RTpay 5pts The 'mixed agreement' class (page 4 of this article) is perhaps the most critical in that it is hard to see how it does not apply to the UK's withdrawal - and therefore 'requires additional ratification by every national parliament in the EU'. In essence, as shown by the CETA delays recently, it is virtually impossible to assume any agreement could be reached by the EU remaining members within the two year term after Article 50. This suggests we are left with three options:1/. Short circuit the process and exit immediately with no agreement as to ongoing trade2/. Demand a change in Article 50 so that an agreement is reached within one year, by simple majority decision on the 27 side, with no referral to other bodies3/. In the likely event of 2 not being immediately acceptable to the 27, to continue full membership (and to block all legislation that is not to the benefit of the UK) until a negotiated agreement can be reached for a fair separation, prior to any Article 50 application.As a connected point, the question of whether today's court action favors the government or parliament, the far bigger issue is whether either should hand over control to each of the other 27 parliaments, as above in the 'mixed agreement' requirement. Surely that is not what anyone voted for?
