Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Well then. Everyone should be happy with this sensible ruling :
A Scottish court has delayed a decision on whether Boris Johnson should be forced to ask for a Brexit extension until after the final deadline has passed next week.
Anti-Brexit campaigners had asked the three judges, Lord Carloway, who is the lord president, Lord Brodie and Lord Drummond Young, to issue court orders forcing Johnson to send the letter to the EU as required under the Benn act.
That legislation, the European Union (Withdrawal) (No 2) Act, requires Johnson to write to the EU asking for an extension until 31 January if he fails to get a Brexit deal agreed at Westminster by 19 October.
In an unusual move, Carloway said the issues were so significant and time-sensitive that the court could not make a definitive ruling on whether the prime minister had broken the Benn act until 19 October had passed.

He said the judges would suspend a final ruling on whether to order Johnson to comply, or send the Benn act letter to the EU itself, until Monday 21 October. Then, he said, "the court will expect to be addressed on the facts that present themselves".
