Brexit: The court’s decision – the nature of democracy and the fundamental principle of Parliamentary sovereignty >
You will be well aware by now of the judgment of the Divisional Court handed down on Thursday 3 November in R (on the application of Miller and others) v Secretary of State for the Exiting of the EU  EWHC 2768 (Admin).
