High Court A50 Ruling Irrelevant
The ruling by the High Court that Parliament must vote to trigger Brexit is irrelevant:
1 Theresa May can invoke it by simply writing to Juncker et al. Once she has done that it cannot be uninvoked, even if parliament flays her alive.
2 The ruling simply covers the triggering of Brexit, the actual terms and conditions of Brexit remain in the hands of the government, not Parliament.
All in all the ruling is irrelevant, and nothing has changed!
