Share Politics: Westminster awaits Article 50
We're only a day on from the Supreme Court's ruling that Parliament and only Parliament has the right to trigger Brexit, and already the gears of Government have whirred into action. Speaking at Prime Minister's Questions today, Theresa May assured Parliament she will give further details of her Brexit vision in a White Paper. Meanwhile, the Prime Minister's Brexit tsar David Davis has made it clear that the Government will not dawdle in seeking Parliament's approval, claiming an Article 50 bill is imminent "within days". So, with a dizzying plethora of Parliamentary processes on the horizon, should the Government expect a smooth ride? And with an Article 50 bill passing through Westminster, how might Labour ? Share Radio's Simon Rose was joined on the line by Dr Luke Cooper, Senior Lecturer in Politics at Anglia Ruskin University and a spokesperson for Another Europe is Possible, and Peter Edwards, Editor of LabourList - self-described as Labour's biggest independent grassroots e-network.
