The Brexit High Court Defeat – Legal Peppersoup Episode 4

Yes, this is all unfolding like a strangely written soap opera.

The High Court has ruled that the government can not trigger Artice 50 of the Lisbon Treaty without a vote from Parliament.

The government has appealed this decision and it has been fast tracked to the Supreme Court to be heard in December.

We are in the studio with Lawrence Jegede to discuss its implications and whether it will have any effects on EEA nationals and their family members in the UK.
