Posted October 11th, 2018 in brexit, constitutional law, news, parliament, rule of law by sally

‘Over the next six months of the Brexit process, the UK Parliament will make a number of decisions that will have a profound impact on the UK’s constitution and its legal systems.

The following day, Theresa May declared that the burden was then on the EU to devise a plan for Brexit.’

Brexit white paper – Law Society’s Gazette

Posted August 1st, 2018 in brexit, EC law, employment, immigration, news, parliamentary papers, visas by sally

‘on 12 July, the government published its much-anticipated Brexit white paper on the future relationship between the UK and the EU. Secured in cabinet sessions at Chequers, the proposals broadly cover post-Brexit economic and security partnerships, cross-cutting cooperation, and institutional arrangements under the familiar but increasingly threadbare banner of ‘taking back control’. To the surprise of few, the plan was immediately criticised by Brexit hardliners as defeatist, diluted and dispirited. To the surprise of many, including the prime minister herself, it prompted the resignations of foreign secretary Boris Johnson and secretary of state for exiting the EU David Davis.’

Solon Solomon: The Chequers Agreement: Brexit and the Infeasibility of Judicial and Legal Independence – UK Constitutional Law Association

‘The Chequers agreement reshapes the UK Brexit position. By formally throwing its lot behind a soft Brexit, Theresa May’s government has made a point. It is unclear how this stance was influenced by the House of Lords voting in favour of such a soft Brexit some months ago or by the City entrepreneurs voicing their support to such a scenario. Projecting into the future, it is equally unclear how the Chequers agreement will impact UK politics and the government’s viability.’
