The UK is free to revoke unilaterally the notification under TEU, art 50 of its intention to withdraw from the EU. Such a revocation, decided in accordance with its own national constitutional requirements, would have the effect that the UK remains in the EU under terms that are unchanged as regards its status as a Member State.
Aidan O’Neill QC was involved in this case.
