The Article 50 case is not over. We are now going to ask Scotland's Highest Court to determine *how* Parliament can revoke the Article 50 Notice. Please support the case here.

Is there a default limit on the time for which a notice remains in effect? Are there any provisions to stop an existing notice, say, being “rolled over” with no - or minimal - new scrutiny or review of the justification for it?

Yes. It will be worth voting every time, because circumstances change, the issues on which the government needs a mandate change, and the government’s mandate on any given issue can expire as the world changes around it.

Brexit profiteers: “Remoaners must stop talking the country down. But not until I’ve made a packet short-selling all my UK investments.”

Miller often wrongly cited as evidence A50 not revocable - both sides decided to assume not. ECJ decision shows assumption wrong. Net net, Miller case helped Brexit, say ministers. Without, many legal cases/judicial reviews in middle process. makes mockery of attack on judiciary

....see my story about my understanding of govt legal advice - this is more a legal point... politically vote would be inevitable, but legally Act may not be required, which a. Could be challenged in courts. B. Might make a difference if timing an issue.

ECJ: “To subject that right to revoke to unanimous approval of European Council as Commission and Council proposed, would transform a unilateral sovereign right into a conditional right -incompatible with principle a Member State cannot be forced to leave EU against its will”.

In some ways the actual ECJ ruling even clearer than the opinion - UK can unilaterally revoke A50 as a sovereign right until A50 period expires, including any extension, it says

“The sovereign nature of the right of withdrawal supports the conclusion that the Member State concerned has a right to revoke the notification of its intention to withdraw”

Dear Andrew, the Prime Minister has failed to unite the country, Parliament, the Government and even her own Cabinet behind her Brexit policy. You cannot deliver what you cannot agree on. Please, tomorrow, take the first step towards stopping the damage.

But this would be *not* the case if UK leaves and has to reapply under Article 49.

Patient lost her benefits, after DWP assessor overturned my clinical opinion that depression makes her not fit to work. She now has no money, and can't afford Xmas presents for the kids. How am I supposed to get her well again?

Terrific work here. Places you recognise with a shiver even if you haven't been there. The river of cars in the flooded quarry is straight out of Climbers or Signs of Life. Facets of landscape both those books were trying to feature.

Parents (regardless of cultural background): if your adult son thinks it is normal or acceptable to play with his genitals in public, your job as parents is unfinished.

Did you ask Mr Gove what, in his view, would change the referendum mandate? If not, why not?
