Lawyers For The Uk Government Rejected This, Saying The Argument Was Fatally Undermined By The Fact That Powers Over Foreign Affairs Are Reserved To Westminster.

Brexit now returns to the political realm - and the fundamental political arguments remain the same. The SNP will try to amend the legislation to give the Scottish government a say through the joint ministerial council. The UK government will continue to argue it is seeking to carry out the will of the UK electorate and this is a UK-wide issue. And the divisions the referendum result threw up are likely to resurface in the commons. It's feasible that, if no amendments are accepted, 58 of Scotland's 59 MPs could vote against triggering Article 50. Today's decision doesn't stop Brexit. It might not even delay triggering Article 50. Meanwhile, the Scottish government was also represented in the Supreme Court case, with Lord Advocate James Wolffe arguing Holyrood's consent should also be sought due to the "significant changes" Brexit would have on devolved powers. Lawyers for the UK government rejected this, saying the argument was "fatally undermined" by the fact that powers over foreign affairs are reserved to Westminster. The judges unanimously rejected Mr Wolffe's arguments, saying that the principle of legislative consent "does not give rise to a legally enforceable obligation". They said the Sewel Convention, which provides that Holyrood should be consulted where Westminster legislation cuts across devolved areas, plays "an important role in the operation of the UK constitution", but is not a matter for the courts.

Does this mean flight costs vary according to how superstitious a country is? We did a little of our own research. Not wanting our results to be affected by the immediacy of this months Friday the 13th, we looked at departures for the next flights to san francisco one October 13, 2017 First, we checked the cost of a number of randomly selected routes on Skyscanner. We found that the cost of an EasyJet flight from London Luton to Paris is 8 cheaper (at 39) on Friday, October 13 than it is on October 6. However, we found that there was no difference on BA flights from London to New York, nor on Japan Airlines flights from London to Tokyo. And an EasyJet flight from Edinburgh to Madrid was actually 7 more expensive on Friday, October 13 (at 65) than it is on the preceding Friday. What about 'superstitious' China? So, on the face of it, our research was at odds with the flight comparison websites. But then we thought of looking at China, often described as one of the worlds most superstitious countries. But instead of using China as a destination (which might suggest it is Britons buying tickets), we looked at China as the starting point. To our disappointment, British Airways and Virgin Atlantic prices did not vary between October 6 and 13, when flying from Beijing to London, nor did Air China. The same is true of the Shanghai to London route.
