CASE STATE OF PLAY: (Added Official Press Release)
Robin Tilbrook has again kindly forwarded to me updated content, related to the Court Case, releasing the following Legal Case Press Release;
ENGLISH DEMOCRATS – CLAIM FOR A DECLARATION THAT THE UNITED KINGDOM LEFT THE EUROPEAN UNION ON 29TH MARCH 2019 PRESS RELEASE
On 2nd April the English Democrats, the English nationalist political party, issued a judicial review claiming the Prime Minister could not lawfully agree to an extension to the period before the United Kingdom could leave the European Union under Article 50 of the Treaty on European Union. The Court is asked to declare that, because she had no such power, the UK automatically left the EU on 29th March – the original ‘exit day’, two years after notification was made.
This challenge was to the extension offered by the EU on 27.3.2019 and accepted by the PM on 28th March not to the additional extension the PM claimed to agree to today (11th April).
There is a link below to the Submissions filed in support of the challenge. The Government is expected to reply by 17th April.
The English Democrats’ case is that the PM has no statutory power to agree to an extension. The change to ‘exit day’, in a statutory instrument under the European Union Withdrawal Act 2018, can only be made if the Article 50 period has already been extended under international law. If the PM had no power to extend, Parliament could not lawfully make the statutory instrument.
The English Democrats rely on the Supreme Court decision in Miller v Secretary of State, which found that the government cannot change how and whether EU law applies to the UK by the Royal Prerogative. The PM could only notify under Article 50 under the EU (Notification of Withdrawal) Act 2017. The inevitable result was that the UK would leave the EU after two years, when EU law would cease to apply to the UK. Any extension would change the law by making EU law apply beyond that date, which the Act did not give the PM the power to do.
In addition, the English Democrats’ case (also relying on Miller) is that an agreement to extend the Article 50 period would frustrate the purpose of the 2017 and 2018 Acts; particularly as there is no restriction on the length of any potential extension and the number of extensions that may be requested – as the latest extension has shown.
The ‘Cooper-Letwin’ Act giving Parliament power over extension requests has no effect, as no further extension could be given if the UK had already left the EU by the time it came into law.
The English Democrats rely on the Wightman decision of the European Court of Justice in support of our contention that, under EU law, the PM can only agree to an extension ‘on behalf of the UK’ if she has the constitutional authority to do so.
Therefore, the UK left the EU on 29th March under EU as well as UK law. Former Court of Appeal judge, Sir Richard Aikens, has said the English Democrats’ argument is at least ‘highly arguable’, see https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6882583/Former-appeal-judge-says-legality-Brexit-extension-tested-court.html.
Solicitor Robin Tilbrook, who is the Chairman of the English Democrats, said that: “The good news for all those who voted Leave is that we could already be Out of the EU without being saddled with Theresa May’s appallingly bad deal! The challenge to Leave supporters is that this case is our best and maybe our only chance of actually getting out of the EU. This means that we must win it at all costs! I therefore appeal to all Leave supporters to put all differences aside and to unite in supporting this case”

WHY MAINSTREAM MEDIA AREN'T COVERING THIS:
I have mentioned this in previous updates below and will rightly keep reiterating it, as it is incredibly important that those who support this Legal Case, understand this.
To be perfectly frank about this, we cannot be surprised that this question is even been asked, I mean honestly?
The MSM as a near enough collective entity across the whole of the UK, both in Print and Online, have FULLY REVEALED during the past 2.75 years, that almost all don't carry any shred of decency, or honour towards a MAJORITY VOTING ELECTORATE RESULT!
It really is so plain to see, that they are clearly directed on what they can and cannot cover, how and how not to cover various news items etc. Let's not forget that 'Government D-Notices' are now rife within our MSM too, the Modern Day ‘Coverup Medium’.
Also, with Brexit, it is of course not the current Government's wish to deliver on the Referendum Result, whatever they claim externally. We have by and large all seen that in the past few weeks, more than ever actually, if ever we needed to see it any further.
Additionally, the Establishment and any MSM that side with them, will NOT give any credence to this case at any point, unless absolutely necessary, likely until it is in a court room. For the simple reason that if they did acknowledge it much more, they would then open several varying types of 'Pro-Brexit Floodgates' and this is just not their narrative or overall agenda.
Yet again, Brexit has to be thanked, not least for opening a wider collective set of our population, to the tricks, the duplicity, the incompetence, the collusion, the corruption and the downright annihilation of this once Great British Democracy!
WHICH PRESS / MEDIA HAS SUPPORTED IT TO DATE:
For clarity, these are;
YOU CAN FURTHER ASSIST THOUGH:
You can share this blog, Robin's pages which are throughout these Case Update posts, to as many Regional, National and even International Media Outlets as you can spare sometime to find. It will truly help to further turn the screw, on our already screwed Government and Quisling Littered Parliament whilst shaming the State of Such BIASED Press in the UK!!!
Don't be afraid, it will only take a little of your time but can assist just as much as the Donation Requests, or the Sharing of Robin's case on our behalf, to all of your Family, Friends or Business Associates by Social Media, Email or In-Person contact, if they are Pro-Brexit!
To date, you have all assisted in raising over £80,000. An incredible well done to all donors to date but the fact STILL stands, that we can NOT stand still and think that the job is done, as this is far from the case right now.
What we ALL NEED TO DO, is to be channelling positive energy into, is this very modern-day fight of Democracy David vs. Grotesque Goliath, it really is that simple.
SO WHY WE WILL PUSH ONTO £100,000 AND BEYOND?
Make no mistake, the ‘Defendant(s)’ will have the VERY best of Barristers at their disposal, where Robin’s team which is acting on behalf of 17.4m in effect, need to have the ability to counter this and keep this fight going.
It has been mentioned previously, this is a ONE-SHOT legal challenge (including relevant appeals of course) and cannot be mishandled in any way, shape or form, including having the suitable financial resources to instruct ANY such additional requirements, as the case needs in an ongoing capacity.
These do NOT come cheap and I have mentioned it before but will mention it again: The Gina Miller case cost circa. £1.2million from start to finish, this is just a reality.
I cannot cease certain negative comments, likely from naysayers, or possibly from Remainers in Leavers clothing. This is just a sad indictment of the negative sides to Technology and the Internet, when adding to the state of our Political System and those within it, we're in an incredible highly unethical mess and we as Leavers are in no way responsible for it.
I also cannot force people to believe in this case, it's cause and the expected just outcome. However, I know that this is our most realistic chance to gain what we originally voted for, back in 2016... This is also OUR ONLY most realistic chance too!
HOW CAN I DONATE?
If you have previously donated to Robin via the English Democrats Party website and their ‘Donation’ vehicle, once again thank you.
