2. SOUNDBITE (English) Nick Clegg, UK MP for Sheffield Hallam:
"This court case should never have been dragged through the courts in the first place. A great tax payer's expense and the only person to blame for that is (UK Prime Minister) Theresa May. I still don't know why she contested the simple idea that MPs should be able to hold the government of the day to account and I now hope that MPs will go a step further and give the British people the say that is rightfully theirs on any final deal on Brexit as it emerges in the years ahead."

"So clearly because the labour party have already given the government a blank check and said that they will support article 50, come what may, there's no threat to the government's plans to trigger article 50 but the terms in which they do that could be subject to amendment by MPs and I do hope that MPs will pluck up the courage, now they have been given the right to have a say about this whole process, to also give the people a say on the final Brexit deal as it emerges in years ahead."

"Yes I think we need a referendum which wouldn't be a second referendum, it would be the first referendum on what life outside the European Union actually looks like. Because of course British voters voted on a basis that they were gonna get 350 million pounds (435 million USD) for their NHS every week, a VAT cut, that our borders will become impenetrable, that we would live in an economic paradise and I think it is very important that the British people do have another say, and have another look at this, when of course it will become obvious that many of the commitments made by the Brexiteers before the referendum are simply not going to come about."

8. SOUNDBITE (English) Nick Clegg, UK MP for Sheffield Hallam:
"Unless the government concedes a new deal for the British people so that the British people have a say over the final arrangements between the UK and the EU I will vote against the article 50 because I don't think it is right for the decision on the final shape of any Brexit deal to be decided only by politicians. I think the British public should be let in to that decision as well."
UK Liberal Democrat MP and former deputy prime minister Nick Clegg has welcomed a Supreme Court ruling that parliament should be consulted before government triggers article 50 to leave the European Union.
Clegg said a referendum should also be held on the terms of leaving the EU, and that he will vote against the triggering of article 50 unless that is given.
He also criticised Prime Minister Theresa May for allowing the case to get to the courts at the expense of tax payers.
