    I thought anything (with an e) was acceptable.

    Judgment, is that the same as an error of judgement?

    <hr>

    Judgment is considered a “free variation” word, and the use of either judgment or judgement (with an e) is considered acceptable.[4] This variation arises depending on the country and the use of judgment in a legal or non-legal context.

    British, American, and Canadian English generally use judgment when referring to a court’s formal ruling.[5] Judgement is commonly used in the United Kingdom when referring to a non-legal decision.[6]

    Judgment is also used in Australian and New Zealand English when referring to a court’s formal ruling.[7][8] Non-English translations of judgment demonstrate varied spelling. For instance, the English translation of France’s Code of Civil Procedure.

    Just trying to educate you.
    Obviously a pointless effort.

    I was trying to make a joke. That’s obviously beyond your educational limits.

    Loopski seems to live in a third person singular world, access to which is denied to others. I’m just waiting for his autobiography to be published in the hope that it might give some insight to him. So far his posts have not afforded that.

    The Royal Prerogative cannot be used to overturn an Act of Parliament. In order to exit the EU the Act for joining nees to be repealed. This can only be done by Parliamentary approval. It’s a safety mechanism to prevent a majority government, or more accurately the executive, from just deleting Acts at will. It seems that those that are moaning about the High Court ruling have little regard for the process of law and have taken the slim majority at the referendum as a mandate to do whatever the hell they feel like. Some half-wit will undoubtedly try to invoke Godwin’s Law but this really is the way the NSDAP gained power, and exclusive power, from a minority of the German electorate.

    The first paragraph of your post has no direct relevance or bearing on the Art 50 question but it does fill up space.

    <hr />

    Like nearly all your posts, then.

    I read today that the UK government is having difficulties educating younger minds.

    So with older minds loopy is facing a daunting uphill task in any attempt to comment on your first paragraph.
    Loopy feels freed to desist and use valuable time instead on scratching an annoying boil on the bum.

    On the today programme there was an item about Germany so keen to keep the UK in the EU to assist them with its reform that they will suggest changes that will permit free movement without the insistence of the benefit payments to migrants thus making the UK not so attractive a place for them to want to go to . If only they had agreed to this when Cameron wanted it we would not be where we are today .

    <hr />

    It’s a fair point that you make, but not sure that Cameron pushed hard enough on those key issues. In any event he totally underestimated the momentum created by Farage and the gutter press,  no doubt realising all too late that his referendum decision was a massive mistake.

    The situation is now compounded whereby non elected PM Teresa May, closet pro leave supporter appoints three anti euro Rottweiler’s in Fox, Boris & Davis to sit at the top table, spewing out their personnel vitriol at any opportunity.

    Whilst some might call it a distasteful anaolgy, Bluebird, to me the situation in the UK seems to be rather like that of Andreas Lubitz and Germanwings Flight 9525. Someone who was unfit to be in control of an aircraft, which is full of passengers, locks out of the flight deck those fit for control and then, regardless of those people hammering on the cockpit door and pleading for him to stop, consciously flies the aircraft into the side of a mountain for purely self-motivated reasons.

    Yep, that’s distasteful alright. And ever so slightly paranoid.

    Distasteful maybe, but bang on as an analogy. I’d go one further and say the death toll will be much greater.  I personally  know two people who would appear to be on the edge mentally as a result of the stresses and strains of the Brexit vote, I’m sure this is just the tip of the iceberg.

    Distasteful is what it has become poommehomme, to say the least. Your analogy is certainly relevant. I’m rather hoping that there is a Liam Neeson type character on ‘BrexitAir flight EU-01’ …. able to wrestle the controls from the manic Captain May.
