British constitution in the making

This week saw us shellshocked by a High Court decision. Three senior judges ruled that no other body than the Parliament has the power to make or unmake the law.

A storm followed, both in the media and among ordinary citizens. The government announced it would appeal from the court ruling, the Leavers question the judges’ abilities and Remainers’ hopes are rising.¬†Commentators suggest that if the government wins its appeal, May’s Brexit timetable could be on track, however if a parliamentary vote is indeed required, the negotiations in the Commons and the Lords could extend for months.

For all the EU citizens this could mean a long time of still not knowing if we would eventually be allowed to stay and on what conditions.
