EU court advisor: U.K. can cancel Brexit unilaterally

|By:, SA News Editor

Britain can still cancel Brexit by revoking Article 50 without the consent of other EU member states, according to the ECJ's top legal advisor.

The news is a win for Remainers hoping to reverse Brexit when MPs vote on Theresa May’s controversial withdrawal agreement on Dec. 11.

While the decision is not binding, in around 75% of cases ECJ judges will follow the advice of their Advocate General's opinion.
