High Court Referendum Ruling

Today’s High Court ruling calling for a Parliamentary vote on triggering Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty must not be allowed to de-rail Brexit, said UKIP leadership contender Paul Nuttall.

“I’m disappointed with the court’s decision and MPs should not try to use this to defy the decision of the British people.

“The decision to leave the EU was made by the majority of voters in this country and as we live in a democracy means this must be enacted,” said Mr Nuttall, North West MEP.

“We always knew there would be hurdles before we can finally shake off the shackles of the EU and the role of UKIP is hold the government’s feet to the fire and make sure the will of the people is obeyed.”
