The British Supreme Court is expected to announce its decision on whether or not Article 50 can be invoked without the British Parliament. Investment fund manager Gina Miller, who brought the case, has been the target of threats and insults.
British Prime Minister Theresa May has called for national unity, exactly a year ahead of Britain leaving the EU. May was speaking during a whistle-stop tour that took in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
Britain's highest court is to rule on whether the process of leaving the European Union can begin without parliament's assent. Ministers are reported to be drafting a bill in case the ruling goes against them.
When Gina Miller took Theresa May's government to court, she did not expect so much vitriol, she tells DW. But it was all to make sure that the British Parliament would get a say when it comes to triggering Article 50.
The UK government has launched its Supreme Court battle over the power to trigger the process of Britain leaving the EU. Much tension surrounds the decision, with both pro and anti-Brexiteers eager to have their say.
