Should courts be able to overturn government decisions?

Recommended Posts

An Italian judge has just issued a court order allowing a "migrant" ship to dock in Italy in defiance of a ban issued by a government minister.

Is there a chance of similar actions in the UK? Could the courts stop Brexit, or force a second referendum on that and other matters?

CHAOS!

I guess the courts look at things strictly from a legal perspective. If the politician ordered something not right lawfully then yes I would think the court could overturn a previous decision.

Jeremy Corbyn will do that by winning a no confidence vote against the Tories as enough of them are against no deal at any cost.

Brexit won't happen mate!

The lunatics will soon be in charge of the asylum.

MP's are like nappies. Both are full of shit and need changing!

I agree.
Although I am pro Brexit, I can't see Boris succeeding.
Britain is a democracy, but even though 51% of the electorate favoured Brexit, the system is such that their desires can be legally and easily thwarted by Parliament.
The people's voice is tempered by those whom they elected.

Now, if UK were a dictatorship then BJ would have free rein, but since it is a democracy it is quite possible that Boris will be ousted without the aid of the courts.
