1. The decision to leave the EU was NOT made by the electorate nor by Parliament but by the PM alone relying on the result of the referendum and for purely political reasons: this is in breach of the U.K’s constitution.
2. Supreme Ct in Miller didn't specify how the UK should leave the EU, and the Government has obfuscated to create an illusion of a Parliamentary decision. However in reality the Notification Act 17 changed nothing. PM always had power to notify once a valid decision was made.
3. Without doubt an intention to leave the EU was birthed after the referendum which was a shock as the party canvassing for this eventuality only ever achieved 12% of votes.

A minor issue was magically blown up to centre stage overnight.
4. The Labour party had an intention to ban fox hunting for decades before it won a mandate in 97 for a free Parliamentary vote. This intention took years to work through Parliament which agonised over the loss of people's rights to hunt foxes. It was finally legislated in 2005.
5. The Brexit plan was formulated around how to subvert Parliament which was always 2/3 majority in favour of EU membership. The illusions of an intention to leave the EU has been weaponised by the media and forced upon the country.
6. The 2017 Notification Act did not change the law, nor did it compel the Prime Minster to serve Notice. The PM always had the power to notify in the event Parliament decided to leave the EU.
7. There was no explicit authorisation of the PM to take the decision and, even if she was so authorised, the PM failed to conduct a decision making process in accordance with basic principles of administrative law, being part of the constitutional requirements of the UK.
8. The PM’s notification letter to the EU does not refer to the fact the PM made the decision. It asserts the decision was made by the people in the referendum, a claim which is wrong in law. It goes on to maintain that the result of the referendum was confirmed by Parliament.
9. BUT such confirmation was superfluous; the result was not in doubt. The Act does not ratify the “decision” taken at the referendum, it merely specifies who in the British Government has the authority to serve the Article 50 notice should such a decision be made.
10.The notice has been served without any decision to leave the EU having been made by the UK in accordance with its constitutional requirements as required by EU law.
11.Consequently, the service of notice by the Prime Minister and the European Commission’s conduct of negotiations are abuses of process. The Government and the Commission are in breach of their duty to uphold the EU Treaties and the rights of both UK citizens and EU Citizens.
12. Gov’s defence to #A50Challenge was that no decision to leave the EU was needed; a statutory entitlement to serve notice under A50 was sufficient. The Court dismissed that argument and ruled that in deciding to send the A50 notice, the PM made the decision on behalf of UK
13. #A50Challenge disputes that the 2017 Act gave authority for making such a decision to the PM. Any decision that was made was taken improperly. In deciding to invoke Article 50 the PM failed to comply with basic requirements for making decisions under delegated powers.
14. No consideration was given to anything other than the Gov’s commitment to implement the result of a deeply flawed referendum process. Moreover, contrary to the ruling of the Divisional Court, the purported Article 50 notification was not written in the language of decision.
15. It is for those reasons that we have appealed against the Divisional Court’s dismissal of our Judicial Review application.

We await news from the Court of Appeal.

In 2015 parliament voted to allow advisory referendum. Because it was advisory no safeguards were attached

In 2016 HMG insisted vote was binding & opposition nor media challenged this lie.

BBC immediately reported we have left &opposition called for trigger of A50.
Referendum was advisory. As much as having false title deed to your property this matters

Supreme ct ruled in Miller that parliament had to decide.

PM didn’t ask parliament if they want to leave she merely asked if they will give her power to notify - once a decision is made.
So having tricked Parliament and electorate into believing illusion parliament had decided, the PM sent the the letter to the EU.

Lord Justice gross held PM decided to strip rights of over 500bn people all based on fraud.

This decision of PM which impacts on every EU citizen is unconstitutional.

There’s been no due diligence, no parliamentary decision and, as she admits in the letter, it’s based purely on the referendum.

EC have confirmed it was #frauderendum.

The decision is tainted.
We embarked on @A50Challenge with the route map below, in pursuit of the decision. We expected to have to go to full hearing to find it.

It’s super *bonus* court took the opportunity to nail the decision down.

It now makes way for new challenges free of time bar.
If @A50Challenge had won right to hearing, the decision would still be knocking around like an out of control cannon ball.

Had a court found the decision was implied in Notification Act, it would’ve been fatal.

The route is now clear for new challenges to PM’s dodgy decision.

Parliament voted in 2015 to hold a referendum. No checks, balances or threshold were applied bc it was advisory: merely a temperature test.

An international clique of businessmen and politicians then built mega campaign using dark money, psychops & lies to drown remain.
This on a backdrop of the PM, David Cameron, promising to deliver the result of the referendum, despite the fact it was unlawful for him to do so in the event leave won.

Shocking as this may seem, Cameron's remain credentials aren't above reproach.…
Even Cameron's old chum warned us Cameron was not to be trusted - but I guess Boris's word on things is hardly reliable:…

Thread on #A50challenge

Where is the decision?

When agreeing to give permission for a Judicial Review recently on whether Article 50 can be revoked, the Scottish court highlighted points which made our ears prick up.

Firstly they dealt with permission. The government is relying heavily on the fact we brought the claim out of the 3 month rule for Judicial Review. The court makes it clear, matters of constitutional importance deserve exceptional status and should be heard.

Then they dealt with article 50 itself & laid out in sequence how it works. We know parliament voted to pass a bill which gave power to the PM to notify. However that bill contained no decision. Article 50 makes it clear para 1 a decision has to made, next step notification.
