Ahead of the Supreme Court appeal - starting Monday - against the High Court’s decision that Parliament must pass a vote before the Prime Minister can trigger Article 50, Theresa May has come out fighting.
“You could be talking about the Lords disappearing in its current form. They’ve manage to avoid abolition now for quite a long time.”
week, throwing the UK’s plans to break from the EU into total disarray.
“You could have 24 hour sittings to get it through. There's no question in my mind she will invoke Article 50 by the end of March. I'm pretty optimistic.
Professor Mark Elliot, of Cambridge University, who believes Theresa May should be able to use her prerogative powers to initiate the Brexit process, said the law did not guarantee European Union rights.
The academic responded to radio host John Humphrys on Radio 4’s Today program, who said “you argue that we’ve had a referendum, the vote has been taken, the people have spoken”.
He replied: “Well I think legally it’s more complex than that, the Government’s position is that legally it has the power to trigger Article 50 and it makes that argument in the Supreme Court, in its written arguments.
“It says that this is because the legislation that’s already in place that was passed when Britain joined the European Union in 1972, it doesn’t really guarantee that people will always have European Union law rights.

Article 50 can be triggered by the Government using these prerogative powers without the need to go back to Parliament because it isn’t in effect undermining the legislation that’s already in place

“It simply says that they will have those rights, in effect, as long as Britain remains a member of the EU and on that view, Article 50 can be triggered by the Government using these prerogative powers without the need to go back to Parliament because it isn’t in effect undermining the legislation that’s already in place.”
The comments come after he argued in favour of the Government’s case in a series of essays.
In one, he said: “There is, in fact, no relevant conflict between the European Communities Act 1972 and the prerogative.
“Triggering Article 50 does not in itself ‘change any part of the common law, or statute law, or the customs of the realm’, and therefore does not breach the principle… that the prerogative cannot be used to do such things.”
Also speaking on the show was Professor Alison Young, of Oxford University, who argued in favor of Parliament triggering Article 50.
She said: “It is not about trying to say ‘do we or do we not leave Europe’, it’s trying to say ‘if we’re going to go away and trigger Article 50, we have to make sure we do this in the legally correct way’.
“So what the court is doing is checking to make sure that however we leave the European Union, we do it in the proper way and if that requires the consent of Parliament, then Parliament is a democratic body, it too will take into account the will of the people and the referendum result.
“So I don’t see why making sure this is done legally correct necessarily means you’re ignoring the will of the people.”
The comments come after investment manager Gina Miller led the High Court case to stop the Government from triggering Article 50 without a parliamentary vote.
The Government’s appeal will be heard by the Supreme Court on Monday.
