What Would Happen IF BREXIT were CANCELED?
BREXIT could be Cancelled by UK Parliament as European Court of Justice has granted fast-track procedure for BREXIT reversal case to be decided on 27th of November. The decision was announced on Friday, by ECJ, and it comes after a request from a Scotland’s highest court on the reversibility of Article 50.
The case has been brought by Mr Maugham and a cross-party group of politicians in Scotland, comprising Labour MEPs Catherine Stihler and David Martin, Joanna Cherry MP and Alyn Smith MEP of the SNP, and Green MSPs Andy Wightman and Ross Greer.
Does ECJ have to right to decide over Brexit?
Yes, because until there is an official Brexit, UK is under ECJ jurisdiction.
What is this article 50?
“A Member State which decides to withdraw shall notify the European Council of its intention. In the light of the guidelines provided by the European Council, the Union shall negotiate and conclude an agreement with that State, setting out the arrangements for its withdrawal, taking account of the framework for its future relationship with the Union. That agreement shall be negotiated in accordance with Article 218(3) of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union. It shall be concluded on behalf of the Union by the Council, acting by a qualified majority, after obtaining the consent of the European Parliament.”
What a reversal BREXIT case means?
The European Court of Justice (ECJ) will consider whether Brexit can be halted if MPs vote to do so.
If it is successful, this case could boost the support for the Remain side as UK Parliament will have the legal right to keep the UK in the EU even after the final details of its departure terms are known.
It would give Parliament the power to unilaterally halt Brexit if it feels that any final deal - or no deal - is unacceptable.
The Parliament will be free to do so EVEN IF the May government wants to leave.
So, if things will go as the “Remain” camp wants, BREXIT could be halted by a simple vote in Parliament. This vote could trigger immediately after it becomes clear that May cabinet will not get a Brexit Deal, and therefore Hard Brexit will be imminent.
