2. SOUNDBITE (English) Gina Miller, Lead plaintiff: ++AUDIO AS INCOMING++
"Good morning, today eight of the 11 supreme judges upheld the judgment handed down by the High Court in November, in a case that went to the very heart of our Constitution and how we are governed. Only parliament can grant rights to the people and only parliament can take them away. No prime minister, no government, can expect to be unanswerable or unchallenged. Parliament alone is sovereign. This ruling today means that MPs we have elected will rightfully have the opportunity to bring their invaluable experience and expertise to bear in helping the government select the best course in the forthcoming Brexit negotiations, negotiations that will frame our place in the world and all our destinies to come."
3. SOUNDBITE (English) Gina Miller, Lead plaintiff:
"There is no doubt that Brexit is the most divisive issue of a generation, but this case was about the legal process, not politics. Today's decision has created legal certainty based on our democratic process and provides the legal foundations for the government to trigger Article 50."
