It has emerged that Remain campaigner Jeremy Wright, the Attorney General, threw the Brexit case at the High Court by choosing to emphasise a factually incorrect argument that the government derives its authority to trigger Article 50 from the “will of the people”, something that is contrary to the constitution.
The argument that Wright and his team of James Eadie, Jason Coppel, Tom Cross and Christopher Knight should have presented clearly and in depth is the factually correct one that the government has authority from parliament to trigger Article 50 after the Brexit referendum, and the constitutional process and principles of the land have, therefore, been upheld.
It seems Wright did not even attend the High Court to hear the decision, perhaps because he wanted to keep a low profile in his manoevure to sabotage Brexit. He should actually be charged with the criminal offence of perverting the course of justice. It is not credible that he is so incompetent, he does cannot lay out the central argument clearly and claims the “will of the people” gave the government the authority to trigger Brexit . It is much more credible that his Remain bias influenced him to resort to obfuscation and trickery to sabotage Brexit.
The High Court judgement can and must be overturned in an appeal because it is based on an error of law and a failure to obtain accurate knowledge of the factual situation.
