Brexit: Supreme Court rules against the government

In the wake of the Supreme Court ruling that Theresa May must consult Parliament before triggering Britain's exit from the European Union, attention will inevitably shift to those MPs who now have the power to reject the Government's plan.

Some MPs have indicated they will vote against triggering Article 50 when it comes to a Commons vote.

Few Conservative MPs are likely to vote against the bill, with former chancellor Ken Clarke the only one to have said he will.

Former deputy prime minister Nick Clegg has also said he plans to vote against the Government bill.

Some MPs are planning to go against their constituency's vote in the EU referendum.

Labour MP Owen Smith, who lost a leadership challenge to Jeremy Corbyn, has also said he plans to defy his Pontypridd constituency's leave vote.
