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

Whats truly amazing though is that no one mentioned this during the whole campaign! Really extraordinairy. You've all these people, The Gina Millers, Nick Clegg, loads of people bringing law cases, all of them seem to have suddenly woken up and though "hold on, they can't do that, it's illegal" at the same time! Isnt that just an amazing coincidence ? that not any one of the thousands and thousands of remain lawyers and specialists actually realized that what the government was trying to do was impossible legally during the campaign and so no one said a thing about this during the entire referendum, then as if by magic, they've all realized now that it needs lots more legal backing and they've all raised lots of legal cases against it - not to stop it of course, no one is suggesting that - no just to help it along, make sure 'due process is followed'.
"what the government was trying to do was impossible legally" But Brexit is not impossible legally
It is simply that the route May has chosen has opened up the possibilities for legal cases.

You could also write that before the Referendum it was not clearly stated;
  • we will not consult the UK Parliament or the Scottish, Welsh and N. Ireland ones during the Brexit process
  • we will also leave the EEA
  • we will also leave the single market
