Letter from Andrew Brons To Telegraph


The EU is still insisting that negotiations about future trade relationships between the UK
and the EU cannot begin until the UK’s fee for leaving the EU has been agreed.

The Order of Brexit Negotiations

 The arrangements for withdrawal can take account of “the framework for its future relationship with the Union” only if that framework has already been decided.

114 MPs voted against the will of the British People (triggering Article 50) 

MPs have voted by a majority of 384 to allow Prime Minister Theresa May to get Brexit negotiations under way.
They backed the government’s European Union Bill, supported by the Labour leadership, by 498 votes to 114. Longstanding Europhile Ken Clarke was the only Conservative MP to vote against triggering Article 50.

54% of Voters Agree That Invoking Article 50 Is A Decision For The Prime Minister To Make.

The High Court is currently considering whether the Prime Minister has the legal right to invoke Article 50 – thereby triggering the beginning of the process for withdrawal from the European Union – without having to have a Parliamentary vote.
Many who voted Leave at the referendum believe that the case is not about Parliamentary sovereignty – as those who have brought the case about suggest – but a way of overturning the result of the referendum.
