[Overturning] The People’s Challenge

In August, it was reported that Theresa May’s timetable for negotiating Britain’s withdrawal from the European Union could be derailed by a High Court challenge represented by law firm, Bindmans. The so-called, “People’s Challenge” claim that the rights they enjoy as British citizens inside the EU cannot be taken away unless the Acts of Parliament giving effect to EU law are repealed by Parliament. They include Grahame and Rob Pigney, who live in France; Christopher Formaggia, who lives in Wales, Paul Cartwright, who is from Gibraltar; Tahmid Chowdhury, who lives in London and Fergal McFerran from Belfast.
