“An irrevocable step is going to be made in the form of the Article 50 notice,” Neuberger said on the second day of arguments in the Brexit appeal. Both the government’s case, that it doesn’t need to consult Parliament before notifying the EU, and the legal challenge trying to force a vote, assume that Article 50 is irreversible.
