UK may have to obey EU’s court rulings until 2027 – EIGHT YEARS after Brexit

THE UK could be forced to live under the European Court of Justice (ECJ) rule until 2027 – despite leaving the EU in 2019, according to reports.

Theresa May and Jean-Claude Juncker

Theresa May promised Britain would be free from the ECJ

The ECJ, the EU’s highest court, currently rules over Britain while we are still a part of the Brussels bloc, but Theresa May has promised to disentangle the UK as part of her Brexit “red lines”.

This week the Government will publish how Britain will consider ECJ rulings after Brexit, and while all rulings are expected to be respected until the point of Brexit in 2019, how Britain will handle EU law in the two or three year transition period remains to be seen.
