United Kingdom Supreme Court Rules Against Prime Minister Theresa May Stating Parliament Must Vote On Whether To Trigger Article 50 In Reference To Brexit

January 27. 2017

Theresa May

This week, the United Kingdom's Supreme Court, handed down a judicial order that went against the formal legal petition of the ruling Conservative Party, headed up by Prime Minister, Theresa May, to fast track legislation through the British Parliament, in reference to Britain's vote to leave the 28-member state European Union. The ruling bars the fast track legislation the Prime Minister requested to trigger Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty, regarding exiting the European Union and stipulates Parliament democratically must vote on the matter.

If Article 50 is triggered, it would begin the 2-year process of officially removing Britain from the European Union. It should be noted, in July 2016, the British people voted to leave the European Union, with a majority vote of over 1.2 million votes (52% of the voting nation).

At the end of the day, the vote should be honored. However, I will again state this, leaving the Single Market, a special trade sector for trading goods in the European Union at a favorable rate and under less restrictive conditions, as is being stated by the Prime Minister for a clean break, is financially unhealthy for Britain and Europe.

It is my hope that whatever deal is struck, it will be beneficial to both parties and free of acrimony and retaliation from either side. After all, you are neighbors with much in common. At the end of the day, a good deal is a good deal. 65,000,000 consumers in Britain and 500,000,000 in the European Union is nothing to be sneezed at, as both are good, fertile trade grounds. It has been a pipeline. Try to work things out peacefully and without the intent to punish each other, as a handful of politicians have suggested.

Complaints were being made all over the country by Britons who want their local government in London to make the laws that government the nation, rather than from the seat of the European Union. Britons have also been struggling with overcrowding due to mass immigration. I've seen the increase in migration to Britain over the past decade and it has put a strain on resources due to the fact immigrants are piling into London, a city of 10,000,000 people.

Member states of the European Union all abide by a "Freedom of Movement" segment of the charter, which enables its citizens to easily move to any of its 28 countries and obtain permanent residency. This is well and fine when a person has a job lined up in a nation. However, many did not, which walloped the British system.

Britain received a disproportionate amount of traffic that nearly quadrupled its population in a relatively short period of time. It has led to massive financial demands on the benefits/welfare system, an affordable housing shortage in London, overcrowding in schools and on public transport, as well as an overwhelmed National Health Service (NHS) whose resources are stretched.

Not one to criticize without offering solutions, I made some suggestions in past Judiciary Report articles on how to remedy those issues, as the problems are not insurmountable:
