European Court rules UK can revoke Article 50

The European Court of Justice has officially ruled that the UK can unilaterally revoke Article 50. Surprise, surprise!

They have decided that such a situation would be a “sovereign decision to retain its status as a member state of the EU”.

The timing of this is obvious: the day before MPs are set to vote on Theresa May’s EU deal. This amounts to cynical foreign interference in British democracy.

Nigel Farage responded by saying that “the collusion to stop Brexit continues”.


So the UK can unilaterally stop revoke Article 50 but not the EU’s backstop trap? Funny that.
