Scottish judge and lower house can still stop Brexit

The British government will also submit to the lower house the legislative proposals needed to allow a brexit farewell to the EU. It is possible that these laws will come to parliament on Monday, together with the Brexit proposal that was not taken into consideration on Saturday.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson wants the parliament to approve his Brexit deal. On Saturday, however, the House of Commons voted for an amendment stating that the deal will only be approved once the corresponding legislation has been implemented.
In addition, the government is presenting proposals for investments in health, education and the fight against crime & #8221 ;. A vote will be taken on Tuesday, Sky News reports. The question is whether President John Bercow will allow this procedure.

The Supreme Court in Scotland will not rule on Monday whether Prime Minister Johnson has complied with the law by sending conflicting letters to EU. The court will, however, continue to deal with the case brought by a number of opponents of the Brexit. A date for the next session will be set.

The British government previously promised in court that Johnson would not thwart the mandate of parliament. By sending conflicting letters to Brussels, he would not have kept that promise, say lawyers for three opponents of the Brexit.

After Johnson was not piloted by Parliament on Saturday, he was forced to ask the EU for a postponement. Although he did that in one letter, he subsequently sent a personal letter afterwards, in which he asked the EU leaders not to grant the delay.

If the court determines that Johnson has acted wrongly, he may in theory be fined or even sentenced to jail, The Guardian reports. The government asked the court to dismiss the case because Johnson would have fulfilled his obligations. The judge did not agree.
