WE'RE KEEPING AN EYE ON
The UK government just lost a key court battle that could delay Brexit.
The government must consult parliament before it can trigger the Brexit process, the high court ruled Thursday.
The legal case — brought by Gina Miller, co-founder of investment fund SCM Private — hinged on whether the government has the right to invoke Article 50, starting the formal process of leaving the European Union, without the approval of parliament.
The government is appealing the decision. “The country voted to leave the EU in a referendum approved by Act of Parliament,” the government said in a statement. Prime Minister Theresa May has said she wants to trigger the UK’s exit by March 2017.

The man who wrote Article 50, Lord Kerr of Kinlochard, said he believed Britain could still stay in the EU even after exit negotiations start.
“It is not irrevocable,” he told the BBC. “You can change your mind while the process is going on.”
