Attorney General Geoffrey Cox was today warned that using a Vienna Convention article to get out of the Brexit backstop was a “complete non-starter”. The QC was also told he risked turning his “codpiece into a figleaf” if he changes his legal advice, which had been dubbed a “codpiece”, in an eleventh-hour bid by the Government to persuade Tory and DUP MPs to back Theresa May’s plans. Mr Cox was reported to be in talks with the DUP about arguing that Article 62 of the Vienna Convention could be used for the UK to pull out of the Northern Ireland border backstop unilaterally if talks on a trade deal hit the rocks. But the House of Commons Library made clear that using such a route to pull out of the Withdrawal Agreement may not succeed. Professor Philippe Sands, a UCL law professor, and lawyer Martin Howe QC, who sat on the Brexiteers’ legal “star chamber” which rejected Mrs May’s deal earlier this week, were … [Read more...] about Using Vienna Convention to get out of Brexit backstop a ‘non-starter’

Only three days since Arsenal teetered on the brink of their first mini-crisis of the season, Unai Emery’s side suddenly find themselves back where they want to be. Thursday’s squashing of Bate Borisov guaranteed their progress in Europa League, and this routine victory over Southampton returned them to the holy land that is the Premier League’s top four.
