The European Court of Justice has ruled the UK can cancel Brexit without the permission of the other 27 EU members. The ECJ judges ruled this could be done without altering the terms of Britain’s membership. A group of anti-Brexit politicians argued the UK should be able to unilaterally halt Brexit, but they were opposed by the government and EU.
The decision comes a day before MPs are due to vote on Theresa May’s deal for leaving the EU. The campaigners hope the victory in their legal case will increase the chances of Brexit being called off completely, potentially through another referendum.
