EU court to rule on uni­lat­eral Brexit halt

The Mercury - - WORLD - |

LUX­EM­BOURG: The EU’s top court will say on Mon­day whether Bri­tain can uni­lat­er­ally halt Brexit, po­ten­tially of­fer­ing a boost to those op­posed to leav­ing the EU on the very eve of a cru­cial and tu­mul­tuous vote in the Bri­tish par­lia­ment.

The Court of Jus­tice in Lux­em­bourg said the jus­tices would de­liver a rul­ing in a case brought by Scot­tish politi­cians who ar­gue Bri­tain can with­draw its plan to leave in March. If May wins her vote on Tues­day, the with­drawal is likely to pro­ceed. But opin­ion polls sug­gest any new ma­jor­ity for stay­ing in the EU is nar­row.
