The European Court of Justice (ECJ), on 10 December, ruled that the UK may unilaterally withdraw its notification to leave the EU without having to seek approval from the other EU Member States. The Court clarified that the UK could thus remain in the EU ‘under terms that are unchanged as regards its status as a Member State.’ The ruling will boost remain campaigners’ calls for a second referendum in the UK.
