In a glorious day for Remainers, three big events rocked Britain today.
Firstly, the European Court of Justice states that Britain can legally stop Brexit all on it’s own, without having to beg the 27 other E.U members that it had made a terrible mistake. Upon this statement, the pound rose in value, and the chance of May’s Brexit deal passing the Commons vote on the 11th December dropped, as MPs are safe in the knowledge that Brexit can be put to a stop if it has to.
Secondly, in a historic first in British Political History, May’s Government was found in contempt of Parliament over its refusal to publish its full legal advice on the Brexit deal. May’s Democratic Unionist Party allies joined Labour and other opposition parties to inflict defeat on the Government by 311 votes to 293. This was the first time ever a government was found in contempt in UK political history. It also showed the major cracks between the DUP and the Conservative Party. This vote was part of 2 other votes where May was defeated, meaning she lost three Brexit defeats in the same day in back to back blows.
Thirdly, and more bizarrely, Nigel Farage has quit UKIP in protest of the new leader, Gerard Batten. Mr Farage quite after 25 years in protest over new leader Gerard Batten’s ‘obsession with Muslims’ and his appointment of Tommy Robinson as an adviser on ‘Muslim rape gangs’: “And so, with a heavy heart, and after all my years of devotion to the party, I am leaving Ukip today,” he wrote in The Telegraph. “There is a huge space for a Brexit party in British politics, but it won’t be filled by Ukip.”
All three events has probably boosted morale for Remainers, as Britain’s chance of leaving the European Union
The only negative news story of the day in terms of Brexit is that the BBC cancelled the Brexit debate between May and Corbyn, as a workable format couldn’t be agreed on, however, the ITV debate is still on the table.
