Brexit: UK will be ‘screwed into the floor’ in EU withdrawal talks, warns Ryanair boss | The Independent
Michael O’Leary, chief executive of Europe’s biggest budget airline, campaigned strenuously for a Remain vote in the EU Referendum. He told the Airport Operators Association annual conference: “Britain has no negotiation position whatsoever. You file the Article 50 in March, you walk off a cliff in two years’ time.

"We’re already working on the summer '19 schedule. I need to know what’s going to be happening in March 2019. We can’t plan with that kind of uncertainty.”

Barnier ‘lobbied to stop May withdrawing article 50 in two years’ | Politics | The Guardian
There are concerns among some in the EU that May could be tempted to revoke article 50 once it becomes evident that the two years allowed under the Lisbon treaty is insufficient time for the talks, only for her to then trigger the withdrawal clause once again, artificially extending the negotiating period.

Labour to oppose 'Henry VIII powers' being used to rewrite EU laws | Politics | The Guardian
[ no moderation, moderation is gone. Global Britain is here. 'indyref2 wil happen one way or another. no opposition and no say will infuriate Scots even more eventually ] It is expected that this will involve extensive use of “Henry VIII powers” – laws allowing ministers to change primary legislation (government bills) using secondary legislation (orders that go through parliament with little or no scrutiny). [...] Corbyn said Labour would oppose handing ministers such extensive powers when the House of Commons votes on the great repeal bill.

The U.K. Can’t Block Immigration If It Wants To Keep Its Finance Industry | FiveThirtyEight
The Brexit vote will force the next U.K. prime minister to make a significant choice: Whether to control immigration into the country, or preserve the pre-eminence of the country’s financial center, known as the City of London. Doing both appears to be infeasible. //&!

UK government faces pre-emptive legal action over Brexit decision | Law | The Guardian
Their initiative relies upon the ambiguous wording of article 50 of the Treaty on European Union, which sets out how states could leave the EU. The first clause declares: “Any member state may decide to withdraw from the Union in accordance with its own constitutional requirements.” One of the grounds of a likely challenge to the referendum is that it is merely advisory and the royal prerogative cannot be used to undermine parliamentary statute. //&!

European referendum: Pupils 'fear being forced out'
David Cameron has told MPs that EU nationals' rights are guaranteed while Britain remains in the EU. And he stressed that those in the Leave campaign also wanted to guarantee the rights of those working and studying in Britain. "But," he added, "we can't say that now, we have to say that as part of the negotiation that will shortly take place." //&! The leave campaign insists EU nationals already in Britain would be able to stay – but immigration lawyers say it’s not so simple - - Vienna convention has not been tested and would have to be interpreted by the courts [...] an inevitable consequence of the Brexit campaign is that people will need new documentary evidence of their right to remain [residency test]. [...] Points system could be applied to EEA residents already living here. [...] [keep P60's] [solving the heap of shit needs new law].
