[Scotland Court of Sessions] rejects latest request to force PM to ask for Brexit extension
appeal! Here it comes ...

The UK government's lawyers told the court on Friday Johnson would write that letter if required and argued that a legally binding order was therefore not needed. The government also promised not to THWART the act's provisions by LOBBYING EU member states to reject ["]calls["] for an extension to article 50 [ie. THE FARAGE VETO!].

Anti-Brexit campaigners are expected to appeal against the decision on Tuesday, when they will ask another Scottish court to write the article 50 extension letter if Johnson fails to do so.
