The Independent has the story on its web site – see link above

Telling quote from the article:-

‘The Lord Chief Justice of England has stopped the UK’s Prime Minister from trying to overturn the result of the Civil War. That war, from 1642 to 1646 and which left one in 10 Englishmen dead in muddy fields, established the sovereignty of Parliament, which Theresa May’s Attorney General sought to circumvent by using an arcane power called the Royal Prerogative to trigger Article 50.

As he should have known, this power cannot be used to repeal an existing law’ and neither should any democrat wish it to be!
