Theresa May vows not to allow British people’s Brexit vote to be sabotaged by crooked lawyers

Writing in The Sunday Telegraph, UK Prime Minister Theresa May has pledged to challenge the Brexit ruling of the High Court.

She writes…

On Thursday, the High Court decided that the government could not begin the process of withdrawing from the European Union without the permission of MPs and members of the House of Lords. It is a decision the government will challenge in the Supreme Court.

This may appear to be a debate about process, and the legal argument is complex, but in reality there is an important principle at stake. Parliament voted to put the decision about our membership of the EU in the hands of the British people. The people made their choice, and did so decisively. It is the responsibility of the government to get on with the job and to carry out their instruction in full.  MPs and peers who regret the referendum result need to accept what the people decided.

Instead of re-fighting the battles of the past, we should be focusing on how we can come together as a country to make the most of this great national opportunity…

The way government lawyers sabotaged the Brexit case at the High Court should be a warning to the UK government about the need for vigilance in monitoring key trade and other Brexit negotiations.
