The news that there may be a legal case about whether any Article 50(1) decision has to be by Act of Parliament perhaps creates a paradox for the Leave side.
The paradox can be characterised as follows:
Leave Supporter: “We want our own Parliament to be sovereign on matters to do with the EU!”
Response: “Like on whether to Leave then?”
Leave Supporter: “No.”
Those who campaigned Leave so as to uphold Parliamentary Sovereignty are now unhappy at prospect of Parliament being sovereign about whether to Leave.
