Press/Media: Expert comment

Release date: 13/3/2019

Description

“If Parliament votes repeatedly to say ‘the moon is made of cheese,’ it doesn’t mean the moon is made of cheese,” said Rob Ford, a professor of politics at the University of Manchester. “Parliament can say, repeatedly, that they don’t want no-deal, but the legal reality is that no-deal will happen unless they vote for something else to happen.”
