You must be revoking!

This morning’s guidance that article 50 can be unilaterally revoked – without agreement from the EU27 – from the European Court of Justice’s advocate general is a big moment in the Brexit debate.

While the move is not a ruling, it is unlikely the ECJ will ignore it, and it answers a longstanding question. In fact, it was the topic of the third episode of our podcast over a year ago. (Our conclusion, aided by EU expert Roger Liddle, was that article 50 is revocable. You heard it here first.)

If you want to carry on being ahead of the curve, in today’s podcast Alison McGovern explains what we now know about the economic impact of Brexit – she has also written for the upcoming December issue of the magazine on the same topic.
