Today’s High Court ruling calling for a Parliamentary vote on triggering Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty sadly comes as no surprise, said local UKIP MEP James Carver.
“The Establishment are doing exactly the same as happened in Denmark, Republic of Ireland, the Netherlands and France, in previous EU referendums.
“They are clearly trying to ignore the will of the people but whatever machinations they try, I am convinced we will leave the EU.
“And those opposed to will of the people as demonstrated by the result of the referendum should appreciate that our relationship with the European Union can never be the same again. If they try to keep us in, the EU will make us suffer,” said Mr Carver.
