As per today's ruling (which of course isn't the final word) the government didn't have the authority to make such a promise.

It's as if I asked EF members what should happen to your house, adding "what you decide will happen". I have no authority over you or your possessions hence the promise is worthless.
In that case, the entire referendum was just a massive opinion poll, and the likes of Junker and Merkel have no right to demand Britain invoke article 50 soon, or indeed at all.
