Lords and Ladies

Brexit means Brexit. Or maybe not. The constitutional basis for Brexit has not yet been resolved it would seem, amid debate over whether there is a need to bring the invocation of Article 50 before Parliament. The majority of MPs are Remainers, but ones which are unlikely to go against the wishes of the electorate. The Lords, on the other hand, have a freer hand in such matters, and at the very least could add significant delay to the process of ratifying the exit. Regardless of the proposed constitutional review of the position in autumn, the timeframes for invoking Article 50 appear to be drifting, as the key principles of the negotiations and the identity of those that will negotiate them still lack clarity.
