The UK has the power to unilaterally stop the Brexit process, the EU's top legal advisers have said, contradicting statements from London that Article 50 could only be stopped with agreement of all 27 EU member states. The Advocate General, in a report prepared for the European Court in Strasbourg, stated that the UK could suspend the already triggered two-year Article 50 process, according to a lawyer for the group that brought forward the case. The advice comes just five days before Parliament begins debating Prime Minister Theresa May's largely unpopular Brexit deal, before voting on it on December 11. "Advocate General Campos Sanchez-Bordona proposes that the Court of Justice should declare that Article 50... allows the unilateral revocation of the notification of the intention to withdraw from the EU," the bloc's top court's statement read.
