So the Supreme Court finally published its judgment on whether the Government could trigger Article 50, beginning Brexit, the process of leaving the European Union, using prerogative (executive) powers.It was absolutely right for the Prime Minister to appeal to the Supreme Court, contrary to some who have said that the Government wasted money in doing so. After all, the ruling divided into two distinct and important parts. The PM’s critics miss an important point, which is that the court had been asked to rule on the outcome of two of the UK’s High Courts, those of Northern Ireland and separately of England and Wales. The Government needed to establish a clear position on both. In the end, like the curate’s egg it was good in some parts but bad in others.Perhaps the most vital of the issues before the court was whether the UK government had an overriding legal obligation to consult the devolved administrations prior to triggering Article 50. In essence this would have handed enormous power to the devolved administrations which both, idiotically, see their future including closer ties with Europe, even though neither has a viable economy outside the UK. For the Government, this was perhaps the most difficult area for, if upheld by the Supreme Court, then it would have led to long delay and intense and complicated arguments between the devolved administrations and Westminster.
In fact, many believe that the purpose of this demand was to block the triggering of Article 50 completely, thus overturning the referendum result and keeping Britain in the EU. Certainly, had the Court ruled in their favour then the process would have ground to a halt, and Article 50 would have likely as not become bogged down in tortuous legal and political debates. To the Government’s relief, that now will not happen.
However, in the second part of the judgment, the Court, in a split decision, ruled against the Government’s appeal. It found that the Government had to legislate before invoking Article 50. This means putting a Bill through the Commons and the Lords which is capable of being amended.
As the deluded bureaucrats of Brussels still think the present European Union of 27 member states will be best served by those members surrendering their national sovereignty to become provinces of a federal European superstate, we wonder have the insane idiots of the Scottish National Party and Plaid Cymru made it clear that their intention to take their nations out of the United Kingdom would lead to both becoming provices of an even more oppressive and suffocating European bureaucratic dictatorship.
Quitaly? Will Italy follow Britain out of the EU?
With a referendum in Italy, ostensibly on constitutional reforms but perceived as a referendum on the leadership of the ruling elite, looming in November and the anti - globalisation, pro sovereignty Five Star Party growing in popularity all the time. Should the constitutional changes be voted down, and the against campaign is showing a comfortable lead in opinion polls at the moment, it will put a Quitaly in-out referendum, similar to the so called Brexit vote that kick off the process of Britain leaving the European Union, at the top of the agenda.
Europe is at The End of its Existence. Western Europe Is Virtually Dead
The free flow of guns and grenades West is not the main problem Europe faces said the counter - terror expert said. Pointing to the existential crisis Mr. Wrona said: "The worst problem for is political correctness. Europe is at the end of its existence. Western Europe is practically dead. These people live in a void, without ideas. And then come along the young, who [only want] to make money, as once did the barbarians".
EU Chief Warns of 'Implosion' as Trust in Europe Fades
EU leaders show almost every day they are desperate for Britain to vote to remain in the EU, so why do they keep doing things certain to alienate patriotic Britons. It's bad enough that the idoiots in Brussels want to destroy European civilisation by allowing unrestricted immigration from backward cultures without admitting such backward countries as Turkey so that its 80 million Muslim inhabitans will be able to enter Europe freely.
Dutch Referendum This Week Shows why We Should Leave The EU.

Cameronâ€™s EU Package: Not A Deal But A Few Turns In The Spin Machine
As we and almost everybody else predicted, David Cameron's deal to improve Britain's relationship with the EU is worthless. It changes nmothing, and can be vetoed once we have voted to stay in.

Cameron's EU Deal Worthless. It Can Be Vetoed In European Parliament?
Opinion polls show Britain is evenly divided on the question of whether to leave or remain in the EU, though it has been suggested up to 10 million other voters, many of them women, have yet to make a decision.
