British High Court Blocks Brexit Plans

Daily Mail: Judges trigger major constitutional crisis as they deliver 'slap in the face' to Theresa May by ruling MPs MUST be given a vote on Brexit but ministers vow to overturn controversial decision

* Lord Chief Justice delivers damning verdict on Government in High Court
* Judges side with Remain campaigners who argued MPs must be given a vote before Article 50 is invoked
* Theresa May says she will appeal and still plans to trigger Brexit by March
* Stage now set for explosive showdown in the Supreme Court next month
* Brexiteers warn of 'betrayal' of voters and vent fury at judge 'power grab'

Theresa May suffered a massive legal 'slap in the face' today when judges ruled she cannot trigger Brexit without permission from parliament.

Amid fury over a 'power grab' by the judiciary, the PM vowed to appeal against the dramatic High Court defeat - insisting she would not let the decision 'derail' the process of cutting ties with Brussels.

The stage is now set for an extraordinary showdown in the Supreme Court next month - with the fate of the country potentially at stake.

WNU Editor: This will delay Brexit .... not stop it. The Labour party has already indicated that they will support Brexit .... Labour says it will still push for UK to leave the EU after High Court ruling (The Independent), and Conservative backbench members are not going to defy the will of the people who voted for Brexit. But in the event that Brexit does become blocked by the courts .... the uproar among those who voted for Brexit is going to be beyond enormous.

I will read the articles, time permitting, but it does appear that the elites are now trying to engage in any sort of technicality to prevent Brexit. Brexit cannot be prevented. The elites need to adjust.

As I stated when Brexit first became reality, the elites "ain't seen nothing yet" if they continue forward with their reckless and stupid policies. They had the option of stepping back, perhaps being a bit circumspect, and trying to learn from what happened to them. Not only have they not done this but they've doubled down on stupidity. In other words, we are going to have "Frexit", "Grexit". "Gerexit," "Itexit", and a whole lot of other exits. The EU is a doomed entity. The only question for the elites is this going to be a "hard landing" or a "soft landing" for them. As of right now, it looks like its going to be a hard landing. Some people just never learn until its to late.
