The landmark decision means Parliament will now have the right to debate and vote on invoking Article 50, although Britain is almost still certain to leave the EU due to the overwhelming support of MPs.
That has not stopped a number of Brexiteers misunderstanding the ruling and declaring it is an act of sabotage intended to subvert the will of the people.
Leading the charge was the Daily Express, which claimed the judges had “overturned” the result of the EU referendum, although editors later changed this to “thwart”.
The Daily Mail — edited by Paul Dacre, who earns over £2 million a year — which branded High Court Judges in the previous ruling “Enemies of the People”, slammed the “elite” and claimed Remain campaigners were “gloating”.
Even Iain Duncan Smith appeared confused (again) at what the ruling meant.
Iain Duncan Smith: I'm disappointed that the Supreme Court are telling Parliament what to do. They've stepped into new territory here.
Inevitably, many Brexiteers denounced the ruling, which means “MPs we have elected will rightfully have the opportunity to bring their experience and expertise” as nothing more than a heinous bid to derail Brexit.
Some think only Farage can save us.
Others went full-conspiracy.
Over in Britain First land, there was even talk of bringing back hanging.
Alarmingly, quite a few people think the ruling is a step towards civil war.
