What about the Benn act interfering with the votes of 17.4 million people in order to frustrate them? Fucking hypocrites. They have done nothing BUT frustrate those who voted to leave the EU's toxic membership.

The law forced him to write the extension request letter, it didn't force him to like the idea and it certainly didn't prevent him from saying so because he hasn't stopped saying so. The additional letter he sent to the EU expressed his spoken opinion in written form, it did not threaten any of the governments of the EU or the EU itself with deliberate future disadvantage or retalliation if they should grant an extension. The letter only served the purpose of distancing the PM personally and politically from the extension request letter, the same reason why he also didn't sign the request letter. The letter was still accepted by the EU as an extension request from the UK government.

We're already on shaky ground with the minority parties in Parliament taking over the running of the country under force of law. The ground is really going to start to rumble if opposition to that control is also prevented by force of law.

The law forced him to write the extension request letter, it didn't force him to like the idea and it certainly didn't prevent him from saying so because he hasn't stopped saying so. It's known that it isn't government policy to extend beyond 31 October and he's the head of the government. If parliament are now writing laws that gag the PM of an elected government and the courts are enforcing those laws it seems that we're heading for very interesting times.

The additional letter he sent to the EU expressed his spoken opinion in written form, it did not threaten any of the governments of the EU or the EU itself with deliberate future disadvantage or retalliation. Without a threatened course of action for not complying with the PM's wishes the letter he sent would have had no power to influence whether the EU grants an extension or not if they see an advantage for the EU or themselves in doing so.

It's known that it isn't government policy to extend beyond 31 October and he's the head of the government. If parliament are now writing laws that they believe capable of gagging the PM of an elected government and if the courts are willing to enforce that expectation then it seems we're heading for some very interesting times.

Seems that the UK is being run by unelected unaccountable judges instead of the nationally elected government. Those remain-droid MP's have a lot to answer for. They're actually taking part in a coup. Something for which they should hang. #Brexit

The court should respond with, "his delay tactic is no more unlawful than you Remainer wankers ignoring democracy".

If parliament had meant to require him to sign it, they could have done so.

If parliament had meant to prevent him sending a second letter saying "Yeahbut, I didn't mean it", they could have done so.

Didn't they know what they were legislating for?

Jolyon Maugham and Joanna Cherry - well, what a fucking surprise. Must be Gina Miller's week off.

I voted remain but this is getting ridiculous.

Im seriously concerned democracy is being undermined here - every time remain want something done Bercow allows it but every time leave do something the courts get involved.

Theres a huge double standard and that's not how the system is supposed to work. once brexit is settled there needs to be an overhaul so this doesn't happen again. "

I suggest public hangings for these bought and paid for democracy hating cunts

No to a "People's Vote" ! Despite the Referendum result being one of the biggest democratic votes in our history, there are still people who refuse to accept the result. The choice on the ballot paper was clear: Remain or Leave. The British people knew what they were voting for.

Let them have their day in Court, Very expensive Court I am sure, let them waste their time and their money, I hope Boris is unfazedand we get this thing done, Brexit isn't the most exiting conversation point and it been dominating the public discourse for over 4 years now!

If found unlawful, there's 300+ more to be arrested for "frustrating" the law requiring the UK to leave the EU by 29th March 2019.
