REVEALED: Senior MP now THREATENS action over ILLEGAL Article 50 extension!


Sir William Nigel Paul Cash, better-known as Sir Bill Cash MP has today written a letter to President of the European Council stating if the British Prime Minister were to accept any proposal for a long extension he believes she would be acting unlawfully.

Sir Cash’s letter comes as it has been widely reported that the  European Council may propose a very significant extension period of up to a year.

“Any decision by the Prime Minister to accept a long extension to Article 50 is likely to be challenged in the UK courts.” – Sir Bill Cash MP

In his letter, to Mr. Tusk marked as ‘URGENT’ Sir Cash, the Chairman of the European Scrutiny Committee of the House of Commons said:


“I believe it that it would be impossible for the Prime Minister acting lawfully under UK law, to accept any proposal for a long extension.

First, the Prime Ministers own stated position is that ‘a long extension… would at least delay and could destroy Brexit’ (Hansard Commons), 29 March 2019, col. 768.)

For the Prime Minister to agree to such an extension in these circumstances would be for her knowingly to use her power in a way that she herself believes would risk frustrating Parliament’s intention that the UK must leave the EU.  This would be legally unacceptable.”
