The British Supreme court has on Tuesday given that the British parliament must first vote on the Brexit process before the government Article 50 to withdraw.

The supreme court in London ruled late last year that the British government, the parliament, the consent should ask for can be started with the retirement of the United Kingdom from the EU. The government then went in appeal. Eight of the eleven chief justices were joined now to the judgment of the High Council.

Article 50 of the Lisbon treaty is the only way a member state, EU membership may terminate. On June 23 of this year, voted with a narrow majority of the British people for the withdrawal of the Uk from the EU.

Members of parliament who are against the retirement, now votes against. If a majority of the parliament at the start of the article 50 procedure consent, the Brexit formal so do not continue. However, it is the question of whether members of parliament dare to speak up against the opinion of the British population.
