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

It appears the Council and the Commission are of the view that unanimous agreement is necessary. (From Reuters)
Quote:
Both the European Commission and the Council of the European Union accepted that Article 50 could be revoked, but they argued that it could only be done with the unanimous permission of the remaining EU states.
The advocate gereralís opinion is promised for 4 December. The day debate begins in Parliament.

My expectation is that Aj will say nothing in Article 50 prohibits a withdrawal which, like the notice, need not the agreement of other member states.

If the Commission doesnít like it they should clean up the typically bad drafting.
