We are disappointed by the court's judgment in this case. We will appeal that judgment to the Supreme Court. And none of this, in any way, diminishes our determination to respect and deliver on the outcome of the referendum. But we won't achieve a good negotiation outcome if this is a negotiation being run by 650 people in this House of Commons, or nearly 900 in the other place.
No negotiation in history has been run that way. Indeed, if Parliament insists on setting out a detailed minimum negotiating position, that will quickly become the maximum possible offer from our negotiating partners.
