@dick_turpin i've always said if he had anything about him he wouldn't have ran away after the referendum but manned up and lead the Tories. Looks like the Tories & Labour have leaders that are un-electable.
@dekkzz78 But that was the point. He was suppose to lead, he did get tough with the descenters but clearly, these days, nobody in this country wants a leader. They say they do but they don't really and the courts are now willing plunge the country even further down the sewer and people think that's OK because it suites their short sighted views. If Boris had said he was revoking article 50 I'd have been happy with that, at least it would have ended. But we're no better off, nothing has changed.
@rpcutts @dekkzz78 And if the Scottish court (I wonder why they went to Scottishland?) had thrown it out then it wouldn't have been "Rule of law" and if the High court throws it out on Tuesday it won't be "Rule of law" sounds to me like the referendum all over again. "It's not legally binding" #LeSigh
So for one point, the Scottish court got involved because, for now, they are still part of the UK.
And to the other point, no, despite how you seem to enjoy projecting what my opinions are. If thy had found in favour of the government, which I feel they probably should have, then yes thet would have been rule of law.
ok, mate, my appols.
but please understand that a phrase like
" had thrown it out then it wouldn't have been "Rule of law" and if the High court throws it out on Tuesday it won't be "Rule of law" "
Comes across as complete bad faith. So I get riled.

(I'm a conservative, I believe in these institutions and these mechanisms and hate to see them trampled under the weight of populism.)
@dick_turpin but to the point, it's hard to see the Supreme Court deciding that this is a legal matter, honstly can't see it.
Bottom line for me is that it was a political move. (Completely against convention, which, as a rule, I think should be frowned upon and discoouraged). But our constitioin a is unorganised, spread out, and in this case, as far as I know, unwritten. So for the scottish cout to declare it unconstitutional in the eyes of the law is a heckin stretch. The Supremes won't.
@rpcutts And there was me thinking the High Court would throw it out because otherwise they would have had to sent the Rozzers round to Liz's house. 🤣
@rpcutts I think he would have been far more polite.
Stream of inane drivel.
