The attached transcript of the 4 Supreme Court judgments - majority of 8 - and 3 dissenting in full make very interesting reading for lawyer and non lawyer, leaver or remainer

That the government was right to litigate, and establish the extent of the prerogative, and this serious issue of what action follows the 23 June decision is beyond question.
As always, reading the judgment is advised before commenting on what the judges actually said or did, and why. I fully support the Supreme Court judges, and our judiciary, who are a cornerstone of our rule of law, and people we, as a country, should be very proud of.
Full transcript here: the majority opinion is first and the 3 dissenting judgements follow. If you like your law in bite sized pieces the last judgment is short and pithy!
