Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Display:
The Prime Minister must seek to obtain from the European Council an extension of the period under Article 50(3) of the Treaty on European Union ending at 11.00pm on 31 October 2019 by sending to the President of the European Council a letter in the form set out in the Schedule to this Act requesting an extension of that period to 11.00pm on 31 January 2020.

This is the text under discussion. The PM does not stand accused before any jurisdiction concerning the above, for the evident reason that this obligation is time-dependent: it does not apply before the 19th of October. Before that date, no Prime Minister can possibly contravene. Whatever "hearings" may exist concerning other matters, there are none whatsoever concerning this now-enacted Bill.

Things are going to slide, slide in all directions
Won't be nothing
Nothing you can measure anymore
