Transcripts (perhaps draft) of the Article 50 ‘Brexit’ Appeal hearings at the Supreme Court

Well, I would suggest that there is a distinction between the Robinson case and the Axa case. Axa, at least insofar as I understand my Lord's reference, is really about the decision of the court about the extent of the irrationality standard of review, because otherwise Axa should be a question about competence, in relation to the classic limitations on all of the devolved parliaments' EU law, the conventions and so forth.

Robinson is an enormously important case and I will tie, I hope, this in towards the end of these submissions, but if I can flag up the issue, it is that Robinson is about letting government work.
