            The European Court of Justice confirms the UK has the power to end Brexit by withdrawing Article 50

            The European Court of Justice has ruled in the Wightman case C-621/18 that the UK may unilaterally withdraw the Article 50 notice to leave the EU (originally served to the EU on 29 March 2017) by giving notice in writing. In such circumstances the Brexit process would come to an end and the UK would continue as an EU Member State on unchanged terms.
