It is Tuesday evening, and less than 72 hours before the UK leaves the EU, unless Article 50 notice is withdrawn, or the Council grants a further extension to the Article 50 period. I wrote yesterday, i.e. on Monday, from Bucharest, to a comrade, saying,
I never in my life, before today, expected one day to find myself taking a Prime Minister to court, seeking an injunction to stop him or her from doing something or other that he or she was reported on the BBC news to have threatened to do, which I thought was probably illegal, but which the PM apparently thought he or she was perfectly entitled to do, just because he or she was PM. Yet that is exactly what I am expecting to be doing later this week, when I get back from Romania.
Tonight, I am staying a short walk from the Royal Courts of Justice. I hope to get a hearing in the morning, in Court 37. The applicati0n and my witness statement are here.
POSTSCRIPT added 29th April 2019
I intend to post the transcript I have ordered of the hearing of Wednesday 9th April, which should be available any day soon.
The next episode of this overall story is recounted in this subsequent post: Schrödinger’s Brexit.
