Two senior judges have blocked a legal challenge to the government’s strategy for leaving the single market and the European Economic Area.

In a hearing at the high court that lasted less than an hour, Lord Justice Lloyd Jones and Mr Justice Lewis dismissed an application for a fresh judicial review of the Brexit process brought by two sets of claimants.

The judges were due to give reasons for their decision on Friday afternoon.

Campaigners had argued that parliament must legislate separately to trigger article 127, taking UK out of European Economic Area.

    my take mike on the Brexit process is that unless a plan caters for the public on a very wide range of change of policies then it will certainly fail

    The dangers of the EU as a whole failing are very dangerous and every step needs to be taken to keep the other 27 EU countries as one

    just imagine the back to dictatorships of some of the EU countries going it alone in which Nigel Farage hadn’t even given this a thought

    quite a few EU countries acting alone would indeed become bankrupt then what? another point both the UK public and Nigel Farage don’t understand

    If the EU goes under the uk goes under another point that the prime minister herself doesn’t understand

    The world runs in LOGICAL WAY and any attempt to interfere with that process leads to either a war or terrorism

    Personally, i can’t see any benefit whatsoever by being out of the EU as all the main business markets at this time are accounted for being served mainly by Mexico and china

    And this can’t change as it is china with the largest population which ultimately must call the shots (makes sense)

    Had we had japan instead of china undertaking this role then that would be great but japan does not use cheap labour so therefore as a top world exporter has had to rule itself out as from 2000
