Welcome to Belfast High School Government and Politics department
We don't look at the Supreme Court until later in the next term but DO pay attention to the news. One of the key areas you look at is the role of the Judiciary in political matters. There is perhaps no greater case than at present. The subject is BREXIT. There has been a challenge made that the UK cannot leave the EU without Parliaments vote on the issue as Parliament is sovereign. The fact that a majority in the country voted in the referendum to leave is at odds therefore with the Parliament which contained a REMAIN majority. Big questions will be answered which could have major implications..
