Brexit was a political tsunami, which swept across the UK. Rejecting calls from all major political parties which wanted the UK to remain in the European Union (EU) people voted for a withdrawal last year. Prime Minister David Cameron, who took the referendum gamble in keeping with a pre-election promise and campaigned hard to keep the UK in the EU, had to resign. It was thought at that time that Brexit would trigger itself, unhindered though the referendum was non-binding. But, a recent UK Supreme Court ruling has come as the proverbial straw for the opponents of Brexit. It has prevented Prime Minister Theresa May from exercising her executive powers or ‘royal prerogative’ to invoke Article 50 of the EU’s Lisbon Treaty to make Brexit a reality.
