Robert Craig: Can the Government Use the Royal Prerogative to Extend Article 50?

UK Constitutional Law Association

Introduction

The possibility of extending the Article 50 process is being discussed in media outlets and social media. There are a number of potential scenarios where a short extension might be sought:

  1. to implement the Withdrawal Agreement in law
  2. to manage the process of a no deal Brexit
  3. to hold a general election
  4. to hold a second referendum

This post seeks to explore some of the legal questions that arise if an extension were attempted. It should be noted that the effect of an extension would be to continue membership of the EU, for the time being. It will be assumed, solely for the purposes of this post, that political agreement of the EU is obtained to extend the Article 50 period as required as a matter of EU law.

In reality, such consent cannot be assumed, as Eleanor Sharpston has pointed out. She also suggests that it might…

Poles Apart: Polish Government Bans New Wind Farms & All Existing Turbines Gone by 2035

STOP THESE THINGS

Faced with thousand of furious rural voters sick of being overrun by industrial wind turbines, Poland has effectively banned all new onshore wind farms.

The prices fixed for new wind power contracts are so low as to mock hopeful developers, making it highly unlikely that any new contracts will be entered.

And, clearly spooked by hostile rural voters, the government has determined that every last wind turbine must be removed from Polish soil by 2035, including their monstrous 3-400 m³ steel reinforced concrete bases.

The hostility to wind power is not limited to rural communities, voters across the country are furious about spiralling power costs, too.

The result is due in no small part to lawyer, Marcin Przychodzki, the founder of the “Stop Wiatrakom” (“Stop the Wind Farms”) blog – who is now the Director of the Ministry’s of Infrastructure Legal Department.

Armen Alchian, Harold Demsetz and Ben Klein Should Win the 2009 Nobel Prize in Economics

Truth on the Market

With the start of the school year comes another fall tradition here at TOTM: Nobel speculation.  More specifically, every fall I yell from the rooftops that some combination of Armen Alchian, Harold Demsetz and Ben Klein should win the award.  In 2006, I argued that the UCLA trio outperformed the more conventionally wise trio of Holmstrom, Hart and Williamson by standard citation measures.  In 2007 I repeated my call for the UCLA trio (hedging my bets by also pulling for GMU colleague Gordon Tullock — another well deserving candidate) and was disappointed again.  2008?  I’m nothing if not consistent.  In October 2008 I wrote:

I’m sticking with the UCLA economists: Alchian, Demsetz and Klein for contributions to the theory of the firm, property rights, and transaction cost economics.  An Alchian and Demsetz prize is probably more likely, but Klein’s contributions with Alchian to the theory of the firm along with…
