11/12/2018 Brexit is a failed project. Labour must oppose it | Paul Mason ,,The opposition should get behind a second referendum – and vote to remain

Sometimes, in politics, you just have to fight for what you believe in. I believe that – amid the current geopolitical meltdown – staying in the European Union and reforming it is safer than casting ourselves adrift with a bunch of rightwing Tory xenophobes at the helm.

But since the referendum, I’ve understood that a leftwing Labour government can only be achieved by building a coalition of voters across the Brexit divide. It’s a belief based on the experience of the 2017 general election, when I campaigned in solidly working-class areas where, to keep a doorstep conversation going for more than 30 seconds, the first sentence had to be: “We will deliver Brexit.”

Returning to the subject of the Brexit secretary’s refusal to rule out “returning to the Scottish courts to overturn” the ECJ’s ruling that article 50 is unilaterally revocable (see: 9.08pm), respected legal minds are less than impressed.

Brexit Secretary says Govt "may look to appeal in the Scottish courts" against ECJ judgment on revocability of Article 50.
