Today I challenged David Davis, Secretary of State for Brexit on his "nonsensical" instructions to the government lawyers that it would be trespassing on parliament to involve parliament in the triggering of Article 50.
"Last week, the government were required to publish the submission they put into the court defending their reasons for using the royal prerogative. This is what it said: “The relief sought…to compel the Secretary of State to introduce legislation into Parliament to give effect to the outcome of the referendum—is constitutionally impermissible. The Court would be trespassing on proceedings in Parliament.”
It is obviously nonsensical to say that to involve Parliament is trespassing on Parliament. Did the Secretary of State really give the instructions to the lawyers for this submission?"
