Parliamentary must approve Article 50 invocation for #Brexit, Daily Bullshit, November 3-4

Brexit

To me, the court ruling that Parliament must approve an invocation of Article 50 has the appearance of setting up an impasse: “The other 27 member states [of the European Union] have said negotiations about the terms of the UK’s exit – due to last two years – cannot begin until Article 50 has been invoked,”[1] but Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn insists that “there must be transparency and accountability to Parliament on the terms of Brexit.”[2] Which would seem to say that the government must apparently put all its cards on the table prior to opening what seem likely to be contentious negotiations with the rest of the EU. To do so would, of course, weaken the government’s negotiating position, meaning the U.K. will get a worse deal, probably somewhat worse than it would put on the table for Parliament.
