Abstract

Two years after the UK's vote to leave the EU the notion of what "Brexit" means remains unclear. Some have even spoken of a "blah, blah, Brexit" (Thornberry) by which a vacuous debate is engaged in, in order to secure a formal EU-exit so that, subsequently, a new direction to the process can be decided on (Gove). The extent to which the negotiations are simply meant to run on without resolution to either make a "hard Brexit" inevitable or to ensure a negotiated paralysis is the subject of this paper. The dangers of this "blah, blah, Brexit", the coherence and credibility of the Westminster position(s) in the wake of the Supreme Court's judgment in Miller, especially for Northern Ireland and Scotland, are illuminated.
