    by craig on December 17, 2018 at 11:02 am

    The London Supreme Court last week not only confirmed that the Westminster Parliament could overrule at will any Scottish Government legislation, irrespective of the Scotland Act and the Sewell Convention, but it also ruled that Westminster had already successfully done so, by retrospectively passing provisions in the EU (Withdrawal) Act that overruled the Bill on […] The post The Scottish Parliament Does Have the Right to Withdraw from the Act of Union appeared first on Craig Murray.
