Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

The reason for a central court is to have consistency in judgements and a single source of reference.
The last thing you need is multiple conflicting interpretations of international laws.

In the same way there is a Supreme Court in the US to limit individual States from going off in weird directions like, for example, abortion laws.

In the case of the ECJ they adjudicate only EU laws; so only applies to countries within the EU jurisdiction.
And this is were the EU, which was originally proposed to be an economic free trade union, has transformed itself into a political union, and seeks to be a federalised super-state, seeking to eradicate the national states within it. That is not what it was approved for, and hence you see the backlash against it.
