Less than an hour after the Supreme Court ruled that Parliament must approve the triggering of Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty, setting the UK on course to leave the European Union, we are already seeing nonsense arguments.

Let’s just make a few things clear:

The court case was not about stopping the UK from leaving the European Union. That had nothing to do with it.

The case was about ensuring that Parliament – the elected representatives of the people of the UK – will have a say on the way the UK leaves the European Union.

It means the rule of democracy has been asserted over the tyranny of Theresa May.

She wanted to impose whatever she liked on us, without our representatives having any chance to protect us!

It is shameful that some people are saying she should have been able to run roughshod over our hard-won democratic rights.

Those of you who voted ‘Leave’ – my understanding was that you did so in order to boost democracy, not reduce it as Theresa May has been attempting.

The Supreme Court has told the Tories that they cannot trash democracy in this way and Parliament – the representatives of the people of the UK – must approve any and all options for leaving the EU.

The people who brought the case did so to ensure that Brexit works for the people of the UK, and not just for the Tories and their friends. They did not waste money in doing so, because without their action, the Tories would have inflicted despotism on us.

It is Mrs May and her government who have not only delayed matters by fighting the case; they are the people who have wasted a huge amount of public money on a pointless bid to harm democracy.

Let’s all remember that, when they bring their silly two-line Bill to Parliament, and look forward to some good amendments bringing these contemptible, arrogant, privileged Tories back in line.
