Judgment Day

If Brexit is postponed and if , as asserted today, there is a legal requirement that all existing EU members begin the EU election  process on 12 April by appointing officials etc., the failure of the UK to do so could be expected to result in a challenge before the courts.

As such students will also recall, the judges then face hostility for interfering in the ‘democratic process’ with their critics ignoring the fact that it was the failure of that process which dragged an often reluctant judiciary into the mire.
