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

Boris and the Conservative government already 'have form' when it comes to breaking the law when it suits them.

The Guardian - Johnsons suspension of Parliament was unlawful, Supreme Court rules
Remember the sheer outrage when that happened? And what was the result? Boris Johnson won by a landslide a few months later!

The moral of the story is clear, just because something is law, it doesn't make it "right". The last Parliament behaved appallingly, and it took an election to make them realise this, and on that occasion breaking the law was necessary and acceptable in the eyes of the people.

If, as the Government claim, the Withdrawal Agreement risks the integrity of the UK internal market and sovereignty of the UK, then they may be "right" in breaking international law.
