BRITAIN LEFT THE EU ON FRIDAY 29 MARCH 2019

' ... Parliament can not, legally, change the UK Withdrawal Act in order to delay the UK departure beyond 29th March with a ‘Statutory Instrument’'
Consequences of the court ruling that triggered Article 50 and UK Withdrawal Act in 2017
'The significance of this High Court ruling is that Parliament can not, legally, change the UK Withdrawal Act in order to delay the UK departure beyond 29th March with a ‘Statutory Instrument’ but will actually need a full Act of Parliament to do so.'
SO ACCORDING TO THE UK WITHDRAWAL ACT 2017,
TOO RIGHT.
BRITAIN LEFT THE EU ON FRIDAY 29 MARCH 2019
So if Parliament, or the government, try to do so against the rule of UK law [there is some weasel letter between TM and the EU which they hope can over-ride UK law, and of course the will of the people expressed in a democratic referendum in June 2016], then we have, instead of a dispute like that between the King (Charles I) and Parliament in the 17c, we have a dispute between parliament and the sovereign people (well over half of them anyway) and we all know how that panned out*.
Whilst cutting off the head of parliament is only metaphorical, the result of such abuse by parliament, could well lead to consequences that would be only too real and nasty.
Think again Theresa May, think again Parliament.
* In January 1642 Charles made what was the most foolish move of his reign. He burst into the Houses of Parliament with 400 soldiers and demanded that the five leading MPs be arrested. The five MPs had had advance warning and had fled.
In June 1642 the Long Parliament passed a new set of demands, called the Nineteen Proposals, that called for the King’s powers to be greatly reduced and a greater control of government to be given to parliament. This move divided parliament between those who supported the Nineteen Proposals and those who thought parliament had gone too far.
Both Parliament and Charles began collecting together their own armies. War was inevitable. People were forced to choose sides and on 22nd August 1642, the King raised his standard at Nottingham.
