Former appeal judge says legality of Brexit extension SHOULD be tested
A former appeal judge has said the legality of Theresa May's delay to Brexit should be tested in a court.
Sir Richard Aikens, who sat in the Court of Appeal from 2008 until 2015, spoke after the leader of the English Democrats political party launched a legal battle claiming that the UK has already left the EU.
Britain was supposed to leave on March 29, but was granted an extension by the EU until April 12 at a meeting last in Brussels last month.
But The English Democrats leader Robin Tilbrook, as well as number of Tory Brexiteers, says the new exit date should have gone before the House of Commons and the House of Lords before it was approved.
This week, Chairman Robin Tilbrook personally served papers upon Government Solicitors in regards to a case we are holding at the High Court. This case is to show that the UK has indeed already left the European Union on the original deadline of precisely 11am, 29th March 2019.
This is our only chance to complete what we voted for in the EU Referendum! Forget the noisy demos and justified anger THIS is the ONLY way we can HOPE to have our democratic mandate honoured….IN LAW!
When Gina Miller started her case, the media was reporting it with enthusiasm as it was seen as a way to stop the UK fulfilling the referendum result. Now her case is being used against the government, to show that the UK has indeed left the European Union, and that Theresa May had no legal authority to extend Article 50.
This really is THE LAST STAND for our country and we all must get behind this serious legal challenge. The LAW is on OUR side, WE THE PEOPLE have voted, and our decision is lawful therefore to pervert this is not only undemocratic and immoral it is illegal!
