DECLARATION THAT THE UNITED KINGDOM LEFT THE EUROPEAN UNION ON 29TH MARCH


This is our PRESS RELEASE:-
 ENGLISH DEMOCRATS – CLAIM FOR A DECLARATION THAT THE UNITED KINGDOM LEFT THE EUROPEAN UNION ON 29TH MARCH 2019



On 2nd April the English Democrats, the English nationalist political party, issued a judicial review claiming the Prime Minister could not lawfully agree to an extension to the period before the United Kingdom could leave the European Union under Article 50 of the Treaty on European Union.  The Court is asked to declare that, because she had no such power, the UK automatically left the EU on 29th March – the original ‘exit day’, two years after notification was made.
This challenge was to the extension offered by the EU on 27.3.2019 and accepted by the PM on 28th March not to the additional extension the PM claimed to agree to today (11th April).
There is a link below to the Submissions filed in support of the challenge.  The Government is expected to reply by 17th April.
The English Democrats’ case is that the PM has no statutory power to agree to an extension.  The change to ‘exit day’, in a statutory instrument under the European Union Withdrawal Act 2018, can only be made if the Article 50 period has already been extended under international law.  If the PM had no power to extend, Parliament could not lawfully make the statutory instrument.
The English Democrats rely on the Supreme Court decision in Miller v Secretary of State, which found that the government cannot change how and whether EU law applies to the UK by the Royal Prerogative.  The PM could only notify under Article 50 under the EU (Notification of Withdrawal) Act 2017.  The inevitable result was that the UK would leave the EU after two years, when EU law would cease to apply to the UK.  Any extension would change the law by making EU law apply beyond that date, which the Act did not give the PM the power to do.
In addition, the English Democrats’ case (also relying on Miller) is that an agreement to extend the Article 50 period would frustrate the purpose of the 2017 and 2018 Acts; particularly as there is no restriction on the length of any potential extension and the number of extensions that may be requested – as the latest extension has shown.
The ‘Cooper-Letwin’ Act giving Parliament power over extension requests has no effect, as no further extension could be given if the UK had already left the EU by the time it came into law.
The English Democrats rely on the Wightman decision of the European Court of Justice in support of our contention that, under EU law, the PM can only agree to an extension ‘on behalf of the UK’ if she has the constitutional authority to do so.  Therefore, the UK left the EU on 29th March under EU as well as UK law.
Former Court of Appeal judge, Sir Richard Aikens, has said the English Democrats’ argument is at least ‘highly arguable’, see https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6882583/Former-appeal-judge-says-legality-Brexit-extension-tested-court.html.
Solicitor Robin Tilbrook, who is the Chairman of the English Democrats, said that:-
“The good news for all those who voted Leave is that we could already be Out of the EU without being saddled with Theresa May’s appallingly bad deal!  The challenge to Leave supporters is that this case is our best and maybe our only chance of actually getting out of the EU.  This means that we must win it at all costs!  I therefore appeal to all Leave supporters to put all differences aside and to unite in supporting this case”

  2. Good luck with the case. Makes me so angry that they have sat there for all this time and really done nothing. May is up to her neck in stopping us leave this dictatorship and all the corruption that goes with it.

  3. Any payments of EU membership fees to the EU from the British taxpayer after 29th March should be returned to our pockets as we have left their club already.

  9. I don't understand. According to our constitution anyone giving aid or helping to give rule of our realm to a foreign power amounts to treason (or words to that effect). Exactly what May and any remainer is attempting to do. The constitution stands, so why hasn't this been addressed by anyone. No prelate, prince etc, can hold power over the country unless defeated in war.
    What is the point if nobody is held to account.
    The signing over our forces is classed as a standing army.
    Treason and for which king Charles was beheaded.
    Don't understand why nobody is charging May or the rest with treason.

    1. Because THEY are all sycophants to the NWO and globalism. Money is also at the root of it all, as THEY all have foreign investments. Total disregard of the heritage and tradition of the British Isles, and our brave and resourceful citizens.

  11. The very fact that this has been squashed by both the government and the main stream media tells me that the judiciary have no intentions of giving this due process of law, and will give a judgment (and excuse) that goes against all the evidence. The judiciary are a big part of everything that is wrong in modern Britain.
