The European Court of Justice’s Advocate General has given his opinion on the UK’s ability to revoke Article 50 and stop Brexit. Perhaps unsurprisingly, he says it can be done.
It is an opinion rather than a final ruling, but is likely to be followed. Manuel Campos Sanchez-Bordona has said that Article 50 does allow “unilateral revocation of the notification of the intention to withdraw from the EU, until such time as the Withdrawal Agreement is formally concluded”. A judgement by the ECJ will follow.

Nigel Farage responded by saying: “ECJ says the UK can revoke Article 50 without permission. Every effort is being made on both sides of the Channel to stop Brexit.”

There can be little doubt that there is a concerted attempt by the establishment to overturn the referendum result and kill off Brexit completely.
Brexit is under attack. Help Westmonster fight for democracy.
