The European Court of Justice's Advocate General has announced that the UK should be able to unilaterally cancel its withdrawal from the EU.
The announcement by Mr Manuel Campos Sanchez-Bordona was made after a group of Scottish politicians asked the court if the United Kingdom could halt Brexit without having to ask for consent from the other EU member states.
UKIP Leader Gerard Batten said,
"The political establishment intends to reverse the decision of the Referendum and betray Brexit at any cost. Mrs May's surrender document will not pass a House of Commons vote, and the obvious result of that would be for a ‘no deal’ Brexit.
“In order to avoid that they now wish to cancel Article 50 and remain in the EU. The entire strategy of Mrs May and the political class over the last two years has been to arrive at a ‘deal’ that was so bad neither Leavers or Remainers would accept it. The narrative they are pushing is that leaving the EU is impossible and therefore Britain has no option but to stay.
“I have said all along that Article 50 was a trap designed to delay, impede and overturn our attempt to leave the EU. I have also said that Article 50 could indeed be discarded, not to stay in the EU, but to unilaterally leave."
