Another day, another Brexit court case

Campaigners are aiming to get a cast-iron legal guarantee that the Prime Minister cannot force the UK to crash out of the EU.

The PM has hinted he will flout the new law, repeatedly declaring the UK will leave the bloc on October 31 ‘do or die.’Campaigners will ask the Court of Session in Edinburgh to make it a legal requirement that Mr Johnson asks the EU for an extension if a deal cannot be reached before mid-October.SNP politician Joanna Cherry said: ‘Like much of what Boris Johnson says, there is a gulf of truth between the obvious facts of the matter and what he and his Government have been saying.

He is currently trying to renegotiate with the EU over the Irish backstop but officials in Europe say they are ‘unconvinced’ by Mr Johnson’s new ideas.
