EU's lawyers argue Britain cannot cancel Brexit without the bloc's consent

Lawyers acting for the EU have argued that Britain should not be able to cancel Brexit without the bloc’s consent in order to prevent political chaos from engulfing the union.

The European Union’s top court is to rule on whether the UK has the power to unilaterally revoke Article 50, after legal action seeking clarity on the matter from Remain campaigners.

The UK started the legal process of leaving the EU in March 2017 by invoking the Lisbon treaty clause, which spells out the steps towards the exit door.
