sought to thwart the will of the British people to leave the EU.
“Our discredited former Prime Minister Tony Blair, himself a lawyer and the man who set up the Supreme Court may see this as a victory along with his Remainer cronies. But it will be a hollow one since the Supreme Court judgement is irrelevant to the new reality which is that Brexit is happening as demanded by the people.”
“Labour MPs know that if they vote against triggering Article 50 they will face a populist backlash, the like of which has never been seen in the UK. To vote against it would see them swept out of Parliamentary seats – which even now they are struggling to hold.”
