Boris Johnson’s pals convinced Supreme Court hasn’t got time to block Brexit

REMAINERS threatening legal action to block a No Deal Brexit were warned last night: “Nothing can stop us now.”

PM Boris Johnson’s pals believe there is barely any time to win a court ruling.

There are just 81 days until Britain leaves the EU and the wheels of justice move so slowly we would be out before judges give their decision.

The PM’s senior allies say the only person able to halt Brexit is Mr Johnson himself.

Anti-Brexit tycoon Gina Miller has vowed to launch a Supreme Court challenge to prevent BoJo from suspending Parliament to drive a No Deal departure before October 31.

She has assembled the same legal team that forced Theresa May to grant MPs a vote before triggering Article 50 to leave in 2017.

But No 10 aides say she has too little time to pull it off again.

Timing in Boris’ favour

MPs can vote against No Deal but cannot prevent it.

A vote of no-confidence in the PM would only leave time for an election to be held after Britain has left.

A senior No10 source said: “All this huffing and puffing means nothing now that we have a Prime Minister who is determined to deliver Brexit.”

The insider said Tory rebels such as Dominic Grieve could “cry foul from their holiday homes in the South of France” as much as they like but they will not stop Brexit now.


Meanwhile, Buckingham Palace has held talks with Downing Street to avoid the Queen being dragged into the crisis.

Top civil servant Sir Mark Sedwill spoke to her private secretary Edward Young last week.
