We have assumed control...

It's somewhat ironic that one of the main pillars of the Brexit campaign was the notion that we (UK) would regain control of our own legal system and law-making ability. It looks like we've done exactly that today, and the result of this clarification of our UK law is that the Government cannot trigger article 50 of the Lisbon treaty (in order to expedite exit from the EU) solely on it's own; consultation with Parliament will be required, i.e. the precise terms and process of Brexit will need to be agreed by our elected representatives before this current Government can agree or do anything with our European partners. This is great news; and hopefully will allow time for the country to understand the epic economic and cultural mistake that this decision represents and engineer a softer more sensible position within Europe for all of us.
