Abstract

The Miller case was of great interest to the legal and political establishment. But was it a landmark ruling for constitutional law? On the contrary, argues Simon Witney: the case was all about politics. Parliament made an error in drafting the EU Referendum Act, and then failed to clarify it. But Parliament, as this week’s vote showed, was quite content for the government to trigger Article 50. Enlightening though it was, the whole case was a waste of time and public money.
